Farcroft book restoration craftsmen can recover and restore most types of paper documents, from single sheets to entire library collections.
Paper is fairly durable in most circumstances, but contact with moisture quickly causes damage as paper begins to swell, becomes distorted and tacky, discolours and if left unattended bacteria multiplies and forms mould. Using the very latest processes, including vacuum freeze drying, we can extract the water from your documents.
Documents can be sensitively cleaned, sanitised and de-odourised. Paper can be smoothed and reconditioned in such a way that in most cases, the client is unable to detect that a document was once damaged.
