Document restoration >> Fire Damage

When a fire breaks out, it almost every incident there'll be some kind of water damaged associated with the fire. Whether the fire was hot enough to set off the fire sprinklers or if the fire department was called, the employment of water will most certainly be used in an attempt to control and completely extinguish the Fire Damage. The following is a guideline that can be used in a document restoration.

  1.  If your books, artwork or other kinds of documents have been Fire Damage. There could be light damage, the fading or discoloration. By the use of this treatment only with some materials where some light damage is acceptable. When the mold spores have become dormant through drying they can be removed, by using a vacuum cleaner and/or a soft bristle brush. After vacuuming, dispose of the bag. Clean all brushes to prevent spreading the more mold spores. Follow all safety precautions, they are particularly important as this Fire Damage stage.
  2. Water damage to the exposed materials may be irreversible. The special Fire Damage treatment of the items of high monetary value, historic or sentimental value must be referred to a conservator when possible. If that is impossible, you could be able to scan the item, you can use photo imaging to repair the fire/water damaged area. Someone skilled in the area of photography and computer imaging might be able to assist you. In order to select a Fire Damage restoration professional that is best qualified to treat your particular object, contact the referral service that is maintained by The Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation (FAIC).
  3. They can provide you with an extensive list of conservators in your location that can assist you to find appropriate conservation treatment. When the fire damage is already done and there is little that a non-specialist can do in order to clean or repair your works of art on paper. The traditional, old reliable remedies such as bread crumbs to clean off and remove dirt and commercially produced tapes used to repair tears and rips may do more harm than good, unless the only alternative to temporary taping is the further fragmentation of all of the separated pieces and resulting in a serious loss of material. In this latter case, you should hand the Fire Damage damaged work to an art conservator as soon as possible.
  4. If the prints and drawings really got wet, for example from a massive burst pipe, it is better to lay them all out separately on commercial blotting paper to dry utilizing a good cool air circulation, rather than the use of an artificial heat source. In the rare case of a serious flood or a Fire Damage, get immediate help from a conservator as soon as possible. With this professional treatment, the delicate condition of the paper and image could at least be stabilized so that it's deterioration will not progress. Most Fire Damage can be restored by a skilled conservator, but remember that faded colors could might not be restored to their original brightness and the most severe paper staining only be reduced rather than completely removed.
