Storing legal documents is an essential yet often complicated process, with ever-expanding archives stipulating the need for more space in which to keep it.

We are skilled in providing instant, effective dehumidification with the preservation of your materials always regarded as priority. Having worked within your sector for almost fifty years, we understand the implications of damage or loss.

Manuscripts exposed to a humid environment are likely to turn mouldy when damp and consequently decay over time.

By dispatching your order instantly, we eliminate the risk of dampness and ultimately help restore moisture-affected areas back to their original condition.

As with legal documents, historical data also requires protection from humid environments because of the effect it can have on paper material. This can comprise of business transactions, revenue spread-sheets or even stock price information, and needs to be held in a cool, dry place. Files of this variety, although normally sensitive and confidential, must be easily accessible for auditors, accountants and similar professionals.
