DOCUMENTS AND RECORDS RESTORATION AND DIGITISATION SERVICES

ADR has many years experience handling important documents damaged by water or soot and has therefore developed advanced techniques for restoring and conserving these irreplaceable records. Often documents and records that have been wet or stored in unsuitably damp conditions will begin to have mould growing on them. This can represent a serious problem for staff members that work with these files, as exposure to mould can lead to serious health problems. ADR has been engaged on many projects for Loss Adjusters, Insurers and various Government departments where documents have been damaged. ADR are widely considered the industry experts in document recovery and remediation and have the capacity to manage large volumes of files quickly and efficiently. Our Caringbah facility has specifically designed and built environmentally controlled chambers for appropriate drying or storage of wet or mouldy records as well as a purpose built document restoration facility for the processing of contaminated documents.

ADR's document management includes a facility to digitise records to create electronic data files which conform to governmental standards for use in any electronic information system. A sophisticated book scanning system to convert books to electronic files for publishing online or for long term storage purposes is also available.

What ever your document restoration or digitisation requirements, "Rest Assured" that ADR is prepared to handle it with care for you.
