Disaster recovery companies

From: Frederick Honneffer <fhonnef>

This request is being posted in an attempt to locate companies which
offer comprehensive disaster recovery services for both buildings and
contents (equipment and collections).  To my knowledge Munters Moisture
Control Services and Document Reprocessors are frequently mentioned for
document recovery and environmental stabilization but not extensive
building and equipment clean-up.  The Restoration Company, however,
probably best known for the recovery of the World Trade Center buildings
and contents after the bombing, seems to offer a broad array of
services.  Is anyone familiar with this company's record as it pertains
to libraries and archives?  A small group of such clients are listed
among the company's references.  If any of you are familiar with this
company or others like it or even better, have recently required
recovery services, would you be so kind as to share your experience or
simply some thoughts on this topic.  Thank you.

    **** Moderator's comments: Check Conservation OnLine. There's a fair
    amount of disaster-related material there.
