"I called my insurance company and they immediately contacted your company. Robert Ball stated he would arrive to my home within an hour. He did….amazing!!!. I cannot say enough about the professionalism of your technicians…I had the feeling that every thing was going to be okay. In the afternoon on Saturday, I had reason to call Robert Ball, as I was concerned with my circuit breaker was tripping with the increased load created by drying equipment. Robert answered his phone…no voicemail…once again, amazing!! "
-Dan Brown
“I was impressed with everyone who cleaned our house – very friendly and hard workers.” 
- Connie Thingstad
“We are writing this letter of reference for ProRestore DKI because of our appreciation and amazement of the service they showed us with their new way of cleaning product. Everything ProRestore DKI has cleaned came back to the store smelling fresh and free of stains and marks. I foresee us utilizing this service in the future when we come across some good, used sports equipment that really smells but has the quality to be resold. I recommend this cleaning service to anyone who has involvement with sport activities. From teams to single families, this service works.”

In an emergency situation, your priority should be to get yourself and your family to safety. However, you should also realize that there’s some valuable information (like legal documents or family pictures) that you can’t afford to lose.

In these cases, your best bet is to keep them safe so if an emergency were to arise, you can rest assured that they won’t be completely lost. In order to help you out with this, ProRestore DKI in Grimes is here to share a few ways on how you can prevent important information from getting ruined in disasters.

How to Protect Important Information

Keep Them in a Safe

First and foremost, you should get a safe or a container big enough to place those valuable documents in. Just make sure that it will be able to withstand the elements and harsh conditions in a natural disaster or another emergency.

Keep Them Dry

If you want to take this a step further, make sure that those papers won’t be ruined by liquids by making them waterproof. For example, you can laminate them or place them in a waterproof folder.

Back Them Up

Another great way to ensure that the important information will be safe is to back it up. To do this you can use a few different methods, for example:
Make copies of the documents and keep them in another location far from the originals, so it’s less likely that you lose them in their entirety.
You can also scan and upload them to a reliable storage website. Just make sure to verify the site’s privacy terms and security so there are no risks. 

Trust in Others

Lastly, you can also keep your information safe by taking your copies to trusted friends or relatives. Ask them to store them in their house for you so you can rest assured that they’re protected.
