Recovery Priority during the first 24-48 hours:
- Dry items immediately. (If there are too many sheets to dry within 24 hours, then freeze them. Freezing is preferred to air drying.)
- If coated papers are allowed to dry in contact with one another, then they will fuse together.
- Cover papers with plastic to prevent partial drying until they can be frozen or salvaged.
- Use extra caution with large sheets; wet paper is easily torn. Support with screens or polyester webbing.
