I don't know what service Chivers supplied but have you tried Harwell Drying Restoration (based in Oxfordshire) http://www.harwell-drying.demon.co.uk/ - similar I should think? Also the one thing about Harwell is that they cover all buildings within our council and not just the archives.

Subject: Emergency recovery service
Until the liquidation of Cedric Chivers last month, we were registered users
of its emergency recovery service, which entitled us to priority response in
the event of a disaster.
Period Bookbinders have now taken over much of Chivers' work, but not, I am
reliably informed, its emergency service.
Does anyone on the list know of an equivalent service offered by any other
company? A quick browse in my copy of "The Directory of Suppliers" didn't
come up with any leads.
Please reply on list, as I'm sure that this matter is of interest to many of
