Thank you for using Syncfusion products.
In the DocIO DOM we have reference properties in each element to preserve the parent, child relation between all the document elements. Whereas in Close() method we have explicitly unlink the child elements from its parent element by removing the reference to the parent element and clear all the child elements from parent’s child collection. This operation is required specifically to remove references of all the instances used by DocIO DOM, in order to ensure no instance is referred anywhere/alive in the current scope and the used resources can be freed.
Kindly invoke Close() method of WordDocument class to free the resources used by each WordDocument instance. Please find the code snippet below for your reference.
//Releases the resources used by the WordDocument instance.
