Our trained art handlers and conservators will create an inventory, pack and transport the damaged contents, and work at the property when necessary.
The experience we possess in disaster and damage management can reduce the stress and difficulties of having to organise the recovery yourself, thereby minimising interruption and allowing your personal property or business premises and contents to be restored more quickly.
Disaster and accident recovery can be a difficult process, and as such we use our expertise to work as quickly and sympathetically as possible.
Accidental Damage: Water and Fire
When safe to do so, we can attend a site visit and assess the conditions of the paintings. A subsequent written conservation report with photographs will detail the appropriate recommendations for restoration.
The scale and type of damage will determine the plan for restoration.
Fire damaged paintings are susceptible to severe soot and ash ingress in the paint layer, blistering, flaking, cracking, and warping of the stretcher bars which could lead to tears and distortions.
A large proportion of paintings we restore have been exposed to water and fire damage. By acting quickly, we can mitigate the damage to your artwork and stop further deterioration
Our extensive experience in handling and treating water and fire damaged paintings, while utilising scientifically-proven conservation methodology will ensure your artwork is preserved for the future.
