Gilded frame clean

Our team is on hand to expertly clean frames from all eras, including grand baroque gilding with decorative features, through to modern or contemporary styles which may have a wide variety of materials to consider.

Our frame conservators can clean the following issues and more:

  • A build-up of dust and debris
  • Staining and discolouration
  • Contamination from fireplace soot, smoke staining and nicotine
  • Lost or damaged gilding – these areas can be cleaned and reapplied by our trained team
  • Cleaning following water damage from floods and leaks
  • Mould growth and moisture damage
  • Decontamination and prevention of common pests such as woodworm 
  • Dust build-up in small crevices and delicate areas 

Routine cleaning

Frame maintenance cleaning will help you stay on top of any dust build-up and contamination which may be in these particles, as these may damage the structure over time.

We do not recommend that an untrained person cleans a frame beyond a very gently dusting at home, as this may often lead to accidental damage. 

Disaster recovery

It is important to professionally clean a frame for both routine care and following a disaster. 

Cleaning following a flood, fire or escape of water is also important to clear away the debris and dirt which could severely destroy the structure if left untreated.

Antique Restoration

How much will my restoration cost?

The restorers at Fine Art Restoration Company were a delight to work with. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very helpful and patient. Their work was top-notch, both my paintings have given new life and completely renewed our experience of viewing them. Highly Recommended.

Fine Art Restoration collected our large oil painting and delivered it with impeccable care. The restoration of the damaged artwork was expertly carried out, bringing back subtle colouring, and included the repair of broken and missing details of the gesso on the frame such that they were perfectly matched. We were delighted with the communication throughout and with the results achieved.
