Fire and Smoke Damage Art Restoration and Antique Restoration

When exposed to fire and smoke, fine art and antiques can require special care in order to properly clean and address the soot and odor. Great care must be paid to not affect the patina and historic wear, while remedying the damage related to the claim.

Water and Mold Damage Art Restoration and Antique Restoration

Water damage to fine art and antiques can cause damage to the framing materials, or result in water staining, distortion, and if not address in a timely manner, even mold. Wet items should be slowly and methodically dried to avoid further damage.
