Scheduling your art for a "check-up".
If my framer has used conservation quality materials, why would I ever need a check-up?
Conservation framing is important "insurance" for your art. Conservation quality materials are specially designed to protect your artwork from physical harm. Utilizing UV-filtering glass will actually protect your artwork from 99% of harmful ultraviolet light.
Conservation quality mat board has been stripped of all harmful impurities and buffered with calcium carbonate to prevent future changes in acidity.
Despite these precautions, your artwork is subjected to attack every day from UV light, moisture and heat. There are no ordinary precautions you can take to eliminate these environmental elements.
Yet their presence, if unchecked, can eventually damage your art. Regular check-ups can help you identify a problem in time to make a change.
