. Our motto is to repair and preserve rare artifacts from the effects of negligence, willful damage or more usually inevitable decay. For effective services, we follow a systematic methodology. Firstly, we try to understand and minimize or eliminate conditions that can cause damage to these artworks. Causes of Damage :-
Exposure of artifacts to inappropriate environment is one of the most vital causes of their damage. This also includes display or storage in areas where there is excessive exposure to light, high and/or fluctuating temperature and humidity levels, dirt or insects. Besides this, damage can also be caused by careless handling and the improper cleaning of organic objects. Method of Working :-
After receiving the object in organic or inorganic form, our professionals examine these under magnifying glass so that we could know problem, decay and causes. After stringent analysis a condition report is prepared regarding the actual condition of the object. Following are the steps we follow while rendering these services:
- Documentation of object like the present status of the artifact, filling of condition report, photography record of before & after treatment
- Fumigation is done in airtight fumigation box/chamber with insecticide/ fungicide ( if object is organic)
- Process of cleaning, deacidification (aqueous and non aqueous method) and repairing/restoration work started
- After treatment report & photographic record of the condition of the object before and after treatment is given to the owner for his/her records.
