Many of our patrons invest in and collect art, many of them are passionate about it and some of them are talented artists themselves. While performing cleanups at their residences and studios, we have realized that paintings need to be treated with love and care. We clean them up too, in addition to the remaining surfaces & crevices.
Keeping the moisture away.
We do not specialize in restoration (yet) but we do understand how to perform a dry cleaning session so the work of art starts glowing again. The right softness of the paintbrush, the right strokes and dry hands form the key in ensuring a good session. Wet hands and wet dusters are kept far away from your precious paintings.
Understanding what we clean.
The nature of the paint used determines the cleaning process, so the dry process works best because it carries minimal risk. Vacuum machines have narrow nozzles which can be employed to suck up the dirt & dust which is a wee bit stubborn. Bread slices have the potential to play an effective role in dust removal from the surface.
Prevention is better than cure.
While it is perfectly possible to clean and restore your priceless paintings, it is best if we can ensure that such a situation seldom arises. Paintings can be displayed in low traffic and cleanest areas possible, and it is best to mop the floors to minimize particulate pollutants in the air which love to settle down on surfaces. Keep your paintings away from areas where the hot winds frequent (like Mount Doom), and they will be safe.
