Damage from Pollution

The effects of indoor pollution are intensified if artefacts are kept within an enclosed environment for long period.

You should:


  • pack your collectibles safely away during house renovations as they are most sensitive to indoor pollutants.
  • dust the artefacts on display regularly with a soft brush and vacuum surrounding areas.
  • keep stone artefacts such as those made from marble and limestone indoors to avoid exposure to acidic gaseous pollution and general weathering.
  • put silver artefacts in anti-tarnish bags for storage.
  • store textiles, paper and photographs in archival quality boxes or envelopes.
  • have good quality mounting and framing for your treasured paintings and paper.
