Saving Art From Mold Damage 

If you’ve had a brush with disaster in your Crestwood, MO, home, then you are probably facing a hard decision regarding your art collection. Water damage can lead to mold damage, which can spread rapidly if left untreated. Luckily, you don’t have to say goodbye to your paintings – restoration is often possible. Whether you need mold cleaning services for your art studio or a curated collection of professional pieces, some objectives remain the same. These are the goals:

  • Remove any storage materials and frames for cleaning or disposal.
  • Remove the mold safely and effectively while preserving the artwork.
  • Prevent the mold from returning and spreading.

Act Quickly

Don’t delay in taking action to save your paintings. Mold spores live everywhere, and as such, they can multiply quickly after water damage – or even if your artworks are just improperly stored. Paintings that are kept in damp, dark areas, for example, can harbor mold without experiencing any water damage. You can rescue your works of art if you make a plan quickly and enlist the help of mold cleaning experts to create a professional mold remediation plan that will improve the chances of restoration.

After your artworks are restored, it’s important to keep them displayed or stowed safely so the mold does not return. They need to be in dry conditions and any storage materials or frames need to be properly sanitized or replaced.

Don’t Panic

Mold can be a scary situation to face. You don’t want to lose your treasured belongings, but taking the wrong action can also damage them further. Paintings vary greatly in composition, and it’s important to know what type you have to treat them properly. It’s best to contact professional mold remediation teams to safely and effectively restore your paintings.

With fast action and expert help, mold cleaning doesn’t have to cause you a headache. You can keep your treasured belongings in great shape and enjoy them for years to come with the right plan.
