After recovering and drying an object that has been damaged by water, fire or mould, additional steps are often needed before the object can be used safely.
After drying an object, we assess the damage according to the following criteria: material, object type, value, purpose, conservation status and condition prior to being damaged as well as current condition. Weighing these criteria is instrumental in selecting a treatment method for each individual object. We ask how the object will be used in future, and what condition it should be in to do so. We adapt our treatments so that – under due consideration of all factors and ethical principles – we can offer a method at an optimal cost-benefit ratio. Our computer-aided object tracking system guarantees a complete documentation of the object’s history during the entire remediation process – without changing the indexing system in the client's archives or library.
