Antique pictures and prints have never been cleaned and the dirt and chemical
build-up on both sides of the glass can cause permanent harm to both the image
and the matting. We offer a 10-Step Cleaning and Conservation Service that cleans
the picture, glass, and mat, adds protective acid-free backing materials, provides
long-term protection, improves the look, and which also includes authentication
and current valuation.
