Smoke Damage

 

DISASTER RESPONSE

We can respond immediately and work either with your insurance company or clean-up team to streamline communication.  

DO NOT TOUCH OR WIPE THE PAINTING covered in soot or ash.  Even the lightest touch will grind the particles into the painted surface and permanently discolor it. Smoke damage on fine art must be treated by a Conservator trained in Emergency Response. 

Please call us immediately after the damage has occurred because the longer the soot sits on your painting the more secondary damage it will cause due to the high acidic nature of soot.

We follow the field guide to emergency response provided by the Heritage Preservation Group from the National Institute for Conservation.

We have worked on hundreds of smoke damaged art pieces from house fires.
