Any claims presented to you for art, artifacts, decorative or painted furniture, gilt frames, sculptures, photographs, tapestries, or china, require special knowledge and treatment.  In many cases, subcontractors and cleaners have caused permanent damage to otherwise repairable objects in the process of removal, cleanup, storage, repair or reconstruction of damaged premises; all because of the lack of knowledge of the need of special treatment and care.

You should be aware of the issues involved in handling art and cultural objects subject to damage from fire, smoke, water, insect, or accident.  Art Conservation Services of Sarasota would like to assist you by giving you a free briefing and demonstration of ways you can protect yourself and your clients against unnecessary expense, further damage, or replacement due to inexperience of ignorance in handling. 

We have saved insurance companies thousands of dollars both by preventative education and by restoration instead of replacement of valuable art.  This is a specialized area, one that you owe to yourself, your firm, and your clients to know more about.  At no cost to you, our conservator will come to your location and give you a demonstration of how you can protect yourself against unnecessary cost of replacement.  Please call for an appointment now so you can learn how to handle these problems the next time they arise.
