Fire and smoke can severely damage a painting or other piece of artwork, even if the artwork is framed. The damage that fire, smoke, soot or other fire-related residue can cause to a work of art can be extensive, but with the right treatment and expertise, it can often be reversed.
We understand how important timeliness is when it comes to fire-damaged artwork. If left untreated, the damage to a piece of artwork caused by fire or smoke can become worse over time, possibly leading to cracking, flaking, drying out, or discoloration.
When it comes to restoring damaged artwork, especially smoke or fire damaged artwork, it is critical that a restorer with a high level of skill and experience handles the cleaning, restoration and repair.
