Preventive Conservation of collections
Preventive conservation of collections is a procedure aimed at preventing or slowing down the degradation of archaeological, cultural, historical and artistic objects by implementing preservation measures and strategies.
This procedure aims to avoid potential damage caused by the environment, mishandling, climatic factors, pests and other internal and external influences, rather than simply reacting to damage that has already occurred.
That's why we carefully document the current condition of objects and artifacts, and provide professional consultations to prevent their future degradation.
