Moisture is a major enemy in the fight to preserve antiques and artefacts that form an important part of our heritage.
Paintings, furniture, linens and other organic materials contain micro organisms which thrive and multiply in high humidity conditions – invariably causing irreversible damage.
Valuable metallic objects and structures are susceptible to oxidisation and corrosive degradation.
To avoid expensive and complicated restoration costs, environmental conditions (which are naturally aggresive), will require adjustment and control.
If the relative humidity is maintained within limits, no micro organism or bacteria activity will occur and metallic surfaces will be free from corrosion. Our heritage can easily be protected against degradation for future generations to appreciate.
