Disaster response

We have the experience and current museum knowledge base to ensure your objects have the best possible chance of surviving any kind of damage or trauma. Our staff have worked in a number of high profile recovery teams removing, documenting and treating damaged materials from disaster sites. Read more about disaster response in our conservation stories, and about our involvement in the Clandon State bed retrieval after the catastrophic fire.

Disaster Response Services

Luckily disasters of this scale are rare but the damage caused by any size disaster can be reduced by accessing expert help fast. The need to assess damaged textiles and assist clients when dealing with claims is an inevitable part of our practice. We have wide experience of providing condition reports and treatment proposals for the repair of damaged objects and we can liaise with you and your insurance broker when required.

We are experienced at providing a fast and efficient response to your pest outbreaks and have a large freezer at our studio in which to treat your objects. Over-sized pest treatments can be arranged off site on your behalf with suppliers that we trust and use regularly.

Our team are available to come on site immediately to assess the damage and and deal with your disaster, large or small with a cool and calm approach.
