At one time, that photograph was your new possesion. One that was displayed so proudly then finally retired to a drawer, album, or a storage box somewhere. When re-discovered and viewed again, many years have passed and to your disapointment, those memories are far from that proud creation you once considered with admeration. What Happened?
The physical enemies of photographs include obvious villains, direct sunlight, insects and rodents, and the more subtle: adhesives that degrade over time, sulfur compunds that can be given off by wood or rubber and trigger fading, and high humidity that can encourage mold growth. There are measures that can be taken to prevent premature damage and the disappointment attributed to this.
Natural disasters are another enemy of photographs, unpreventable but items such as photographs are covered under most insurance policies. You will find our recommendations for after rhe fact treatment and preservation later in this material. Our "Insurance Perils"
page covers your insurance rights and those areas we may assist in restoration.
"Photo-ER" is continually investigating restoration techniques and preservation methods and until they develop the damage proof and permanent photograph we will be available to preserve and restore your precious memories.
The precautions that we take with our photographs now are essential to their future. How we handle those of the past are as equally important for you to take a few moments to see what measures need to be taken to prevent disappointment later.
