Wallpaper Conservation and Restoration

We offer a full range of wallpaper conservation and restoration services including cleaning, conservation and analysis. We can perform invisible touch-up, cleaning and repair of historic papers. Since the preservation of the original work is essential, we always practice minimally invasive methods and treatments to insure as little disruption of the original surface as possible.
