It’s Time to Take Care of Your Outdoor Artworks

It’s Time to Take Care of Your Outdoor Artworks

Don’t delay - schedule your Spring and Summer Cleaning Today!

One of the best ways to ensure your outdoor collection retains its value and beauty is through preventative maintenance. Artech specializes in providing professional cleaning and preservation of outdoor artwork through regular maintenance programs. Metal and wood artworks can be impacted by the elements, as well as exhaust, soot and contact with the public.

Some outdoor works are susceptible to insect, bird or other small animal infestation. Bird droppings can leave a permanent stain if left untreated. Over time, the effects of these elements can cause damage that cannot be reversed, and maybe not even arrested. Caring for your collection by implementing a regular maintenance program will help preserve the work for the long term.

Works such as wood art, artifacts and story or totem poles should be carefully inspected by professionals in order to determine the best preservation treatment. Wood is especially susceptible to rot and infestations that can cause permanent damage. Our lead wood restorer will review your work and recommend a maintenance and preservation solution.

Our experts are prepared to provide whatever is required for the repair or restoration of your outdoor artwork. From washing and waxing to the construction and installation of a proper mount system to lift the object from the ground, we’ll work with you to determine the best course of action for your collection.

If your collection is installed in the greater Puget Sound area, you know the window for outdoor work is typically from June - September, so be sure to schedule your maintenance soon to get on our schedule. If your work is outside of the Pacific Northwest and in a more weather-friendly area, we’ll make arrangements to service your collection at any time. The best way to care for your collection is to ensure that it is maintained by the expert teams at Artech.

Give Yourself a Time Saving Gift

As leaders in the art handling industry, Artech upholds the highest standards of service in the field. Whether we provide installation, shipping, crating, preventive care or ongoing maintenance of on-site artwork, we bring an existing knowledge base, experience and numerous resources to any project.

Now, we’re bringing our expertise online through our Collection Management tool. In addition to caring for your collection through regular maintenance, make sure your documentation is kept accurate, current, secure and consolidated with a digital database.

Although the process of properly documenting a collection is complex, we’ll make it effortless for you. Artech will spearhead the evaluation of your collection, including appraisals, condition reports and establishment of ownership for all artwork. We’ll also photograph each piece and integrate all documentation into one password-protected digital database, available to you anytime, from anywhere, with a click of your mouse.

We’ll maintain and update your database by keeping track of any new acquisitions, deaccessions or location changes of your artwork, whether you loan it to a museum or gallery, or choose to enjoy it at your vacation home. With Artech, you’ll know your documentation is complete, accurate and readily accessible for insurance, tax, legal or other purposes.

We use the leading collection management software to archive and track all of the public and personal collections we manage. This same software is used by major museums throughout the country including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Getty and The Smithsonian.

At Artech, our highest priority is the safety and preservation of the artwork and collections we manage. Give your Account Manager a call or send us an email to find out how we can simplify your life with our state-of-the-art Collection Management tool today.
