A firm dedicated to ensuring cultural legacy by the use of anoxic fumigation treatment of art objects


What is CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE TREATMENT?

Utilizing argon, an inert gas, anoxic fumigation, or controlled atmosphere treatment, as it is scientifically know, is a proven method of removing biopredation. It is safe and non-toxic to humans, leaves no residue, and is harmless to most art objects. Wooden objects such as furniture and panel paintings are excellent candidates for this approach, as well as textiles such as costumes, embroideries, tapestries, rugs, and carpets. Natural history collections or taxidermy models can also be treated with this method. Treatments last approximately six weeks and objects large or small, or whole collections can be treated onsite or in our facility.

We have successfully treated:

  • contemporary and period paintings and their frames

  • historic textiles

Anoxic fumigation is but one technique of

an integrated pest management strategy.
