Preserve and Protect Fine Art with Space Savers’ Climate-Controlled Storage Units

Fine art preservation and protection are essential aspects of maintaining the quality and integrity of valuable pieces. In this blog post, we will explore the challenges faced by art collectors, curators, and enthusiasts when it comes to storing and preserving their collections. We will discuss the benefits of utilizing the advanced, temperature and humidity-controlled storage solutions provided by Space Savers, along with the flexibility and convenience of their month-to-month leasing options.

The Significance of Proper Fine Art Storage and Preservation

Art owners, whether they are collectors, curators, or enthusiasts, understand that proper storage conditions are essential for preserving the quality and longevity of their valuable pieces. Key factors that can impact the condition of fine art include:

1. Temperature: Fluctuations in temperature can cause expansion and contraction in the materials used in the artwork, leading to warping, cracking, or fading. Ideal storage temperature for most fine art pieces is between 60-75°F (15-24°C), with minimal fluctuations.

2. Humidity: High humidity levels can lead to mold and mildew growth, while low humidity can cause brittleness and cracking of materials. An ideal relative humidity range for fine art storage is between 40-50%.

3. Light exposure: Prolonged exposure to strong light, especially ultraviolet (UV) light, can cause fading, discoloration, and other forms of damage to artwork. It is essential to minimize direct light exposure and use UV-protective glass or filters to preserve color and detail.

4. Positioning and handling: Proper positioning and handling of fine art pieces are essential for preventing damages such as bends, creases, and tears. It is crucial to store artwork in a stable position, either vertically with separators or framed and hung on a wall.
