Helpful Storing Artwork Tips

artwork storing
Once you’ve invested in artwork, you want to be sure it will be protected no matter what life throws your way. When you plan to store your art for any reason, you’ll want to carefully choose a facility with storage to create the optimal conditions for your treasures. In addition to keeping the unit at a steady, neutral temperature, you’ll want to be sure that it stays dry and free from dust and debris. Sutters Fort Self-Storage LLC in Santa Cruz offers the conditions you need, as well as helpful organizing and storing artwork tips and tricks.   

Tips for Storing and Protecting Your Valuable Treasures

We understand that many art lovers don’t have the space to showcase all of their work at once. Use the following guide and self-storage tips to keep your paintings, sculptures and other pieces safer:
  • Clean and prepare any pieces before stowing them away. This may include dusting painted surfaces or polishing wooden components.
  • Protect the integrity of frames with cardboard corners.
  • Sandwich paintings, portraits and other framed pieces between cardboard and wrap in plastic for waterproofing.
  • Safeguard statues and other 3-D pieces by choosing sturdy boxes and adding plenty of padding.
  • Avoid direct heat and sunlight.
  • Prevent moisture damage by keeping boxes off of and away from cement floors and walls.
