Museums and Historic Storage
In preservation environments, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is a primary concern. The pollution levels in this indoor air can be up to five times higher than outdoor levels, and in some cases 100 times higher. Controlling airborne pollutants and gaseous contaminants is fundamental to protecting priceless collections of artifacts, national historical assets and documents, artwork, and literature.
Damage to Artifacts and Artwork Can Be Caused by:
- Uncontrolled temperature
- Relative humidity
- Dust and dirt
- Gaseous pollutants, such as ozone and sulfur dioxide
Protecting Precious and Priceless Objects
Temperature and humidity, if not controlled properly, speed up the rate of chemical reactions that cause deterioration of sensitive objects. Dust and dirt contamination cause artifacts to discolor. Gaseous pollutants may cause significant and irreversible deterioration of artifacts, metals, historic records, photographs, and marble, through chemical reactions. Poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can also have adverse health effects on employees and visitors.
