HOW TO RESCUE HURRICANE AND WATER DAMAGED ARTWORK: A PRACTICAL GUIDE

BOCA RATON, FL, November 2, 2005 --/WORLD-WIRE/--
In the wake of the recent series of hurricane strikes in Florida and South-East USA, ConservArt, Inc. has published a list of detailed directions on how to save damaged works of art. No special knowledge, or equipment is required and the tips can help save much irreplaceable artwork if performed without delay.

"Simple but specific information about what can and should be done with artwork and collectibles following a flood or other disaster is very difficult to find," said George Schwartz, Director and Senior Conservator at ConservArt. "People are overwhelmed by many pressing issues and wrongly assume that there is nothing that they themselves can do to save their belongings."

"For emergency salvage information to be useful, it must be specific, simple to follow and should not call for exotic equipment, materials, or processes," Schwartz continued. "The ready availability of clear and detailed directions will empower people to take those crucial steps immediately, instead of waiting until itís too late," he concluded.

By having detailed information, homeowners can overcome the natural concern and try to save their valuables. Early action will lead to preserving many more irreplaceable works of art, family photographs and collectibles and help prevent further deterioration caused by water and mildew.

The suggestions contained in ConservArtís Guide http://www.conservart.com/911Emergencysalvage.html will greatly benefit caretakers of collections, owners of damaged valuables as well as Insurance Companies and result in the survival of more precious belongings, while reducing claims.
