Dirt and Grime

Often the image of an artwork is completely hidden beneath a dark layer, which is simply the accumulation of years of everyday life. Fossil fuel emissions, pollution, tobacco smoke, dirt, dust and grime can transform what was once a vibrant and colorful image into one that is dark, dull and spatially flat. Proper cleaning brings the artwork back to what the artist intended us to see.
