Mould Remediation

Unfortunately sometimes material can become mouldy. This might be because they were in the path of a leak or flood, and/or kept in an unsuitable environment which nurtured mould growth over time.

It is very important that mould is dealt with quickly and safely. It poses both a risk of loss to the item, but should also be taken seriously as a health hazard to those handling and accessing this material.

Max Communications and the RSA Archive have a successful, long standing working relationship. We have undertaken several digitisation projects together to scan our numerous large sized artworks, prints and diagrams. More recently we successfully migrated to Max’s archive management and digital preservation services, DRYAD and SOTERIA. I cannot fault either the consistent quality of the digitisation or the quality of professional service provided and would recommend, Max Communications, without reservation.
