Uncontrolled moisture is a prevalent cause of deterioration in older and historic buildings. It leads to erosion, corrosion, rot and ultimately the destruction of materials, finishes and eventually structural components. Today's museums and archives are vital to the protection of our heritage and the development of our future. As technology and experience grow, we learn more about the damaging effects of improper environmental conditions on our precious collections. Ensuring the preservation and long-term safety of the collection is one of a museum's or archive's most challenging primary goals.This requires long term sampling and analysis of temperature, relative humidity and lighting level data to determine stability or to point out issues that need further attention and remediation. A well-planned and executed monitoring program that spans at least one full change of possible seasons is instrumental to ensuing success and providing the minimum data set required for analysis.
To implement a preservative conservation program allowing for a base line evaluation of environmental conditions, with ongoing periodic monitoring and review to identify pop up issues, that allows for the ability to take remediation measures before long-term and irreversible damage takes place to collections and/or structures. To give assurance to Curators, Directors, Board Members, Patrons and Loaning Museums that collections are well protected from Humidity and Temperature related environmental dangers.
Institutions face ever tightening budgets so verification systems must be affordable, but given the size and individual requirements between locations and even in each collection space within even one location, it is difficult to tailor a one size fits all solution that meets many requirements. The reality of limited manpower, a shortage of technical computer users and the cost for the dedication of assets further complicate the issue. LTi offers solutions that provide a Curator, Facilities or Engineering staff with information they can use to remediate both systemic and periodic conditions in a timely manner before damage can occur.
