How to take care of your art

Taking good care of your framed or canvas art at home can ensure the artwork you love lasts for years. We’ve highlighted some great tips below, based on our customer’s frequently asked questions.

How do I clean framed art?

Before cleaning, remove the framed art from the wall and place on a flat stable surface.

Frame

The frame itself can be gently cleaned or dusted with a soft cloth or brush. Avoid using chemical cleaning products on your frame.

Glass

Glass can be wiped with a clean cloth and household glass cleaner. A good tip would be to spray the cleaning fluid on to the cloth rather than the glass itself to ensure no visible marks are left and fluid does not seep under the frame.

Perspex

To clean Perspex, wipe very gently using only a clean, damp and non-abrasive cloth. Use either water or a mild Perspex cleaner to dampen, again apply the fluid on to the cloth rather than the glazing itself.

How do I clean canvas art?

To prevent the build up of dust and having to do a more thorough clean it’s always advisable to dust your Canvas art regularly with a feather duster. Alternatively, use a soft dry cloth to gently clean. Avoid using a damp cloth when cleaning your Canvas art.

How do I pack my framed art for transporting?

  1. Find a cardboard box to fit the artwork within, making sure there’s enough room for the bubble wrapping too.
  2. Next, wrap your artwork up in bubble wrap. The corners of your artwork are most vulnerable, so ensure the corners are covered and protected well.
  3. In order to add extra protection and ensure the artwork is snug, place packing material within the box and place the wrapped artwork within.
  4. Finally, use brown tape to close and secure the box.
