5 Practical Tips on Caring For Your Canvas Wall Art
So you've bought a new canvas wall art piece...
But now you want to make sure it lasts for a long-time, ideally a lifetime. Often the idea of having to maintain your wall art can be daunting, so here's 5 practical tips on how to take care of and maintain your new piece of canvas wall art.
Tip #1: Don't use chemical-based cleaners on the canvas
Do not in any way, use chemicals or even water to treat your canvases. Moisture is an enemy to canvas wall art, and will cause fading and imperfections that are permanent and irreversible.
If necessary to clean, we recommend to first consult a professional cleaning specialist for advice on cleaning your canvas wall art.
Tip #2: Avoid long exposure to sunlight
The harsh UV rays in sunlight can impose permanent damage, most notably bleaching & fading on the colors of the canvas print art. Try instead to use artificial lighting and keep the art-piece in shadier areas of a room where possible.
Tip #3: Avoid water exposure
Like mentioned previous, moisture and canvas art do not mix well. This is because excess moisture on the fabrics of the canvas can increase the risk of mildew and mold growing on the art, destroying the colors and display of the art-piece.
It is also recommended to research ways to reduce humidity in the air of your specific rooms where canvas art will go to ensure that it lasts for a long time.
Tip #4: Dust regularly
It is inevitable that dust will accumulate on your canvas art eventually. Dust isn't exactly a threatening issue, though it can de-saturate colors and make the canvas piece overall less pleasing as it accumulates over time.
We warn against wiping with towels against the sensitive canvas surface, but instead recommend that you use a brush of some sorts, or at least a soft micro-fiber cloth (don't use sprays of any kind, even water) to clean the surface safely.
Tip #5: Ensure the canvas is mounted securely
While our company include strong mounting kits with our canvases, many other providers may skimp out on providing mounting systems that stand the test of time.
For smaller and lighter canvases, mounting quality may not be too much of an issue, but the real concern arises when dealing with larger canvas prints. The last thing you want to happen is for your canvas to fall and take permanent damage.
To avoid any issues, we suggest you research strong mounting gear for your canvas art piece to make sure it lasts for decades to come.
