What factors cause damage to art, photographs and other personal keepsakes?

  • All light sources emit harmful UV light rays. Sunlight and indoor lighting, such as fluorescent and tungsten, contain different amounts of UV energy that can cause irreversible UV light damage. Colours may fade and shift and the materials that make up the piece may become brittle or yellow
  • UV protection reduces fading and other damage caused by UV light over time
  • All light, not just UV light, can be damaging. Heat, pollution, moisture, the materials that make up the piece, as well as poor quality framing materials, are all contributing factors
