Conservation treatment

After all the measures stipulated above are implemented effectively, the useful life of the archival materials will be prolonged. For archival materials that have already been in the deteriorated or damaged state, the preventive effort should guarantee that the need for conservation treatment is delayed until relevant services are available. Professional advice should be sought from specialist conservators who can provide assessment of the deterioration condition of the items and prioritise the treatment according to the overall urgency after a holistic consideration.
