            Mumford Restoration specializes in keeping your treasured memories alive through the preservation of your antiques, heirlooms, and furniture. But what do we mean when we use the term preservation? Allow us to explain.

            Antique Preservation Defined


            Preservation, as defined by Merriam-Webster is, “the activity or process of keeping something valued alive, intact, or free from damage or decay.” In other words when you have a Louis XV piece, you don’t refinish it, perhaps don’t even restore it. Focus on preserving, protecting, cleaning, and minor repairs, as you would a fine art piece that is meant to last for centuries.

            We’ve said this before but it bears saying again and again—even at the risk of redundancy because it is critical to the longevity of your family treasures:

            Don’t trust your precious pieces with just anyone who claims to restore.
