          The Silver Restoration Team of Mumford Restoration specializes in bringing tarnished, dull silver back to its original shine and luster. Although many items just need expert cleaning and polishing, there are some that need silver plating or to be re-silvered, often referred to as re-silvering, silver re-plating, silver dipping, and silver plating. We provide these services along with tips on cleaning and storing your valuable pieces. If you plan on displaying your silver pieces and not use them for eating or drinking, we can lacquer them to prevent further tarnishing.

          If you have a special event where your sterling silver flatware needs to really shine, we can help by providing flatware polishing, flatware buffing, and flatware cleaning to remove the minor scratches. As a result, your pieces will look brand new!

          Don’t hide those finer sterling silver- or silver-plated pieces that have been damaged! Our silver restoration craftsmen can bring them back to their original grandeur. Even silverware damaged by a garbage disposal can be repaired and polished. And the good news is—it usually can be done for less than the cost to replace it!

          That’s a question we get often. The surest way to know is an evaluation by one of our Restoration Consultants. We’ll assess each piece to determine whether it’s solid silver or plated silver. If plated, we’ll assess the strength and thickness of the plating to determine if polishing will render the result you want or if re-plating might provide an outcome that meets your goals.
