Stained glass preservation is a major priority for many Denver churches. Stained glass is often beloved by congregation members, showcasing inspiring imagery that’s sacred for the worship experience. Stained glass can be treasured for centuries, offering the same inspiring message for many generations to come. In order to continue the tradition down the line, it’s vital to administer proper cleaning and strengthening for your religious stained glass pieces.
Proper Cleaning and Strengthening for Denver Church Stained Glass
In order to prolong your stained glass‘ life as well as prolong periods of time between required restoration, proper cleaning and strengthening is vital. Consistent, weekly cleanings ensure that your stained glass won’t experience overexposure to moisture. Moisture is unfortunately the leading cause of deterioration, often times leading to fungal growth which drastically accelerates the deterioration process. Moisture is unavoidable but making sure your stained glass doesn’t have moisture building up between all the crevices and pockets is significant to preventing deterioration. Many stained glass windows in Denver churches have reinforcements built in– it’s important to make sure these are effective and not causing further deterioration. Proper strengthening of stained glass leads to better durability and product life.
