Framed Perfection: How to Keep Your Picture Frames Looking Their Best

Caring for your picture frame is essential to ensure it remains in good condition and your artwork or photograph is displayed beautifully. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to care for your picture frame:

Example picture frames

Where to Avoid Placing Frames:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause fading and damage to both the frame and the artwork inside. Keep your frame out of direct sunlight or use UV-protective glass to minimize the harmful effects of UV rays.
  • Avoid Heat Sources: Placing your frame directly above radiators, heaters, or other heat sources can cause warping and damage to the frame and ripping of the artwork, Keep it away from these sources to maintain its shape and integrity.
  • Stable Temperature and Humidity: Avoid rooms that experience rapid temperature and humidity fluctuations, as these can cause the frame and its contents to expand and contract, potentially leading to damage over time.

Hanging the frame:

  • Secure Wall Attachment: Ensure that your frame is attached to the wall securely to prevent accidents or damage. Use strong hanging fixings, such as wall anchors or picture hooks rated for the weight of your frame.
  • Alternatively, consider using a hanging system designed for frames, which provides stability and ease of adjustment.

Cleaning and Maintenance:

  • Touch Up Damage: If you notice chips or scratches on the frame’s surface, consider using a touch-up pen or paint to hide the obvious damage. Match the colour of the frame as closely as possible for a seamless repair.

Expert Tips: How to Clean Picture Framing Glass for Optimal Clarity and Protection

For maintaining the clarity and cleanliness of specialised picture framing glass, we recommend using picture framing glass cleaner. It’s important to avoid regular glass cleaner as they can contain harsh chemicals or abrasive substances that may potentially damage the protective coating on the glass surface which provides its anti-reflective and UV-protective properties.

When dealing with Artglass anti-reflective coatings, opt for an ammonia-free glass cleaner along with a soft microfiber cloth for optimal results. Before commencing the cleaning process, ensure that the cloth is free of any dust or particles that could potentially cause scratches on the glass coating.

Here are some of the products our professional team use:

Instructions for cleaning picture frame glass:

Begin by spraying a small amount of glass cleaner directly onto the microfiber cloth. Gently clean the glass using circular motions. Afterward, polish the cleaned glass using a dry section of the cloth. It’s important to avoid excessive rubbing of the glass surface, as any inadvertent hard particles within the cloth could potentially damage the anti-reflective coating.

Handling and Transporting Frames:

  • Handling: When moving the frame, especially if it’s large or heavy, use two hands to support it. Enlist the help of another person if necessary. Most accidents involving frames happen during transportation, so take extra care to avoid bumps or falls.
  • Transporting: When moving a frame longer distances it’s best to package it with a little extra support. This can be achieved with protective corners and handy wrap. Click here to see a step-by-step guide on how to effectively package your frame. As an alternative to these items you can simply use bubble wrap and cardboard.

Tips when transporting multiple frames: Be sure to stack your frames face to face or back to back to avoid the fixings scratching the front of a frame.
