Libraries, Museums, Historical Archives and Archival Centers
Careful removal of dust and dirt from books and documents, using appropriate procedures, equipment and instruments.
Types of cleaning
We present two types of cleaning that differ in the scope of tasks included in the procedure:
Standard type: current hygienisation of archives – cleaning the exteriors of books
and bundles of books.
Conservation type: recuperation hygienisation – sheet-by-sheet cleaning,
removal of oxidised metallic objects, replacement of supports.
