Whether it is a fire, flood or another event that caused property damage, artwork is often overlooked or an afterthought, according to Tim Swett, president and owner of Art Recovery Technologies (ART) of Tampa and Orlando in Florida, who says the biggest challenge facing art restoration services is a lack of awareness.

“When I’m talking to someone, the common response is ‘we don’t see much artwork,’” Swett says. “That’s funny to me because I see artwork everywhere. It might be a painting, work on paper, something original, a limited-edition print, glass art, a sculpture or taxidermy. A lot of people collect pretty extensively.”
