Tips for cleaning your photo canvas
A canvas print is a photo printed onto a canvas fabric, which is then mounted onto a stretcher frame. The print on the canvas is splash-proof and fade-proof for up to 75 years. Once the canvas is hung on the wall, an occasional dusting of the frame should be enough to take care of your photo canvas.
If your canvas gets soiled, you can remove the dirt with a damp cloth. But you can do the wrong thing here.
- Make sure you don’t use any rough cleaning aids because this can lead to unsightly scratches in the print.
- Avoid rubbing with pressure. This can remove colour from the print, damaging the image.
- Do not use any cleaning agents or solvents. These will immediately damage the print and destroy your photo canvas.
Did you know? Avoid direct sunlight when hanging your canvas photo. Only by this the colours will last up to 200 years.
