We all have precious items and mementos that we would be heartbroken if we were to lose or see them damaged beyond repair. Photos, Heirlooms, Antiques and Collectibles, all often go beyond financial value in their value to us.
So here to encourage us that we don’t need to throw away all of these items following the floods is Lydia Egunnike, Museum Development Officer for Southern Inland Queensland with Queensland Museum. Also an expert conservator, I got to catch up with her about salvaging those much loved items that are priceless. Here’s that interview here.
She’s also written a great blog and provides resources you can use when dealing with flood and mould damaged collections.
