Initial Consultation Begins Here
Please read (I will still explain this in the initial free consultation even if you said you read it, because it is important to understand, and we often need to hear or read something more than once before we really grasp it).
Professionally, there are quite distinct differences between all three: Preservation, Restoration, and Conservation by a professional conservator.
Preservation: applying principles, environments and agents to the material to mitigate further decomposition. Nothing can be guaranteed to be preserved forever. But this step is often the best, the most practical, and the least costly step to preserving your structures, equipment, antique tools, heirlooms, archival records, books, artifacts, etc.
Restoration: in the profession, this means to restore the object or structure to its original condition. This often entails much more and is often much more costly
Conservation: There is an overlap in meaning, generally speaking and in literature or discussions for the wider public, with the terms “preservation” and “conservation,” but professionally, it is conservators who are scientists who do conservation services.
Pal, while working for the state of Florida, was consulted by the state’s Bureau of Cultural Affairs conservator on a mill restoration project and latter got acquainted with how the state’s conservator conserved several Spanish canons and other implements excavated from the beaches and off the coast of Florida in the 1970’s. Though he possesses this knowledge to this day, he is still not qualified to do conservation services and will make no claim to do so (and who does not possess the costly equipment).
