Decontamination of biocide-contaminated collections and objects

Many museums and collections around the world are having serious issues

Especially from the beginning of the last century until the 1990s, objects in museums and collections were treated with a variety of biocides and insecticides, either preventively or to control active infestations by insects or fungi. Only later were most of these toxins recognized as carcinogenic, germ cell mutagenic, or reproductive toxicants (CMRs).

Today, curators, conservators, custodians, art shippers, as well as archivists and librarians, are exposed to the hazardous health effects of these biocides. Of course, museum visitors may also be exposed. The number of affected objects in Germany alone runs into the millions. Large parts of collections have to be literally locked away because of the dangers they pose. Some storage rooms may now only be entered under full protection and breathing masks. Museum employees have already fallen ill in connection with biocide exposure in the workplace.
