Laser Cleaning Service

Lynton Conservation offers a laser cleaning service whereby we carry out laser cleaning work on behalf of, and under the overall direction of, the client. This service is suitable for test cleaning or relatively small-scale cleaning work where the client does not feel able to undertake the cleaning work themselves. Please contact us for further information.

Health and Safety

The management of health and safety is an important aspect of all conservation treatments, including laser cleaning. Awareness of the hazards of the cleaning process and compliance with the controls put in place to minimise risk ensures conservators are able to work safely and effectively. A suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk should always be carried out before laser cleaning is undertaken.

The European Directive 2006/25/EC – Artificial Optical Radiation came into force in 2006 and was implemented in the UK as the Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010. This legislation lays down the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to risks arising from artificial optical radiation.

The IEC technical report IEC TR 60825-14: 2022 – Safety of Laser Products – Part 14: A User’s Guide provides guidance on best practices in the safe use of laser products which conform to IEC 60825 – 1. Lynton Conservation is able to advise on safe working with laser cleaning systems – please contact us for further information.

Servicing

Technical support is provided by our team of skilled engineers. All of our products are covered by a 12 month warranty. Subsequent years can be covered by service contracts which are tailored to meet the needs of individual customers ranging from full cover, which would include one preventative maintenance visit, two call-out visits, travel expenses (within the UK), labour and non-consumable parts, to call-out only cover.
