You should hang your artwork in locations that offer protection from the damaging effects of heat, moisture, and light. Hang your artwork out of the line of direct sunlight. In sunny environments or in areas that are lit with fluorescent lighting, using UV acrylic or glass will minimize the effects of harmful ultraviolet rays. You should also never hang your valuable artwork over a heat source, or in an area that will be high in humidity such as a steamy bathroom. Heat and humidity can cause serious damage to your art. Clean the surface regularly with the proper cleaner. Spray the appropriate cleaner on a soft cloth first not the surface of the framed piece, to avoid pooling and damage to the frame, mat, and art.
