How the collections were cared for:
Staff followed guidelines provided by Service Master, the company employed to restore and clean the Grant Wood AEA building.

  • All materials were boxed and moved to the Conference Center immediately following the flood.
  • When the boxes were opened, staff used a special vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to clean the top of the box.
  • The top of each box was then wiped down with a sanitizing solution.
  • As materials were taken out of the boxes, each package was cleaned with a sanitizing solution prior to being placed on the shelf. Materials that were not in a bag were cleaned and shelved.
