Historic preservation is generally regarded as the practice of protecting or preserving sites, buildings, structures, and more. These sites are significant to our history. This history is important because it connects us to specific times, places and events that were significant milestones in our collective past. This is the blueprint of our lives as we know them today.
The ability to revisit these preserved elements from time to time provides us with a sense of place, and maintains continuity between our past and our present by preserving a trail of how we arrived at where, and who we are today. There are many instances in which the value of historic preservation should be seriously considered.
As communities, towns and cities develop comprehensive plans for growth and development, districts and specific buildings or areas with historical significance can be identified as elements that should be protected.
To avoid inappropriate renovations and cleaning practices that destroy the historical character of the property, historic preservation guidelines should be in place. Historic preservation projects are also encouraged on the state and federal levels through grants as well as tax incentives in the form of credits, deductions and abatements. Liquid Shine is familiar with many of these historical guidelines. We have a dedicated team that will be sure to research, identify, and determine cleaning methods that satisfy the historical standards while maintaining the site integrity.
