The location of archives in an appropriate environment is crucial for their adequate preservation.

There are many studies which identify environmental pollution as the principal problem in the conservation of historical objects. Acidic gasses such as sulphuric acid, nitrogen and carbon are the most common contaminants as these acidify archived materials, accelerating their deterioration.

Dust has hygroscopic properties which increase humidity in the material causing stains and other damage.
