Film Cleaning & Preservation for
Kodacolor Super8, 8mm & 16mm Film
It should be noted that
you should not try to physically clean any type of film as
due to their age the are often particularly
fragile. They should never, ever be physically cleaned as
you may scratch them or worse, wipe the surface away with whatever images
There is also surface chemical residue on
most films as
this was how they where developed in the first place and
this can react with any cleaning agents you try to use.
If your films have been stored in a cool, dry place like
the attic in a box or old biscuit tin then they will most likely
not need much cleaning. However, often films are stored in
damp basements or even worse outdoors in a garden shed which
can lead to the film becoming warped and unstable.
Either way, don't worry we know exactly how to care for
your film and to get the best possible image from them. 95%
of films we receive only need a light dusting with a blast
of air to remove dust and lint from the surface of your
films. We never alter your original films in any way as this
can actually damage fragile cine films. If films have been
exposed to damp we have special moisture absorbing
facilities to allow your films to be dried out before being
scanned, again without actually altering or touching your
Beware of any service offering to chemically clean your
films, you might loose what was on them for good if they are
inappropriately "lubricated" or "waxed"
Also as we digitally scan your films only air puffers needed
prior to the scan. If someone offers to
"lubricate" your films then they must be intending
to project your films on a normal cine projector and film it
with a camera, avoid this at all cost as the hot projection
lamp can harm or even burn your films.
The cost of film cleaning by air jets is included free of
charge with every transfer we do. We don't see this as an
optional extra to add cost on .
also provide scene by scene colour correction on the digital
master of your films, this corrects faded colours and unnatural
tints. Click here for further details.
Air is better!
