Film Cleaning & Preservation for

Super8, 8mm, 9.5mm & 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 emultion away loosing the precious images that are stored there.

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 actual films. 

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 .

We 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.
