About Photo Cleaning Services
Photo cleaning services are an essential precursor to picture scanning. Photo cleaning removes a variety of particles and dirt that can obscure your images. In order to get the highest quality scans, DpsDave’s technicians work hard to remove years of film from nicotine, dust, pollution, and debris coating your pictures.
How many times have you attended an event where old family photos were shared? Did you notice images appeared to be out of focus and discolored? Years of buildup can distort an image and distract from the content of the photo.
Modern day photography is constantly improving and adapting. Unfortunately, early images can’t adapt with technology without a little help. Although it may be easy to share modern day photos on a variety of electronics devices thanks to a photo scanning service, it takes some preparatory work to bring older images up to par.
Photo cleaning provides the necessary preparation for picture scanning services. Whether sharing with family, community, or even for scholarly purposes, picture cleaning is a necessary step. Clean images provide important details that may otherwise be missed.
Picture cleaning services cannot only restore your old photographs; they provide the necessary maintenance we often forget to perform on our pictures. Don’t wait until it’s too late to clean your images. Instead, be proactive and remove dirt and dust before the debris can adhere to your photographs.
Picture cleaning is more successful when performed before the irreversible damage can take place. Think of a photo cleaning service as preventative maintenance for your priceless pictures. Have your photos cleaned and stored before it’s too late.
Allow DpsDave to restore your photos to their fullest potential. Photo cleaning is a vital step in the restoration process. Restoration can be a daunting, but you don’t have to take it on alone.

Why Not Do It Yourself?
The alternative to using DpsDave's services is the “Do It Yourself” option. You can easily find instructions for cleaning photos on the Internet. However, most DIY instructions include harmful solvents and mixtures that may damage the emulsion layer of your image, resulting in water spots and image deterioration.
DIY instructions may include a risky process of scrubbing and water. You risk washing away a portion of your image or possibly damaging the paper the photo was printed on. Avoid using water or untested solvents that may destroy your photo.
Using a DIY chemical mixture or technique is especially risky when the residue is made up of unknown substances. An unforeseen chemical reaction can destroy already fragile pictures. DpsDave’s air knife technique helps by removing dry particles prior to any soft wiping.
In addition to homemade mixes, various DIY instructions recommend using software programs alone for restoration. The problem with this method is the loss of pigment and detail when erasing flaws caused by physical dust or dirt.
Instead of using software alone, DpsDave actually attacks the physical debris on the photo. Don’t waste hours tediously removing the presences of dirt on a computer program. Instead, trust DpsDave to get to the source of the problem.
Don’t risk your priceless pictures to untested cleaning methods. You can trust DpsDave to safely and gently remove years of dirt and dust easily in a few simple steps. Our air knife and soft brush method is truly the best way to gently remove unnecessary particles and dirt.
