Troubled With Damaged Photos? Check Out Some Storage Hacks

Do you know why your treasured photos get damaged? The most viable reason is the lack of proper storage methods. A shoebox or any other ordinary box isn’t an appropriate storage house for your photos.

The precious the photo, the more vulnerable it is:
Photos are primarily delicate. The older and more precious they are, the easily they get damaged when not stored carefully.

Safe Storage Hacks:
Archival sleeves:

Stocking up your photos and albums with archival sleeves protects your photos from elements like heat, light, bug infestations, water flow and fingerprints which have damaging effects on photos.

Acid-free photo storage boxes:

Stock up your albums in an acid-resistant photo storage box to make your photos chemical resistant.
Tip- Store your photos in the box after packing them in archival sleeves. It will secure your photos and albums against all harsh elements.

Precautionary measures to remember:
Using photographic paper or a mounting board can prove to be lethal sometimes due to their acidic content. It can cause long-term damage to delicate films and photographs.
Prior to storing photos in an acid-free box, don’t forget to remove items like paper clips, manila envelopes and anything which gives odor.
Troubled over long-term finger marks on photos? Wear cotton gloves during photograph handling.
