Simple Things One Can Do To Store Their Heirloom Photographs Life-Long!

Photographs capture the loved moments to be cherished by future generations. Such is the role of heirloom photographs. And it goes without saying that storing these photographs is critical. Here are 3 simple things you can do to store your heirloom photographs.

Handle your photos carefully and safely
Ever mulled as to why archivists wear white gloves while handling photos? Human hands ooze out oils and salts which can spoil photographs. Cotton gloves are simple and inexpensive solution to prevent any damage while handling or storing photographs.

If you still cannot withstand gloves, then wash your hands with soap prior to handling photographs. Avoid applying any kind of lotion on hands until you are done with the photographs.

What is the ideal place to store photographs?
Instead of a long mundane discourse on temperature and relative humidity, I will cut to the chase. You want to store your photos in a place that is not too warm, not too cold, not too damp, and not too dry; just like Goldilocks. Attics and basements have risks of high humidity and floods, both of which can destroy photographs permanently.

So, what’s the right spot? An interior closet in a house that’s cooled in summer and heated in winter is a safe bet. Guest bedrooms and linen closets under stairs also work brilliant. Under the bed is a great storage location for photographs, as long as you are not putting them next to a heating vent.

Last but not the least, if you want to be 100% sure of the safety of your photographs without any worries, Dustore offers tailor made storage solutions.
