Cleaning Mouldy VHS & Camcorder Tapes

Transfer Mould on Tape Cleaning Service for Videotapes

At Supaphoto, we specialise in the restoration and rejuvenation of VHS and other videotapes afflicted by insidious mould growth. Video Machines are just designed to play them and they will do more damage than good. 

Do you happen to have VHS cassettes that have languished in the confines of a basement, attic, or garage? Perhaps you’ve noticed the emergence of white fuzz on the tape reels. Whenever humidity infiltrates videotapes, mould is a relentless companion. Mould often obstructs the seamless playback of videos. Our VHS mould removal and cleaning service steps in to meticulously cleanse and eliminate mould and mildew from your VHS tapes, ensuring they can once again grace your screen. Following this restoration, we can then proceed with the conversion of your tapes into a different, more accessible format.

It’s important to note that mould can also inflict harm upon the internal components of your VCR and Video Machine. Once these mould spores infiltrate your machine, they may migrate to other tapes, exacerbating the problem. For this reason, tapes affected by mould must undergo cleansing prior to conversion. Most video conversion companies shy away from tapes with mould issues, typically returning them unconverted. If your tapes have been rejected by other transfer services, entrust Recapture for a comprehensive cleaning. After this cleansing process, we can proceed to convert your tapes into the format of your choice. Your original tapes will be diligently cleaned and restored, and if desired, new discs will accompany them.

Avoid disregarding VHS cassettes bearing mould or other forms of damage. Over time, the situation is bound to deteriorate. The cherished memories encapsulated within your VHS cassettes could potentially be lost forever. Our proficient team possesses the expertise to disassemble various types of cassettes, including VHS, and knows how to effectively cleanse tapes and eliminate mould. Rely on our VHS mould removal and cleaning service to salvage your invaluable videotapes and the treasured memories they encapsulate.

Here are four compelling reasons to choose our VHS Mould Removal and Cleaning service:

We have spent 000’s designing our machine to remove the mould slowly and safely. It’s a multi-stage process.
