The book cleaning machine is an ideal workstation for the dust cleaning and restoration of sensitive materials in a sealed chamber. With a pair of protective gloves and sleeves with which you can handle volumes, the book cleaning equipment can provide a safe environment for the conservator, protecting against dangerous mold spores and pathogens, when cleaning inside and outside fragile and delicate rare books and manuscripts. Connecting to a large capacity HEPA vacuum cleaner can filter out dust particles of 0.3 μm and with very good air tightness, the book wash machine can ensure the safety of the librarian while cleaning ancient books. It’s widely used in museums and galleries.
Several technics and tools(With special gloves and conservation brushes of different types and sizes and manually controlled air flow for well conservation material or a soft brushes for the fragile material, which makes it possible for delicate restoration) are used for the cleaning of the material based on the condition of repair of the volumes, binding type or dust quantity.

Do We Really Need A Book Cleaning Machine?
The dust today is not a problem of appearance, but a problem of health. Dust particulates are one of the most harmful matters that you can inhale. In the case of books there are two important points:
-The surfaces of papers act as a magnet of dust particulates. The three sides of books act as a preserve of dust particulate as long as they are not cleaned.
-When you open a dusty book, dust particulates deposited on three sides of books are removed and are pushed up with the resulting air current directly into your nose.
When we consider carefully existing information in the literature related to corresponding risk areas, it’s the librarians who work with dusty books are in real health danger. The risk is ranging from lung cancer and heart attack to chronic asthma, allergy problems, depression, nervous problem, esthetic’s problems of skin etc. They should consider as workers at high risk and protected by law. The existing standards are not enough to protect the librarians and new studies should be done to create new standards.
Public libraries should take responsibility to clean up dusty books before lending them to their clients.nd the world.
