This is a topic that I don't think I've seen discussed often. Alot of record cleaning machines come with a vac to suck up liquid and/or particles on the record surface. It's seems like a good method of cleaning loose particles. The only issues I can think of would be removing films of oil/contaminants, etc. If the record left the factory with some film from the pressing process, which many are said to have, then you would need some more aggressive cleaning such as ultrasonic. The only other problem would be the fact that the particles are blown into the air and can fall back down onto surfaces. I have been using a computer duster for quick cleaning of dust but it's not perfect if you have a static cling because the particles stick like glue. Anyone else use compressed air?
