You can do one or the other, or both.

Look for the information found on the

Dust and spotting

section of the start page.

Do you refer to pre-exposure spots or spots white spots on the print?

I used to get a lot of dust spots on film until I bought a HEPA air filter. I load my film in a small room with no windows. Prior to loading I will wipe down the floors & counter space with a damp cloth & then run the filter for 20 minutes. While the filter is on I will use a blow brush to clean each film holder. I then load the film. Can't remember the last time I had a dust problem. For me it is a thing of the past.
