Is It Possible to Restore Clothes That Have Been Affected by Mold?

Be careful! Without proper training, you could be spreading mold throughout your home. Call SERVPRO of Clifton - 973-928-3705

Foremost, any garment or fabric that has not suffered physical deterioration or discoloration as a result of mold growing on it, and that is washable (typically, a minimum of 130degrees for at least 10 minutes), can be restored completely. That foes for bacterial contamination as well, as evidence by hospitals daily as they wash linens, gowns, surgical drapes, etc.

Dry cleaning also does a good job when evaluated and cleaned- often twice - by a qualified professional.  Again, this assumes no deterioration or discoloration of the garment.  Ultimately, sampling and evaluation by a qualified environmental professional can be used to confirm remediation of the garment. 

Why Use a Certified Technician?

Professional restoration technicians understand the need for quick response.  Immediate remediation is key to controlling and escalating costs.  The longer the remediation is delayed, the higher the cost of restoration.  Certified restorers have the knowledge to test materials and apply restoration techniques required to return the items to their preloss condition.
