Esporta Wash System

What do you do with clothing that was exposed to mold in your home?  Assuming your loss falls within the standards and written protocol they can be cleaned.   The method per the IICRC S520 standards is by laundry only. 


So I have some good news and some concerning news about the process.  Good news is we have a very specialized machine designed to clean contaminated textiles to a food grad clean.  It call Esporta Wash Systems.  This machine is capable of cleaning just about anything we can load into it.


It can clean sporting equipment such as football gear as well as leather.  We have cleaned lots of leather jackets and more shoes than I care to count. 


Not only does it clean to the food grade clean we can often remove spots that you were unable to remove in prior cleanings. 


So what is the bad news you ask.  Due the standard method for mold is laundry only some dry clean items don't always survive.  The wetting of the garment is usually not the challenge.  It usually has to do with shrinkage, bleeding or being very delicate, such as lace or sequins. 


Don't fear our overall success rate of cleaning soft goods and textiles is about 98%.  SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Central Austin, we not only can handle your mold remediation project we can clean you cloth and content too.
