Restoring Damaged Textiles

When disasters strike a household, so many aspects of the lives of the inhabitants are affected.  Not only has the physical structure of the home suffered damage that must be repaired, but the valuables inside have also been affected.  We realize it isn’t the walls of a house that make it a home, but the items lovingly placed inside those walls.  

Damage from fire, water, or mold can cost you a lifetime’s accumulation of household items.  If your home has been struck by a disaster, don’t just throw out all of your prized possessions!  Items like appliances and electronics, and even textiles can be professionally cleaned and restored. 

Replace or Repair?

Some household items can be easily replaced after a disaster.  The ruined sheet set you’ve owned for several years that you didn’t like very much to begin with can easily become a distant memory after a quick trip to your local Target.  But what about your child’s favorite teddy bear? What about the quilt your late grandmother stitched by hand?    

Saving textiles after damage from soot, smoke, water, and mold is what we do.  So what types of textiles can be cleaned and restored? More than just your drapes, that’s for sure. 

What is a Textile?

Simply put, a textile is an item made of fabric.  Many items that fall under this category are tossed after a disaster.  Stop! Many of these priceless can be salvaged by a professional cleaning and restoration such as:

Wedding dresses
Curtains and draperies
Military uniforms
Leather coats
Shoes and boots
Purses, handbags, and luggage
Flags and banners
Stuffed animals and dolls

Athletic uniforms
Quilts, blankets, and other bedding
Baptismal gowns
Sports memorabilia
Hunting gear
