Fabric Objects with Mold Damage
Mold Damage on Objects with Fabric
In many of the worst mold damage cases SERVPRO comes across in the field, mold contamination spreads from its spot in the home to personal belongings and objects elsewhere in the building. These objects can range in size and function from clothing to furniture to cloth items such as tablecloths and curtains, but almost always contain some amount of wood or fabric on which the mold feeds. Between our in-house cleaning techniques and equipment and our vetted list of certified contractors, we can provide adequate mold treatment for anything in your home that may have been contaminated by mold.
For most clothing items, we apply bulk treatments to be able to focus our attention on more time-intensive aspects of mold damage in Boulder. Clothing is typically first dried out and sanitized to kill any mold growing on it, then put through one of our high-powered industrial washing machines to thoroughly clean and further sanitize the material. More delicate clothing such as expensive dresses and suits may instead by hand-washed and treated by our technicians or sent off to a contractor for processing.
Curtains, Drapes, and Table Cloths
These large fabric items are often quick to develop mold and may sometimes be the origin of a mold problem in the home. Depending on their size, material, and value, these may receive similar treatment to clothing, being sent through a bulk wash and sanitization routine. However, these are more often gone through by hand as they may require more intensive treatments or greater care than other fabrics.
Furniture and upholstery can grow mold both inside and out, and especially in between cushions. SERVPRO inspectors pay careful attention to the spaces in between cushions and undersides of furniture as these are highly liable to develop mold growth. Furniture is harder to clean than other objects, usually requiring hand-applied washing or dry cleaning and sanitization unless it can be fully separated and collapsed into a washable form.
