Some of the items that are dearest to us can be the most challenging losses after a fire or flood. These may include sentimental items of clothing, blankets, purses or a child’s stuffed animal. Textiles and soft contents like these present a unique challenge during the restoration process. They can hold dirt and grime from the disaster, while also becoming a breeding ground for bacteria. A simple wash of these items will do little to get the item deep-cleaned, eliminating any concerns over lingering bacteria. Instead these soft contents should be specially cleaned and restored by a professional like Soil-Away.
