Smoke Damaged Clothing
Did you know trying to wash a fire or smoke damaged article of clothing/fabric on your own will only further damage the material? Spring Cleaners recommend that you do not put any smoke damaged fabrics in the dryer because the heat will make the odor stronger and more resilient to even the most professional techniques.
Water Damaged Clothing
Time is very much of the essence, when it comes to your Westwood water damage stain removal. If a pipe burst and spewed water all over your curtains and clothing or your home experienced a flood, and water seeped into your closets; be sure to send us those fabrics as soon as possible.
Our expert team of cleaners will be more successful if the garments have not had the time to fully absorb stains. Watermarks become increasingly tough to remove with every passing second. The success rate relies heavily on the type of water culprit behind the mess.
Types of Water Damage
There are three distinct kinds of water damage:
- White water: White water refers to clean or fresh water that is uncontaminated. It can be found in your home. It is the stuff you shower, wash your face and cook with. There are no microorganisms living in white water, which means bacteria is unlikely to form and build up. However, watermark stains do get worse over time so it’s best to take care of the issue straight away.
- Gray water: This refers to clean ‘waste’ water, meaning it has been used by an appliance. It can be found in your dishwasher, washing machine, bath and pipes. Reusable uncontaminated non-fecal water fall under this category. Gray water carries traces of dirt and organisms. Anything stained by gray water needs to be cleaned instantly, before it turns to black water and ruins the fabric.
- Black water: Any kind of sewage, septic, lake, river or ocean water is considered black water because it contains a slew of microorganisms which can create bacteria and mold. Clothing that has been touched by black water needs to be professionally cleaned so as to prevent any type of mold, mildew and odor from forming.
