SERVPRO® Restores Clothing and Linens Affected by Fire Damage

Naples, FL, is a coastal gem renowned for its stunning beaches. Popular beach destinations include Via Miramar Beach and Moorings Beach Private Park, which offer pristine natural surroundings and excellent shelling opportunities. Naples provides a dining experience to suit every palate. Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South are bustling dining hubs where visitors can explore a variety of restaurants, including Barbatella, Campiello, Jane's Cafe on 3rd, La Pescheria, and Alberto's on Fifth - Fine Italian Restaurant. Naples also boasts an array of upscale condominiums like Bayfront Condo of Naples Fl and Via Delfino Condominium, offering luxurious waterfront living.

Because synthetic fibers in numerous clothing items are ever present, smoke particles and odor molecules tend to adhere to fabrics if prompt fire damage restoration measures in Naples are not taken. Also, water, commonly used to extinguish fires, can lead to significant water damage to clothing and linens. Fabrics may become saturated, leading to discoloration. Water damage can also leave behind lingering odors due to dampness. Addressing these issues requires specialized knowledge and equipment, which is where SERVPRO's expertise comes into play. SERVPRO crews plan garment restoration by advising the client to categorize their clothing into three groups;

  • Garments required urgently
  • Attire needed for future use
  • Seasonal clothing

If we employ a subcontractor, we ensure that the subcontractor creates a detailed inventory of clothing items before removing them from the work site.

Cleaning and Deodorization of Garments 

Only some skilled dry cleaning shops can remove the undesirable odors caused by fires. Inexperienced attempts may inadvertently exacerbate issues by setting residues or intensifying odors. SERVPRO crews understand the appropriate steps to ensure thorough and proper cleaning.

Stages and methods while cleaning and deodorizing garments

  • Removing clothes from metal clothes hangers immediately
  • Blowing out garments using compressed air
  • Spraying garments with a solvent-based odor counteractant
  • Thermal fogging may deodorize clothing

Conventional dry cleaning or laundering methods may not effectively eliminate smoke odors from garments. To address this issue, we enclose garments in bags and subject them to a fogging process. This fogging treatment can be applied before, during, and after cleaning, especially for garments heavily affected by residues and odor.
