Apparel Repair: “Tis the Season for Smelly Garments!

Blog

Have you ever received a shipment of goods with a strong odor? Do the garments or other items have a mold or mildew smell. Do they smell like oil or gas? What do you do with it? What if the musty smelling goods represented $1.6 million dollars at retail and you can’t put them on the shelves as they would stink up the whole store? Darn It’s Apparel Repair team can help.

Was the issue caused by mold / mildew, improperly cured dye, chemical reaction, or were the units just packed damp before shipping? Darn It! will find the best solution and process to remove the odor. There are many options available to aid in the odor removal process. Depending on the item or fabric makeup, the options would include Airing Out, Hand Cleaning, Dry Cleaning, Laundering or Ozone Treatment.

In most cases, Darn It! will test a few of the processes to see which one presents the best results. The one process that has been very successful is the Ozone process. When people hear the word Ozone, they think that this is extremely bad for the atmosphere, but that is not the case with this process. Chemically, ozone is oxygen with an extra atom added. Electrically, ozone is oxygen with a higher energy level. Ozone oxidizes airborne pollutants, then reverts back to oxygen, transforming polluted air to pure and re-freshened air.

Is the Ozone treatment safe?

Yes, in the hands of a trained technician using a properly built ozone room, ozone shock treatment is safe. Proper ozone treatment occurs in unoccupied spaces, with sufficient time given for the ozone to revert into safe, breathable oxygen. Ozone leaves no residue and creates no harmful by-products or chemicals.
Our sealed off ozone room is equipped with timers and vent fans to ensure proper ventilation for handling after each treatment is completed.
The $1.6 million dollars of Men’s Denim Jeans arrived at Darn It’s dock 3 weeks ago, with a very musty odor. You couldn’t even put your nose close to them without gagging. After hanging and Ozoning the 12,000 pairs of jeans, Darn It’s Apparel Repair team was able to save the shipment for the retailer and get them back to them for the holiday shopping season.
