Margaret’s COVID-19 Decontamination Services for Garments, Handbags, Shoes and Household Items

Margaret’s COVID-19 Decontamination Services for Garments, Handbags, Shoes and Household Items

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Margaret’s Cleaners, your trusted expert for couture cleaning, is ready to assist you with the decontamination of all types of articles that are removable from your home. These select items include garments, textiles, leather, suede & fur articles, handbags, shoes, structured hats, and household items including lamp shades, deco pillows and more.

Full immersion dry cleaning and laundry is considered effective against coronavirus. However, some articles mentioned above, are not appropriate for the immersion process. In addition, full immersion cleaning on “new” items from retailers is best to avoid whenever possible. For all these cases, our decontamination service provides an ideal solution.

Margaret’s has developed proprietary customized chambers as well as the processes necessary to treat articles using “best practices” for coronavirus remediation. Four separate processes are available to use during treatment, and are chosen depending on the type of article being treated.

Each treatment stage has been recommended for coronavirus as has been discussed in current available literature. A minimum of two processes will be applied to each article, which will provide additional safeguards and assure confidence of an effective treatment. A summary of each process step and our application table can be found here.

We offer this new decontamination service for virtually anything you would like to have processed that does not require full immersion cleaning, just disinfecting. Margaret’s proprietary multi-step process will safely process your prized possessions from your hats and shoes to couture gowns and even household bed linens. Your items will be thoughtfully packaged for return delivery or shipment.

Households and Linen Care

Safely cleaning such items requires patience, testing and experience. Our Heritage Household Service is perfect for those precious items that need extra care.

Trust Margaret’s with your draperies, comforters, slip covers, and fine table linens. Our experienced take-down and re-hang service makes freshening your draperies a pleasure.

Restoration for Smoke, Odor, Water, and Mold Damage

Restoration for Smoke, Odor, Water, and Mold Damage

Smoke and odor restoration and mold remediation of couture garments and household goods are a Margaret’s specialty.

Not all restoration jobs are the same: garment damage that occurs during and after a fire, for example, requires a wide variety of expertise along with a diverse range of technologies and equipment.

The type of treatment best suited for any single garment is influenced by many factors, including the temperature of the fire, the presence of food, plastic and chemical odors, and the amount of moisture exposure.

Margaret’s has the nation’s broadest spectrum of cleaning and remediation technologies, along with specialized experts on staff who know what’s needed to assure the best possible results for fine textiles of all types, including leather and suede, window treatments, handbags, shoes, and all fine clothing, accessories. We’ve even restored a little girl’s favorite Cabbage Patch doll, vintage doll collections and sports memorabilia.
