There are several ways in which clothing shipments can develop and accumulate unfortunate odors. Mold and mildew is a common problem with apparel shipped from warm, high-humidity countries such as India, China and Vietnam. These conditions can foster mold growth that leaves an unmistakable must odor on the product. Other typical odor-producing culprits include the accumulation of moisture during transit, fungus, and material degradation, any of which may occur during longer overseas trips. Unpleasant odors can also permeate an apparel shipment through moisture, leaky containers, or become permeated from other non-apparel items shipped in the same container to name a few.
Rather than experiencing the lost time and tremendous expense that comes with replacement shipments of foul-smelling clothing or merchandise, you can remove the odor instead. Quality Corrections and Inspections can provide an effective treatment that works well on imported garments with unpleasant odors, as well as home goods, toys, and other types of merchandise. We can restore your products to like-new condition quickly and at a much lower cost than replacement.
When you send your shipment to QCI, we’ll implement our proven ozone treatment process to remove the unpleasant odor. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), ozone gas contains antimicrobial properties that kill bacteria and other odor-causing contaminants. Our ozone process is completely chemical-free and works on most odors that might accompany your overseas shipments.
QCI has the equipment, resources and expertise to take on large-scale projects for all types of apparel, or fabric-like merchandise. Because we handle high-volume jobs, you can also benefit from per-unit discounts that can help you save money.
