Unpleasant odors can permeate footwear through moisture, leaky containers, items shipped in the same container and much more.
There are several ways in which footwear shipments can develop and accumulate unfortunate odors. Mold is a common problem with footwear shipped from warm, humid countries such as India, China and Vietnam. The conditions foster mold growth that leaves an unmistakable musty 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.
Rather than experiencing the lost time and tremendous expense that comes with replacement shipments of foul-smelling, you can remove the odor instead. Quality Corrections and Inspections can provide an effective treatment that works well on imported sneakers with unpleasant odors as well as boots, shoes and other types of footwear. 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 footwear 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 in footwear. 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 footwear. Because we handle high-volume jobs, you can also benefit from our per-unit discounts that can help you save money. And with facilities on the East Coast and West Coast, we can minimize shipping times and ensure you receive your newly odor-free shoes as quickly as possible.
