Tough-to-clean household items

Fire? Flood? Four months in a damp basement? We can clean that!

We can clean and restore a wide variety of household items to almost near-new shape no matter how marred or soiled they have become.

Whether it’s your favorite Ugg boots, a hand-me-down teddy bear or a swanky suede handbag, sentimental household items are just as susceptible to mold, mildew and mud damage as any other easily-cleaned item.  When you introduce smoke or mud from a fire or flood, yesterday’s treasures can easily become tomorrow’s trash.

Our Esporta ES 3300 has proven to be particularly effective at reconditioning soft goods and returning them very near to their former luster. When conventional household washers or traditional dry-cleaners won’t clean an item, chances are pretty good we can get the job done.

Returned to their original Uggliness.

For example, a pair of Ugg Boots left in a damp basement over a summer can become a breeding ground for every species of mold known to mankind. You’d be tempted to pitch them and move on. However, when run through our four-stage cleaning cycle, we’ve seen Uggs come out looking and smelling as if they’d just come from an unopened shoe box (save the wear and tear they endured prior to getting dirty).

We can clean the following household items:

– winter boots – hiking boots – leather slippers
– suede coats – leather coats – suede handbags
– leather handbags – suede or leather hats – stuffed animals or dolls
– throw or bed pillows – bedding  – curtains or drapes


If you’ve had a flood, contended with smoke damage or have household items that have been marred by biological contaminants (mold, mildew, etc.), let us have a look. Chances are pretty good we can return them to their former splendor. Contact us via email or give a call on 1 (203) 288-5000.

We have our Rug Back!

Our cat, Jack, decided our favorite oriental rug was better suited as his personal pee pad. Once he made that decision, our other cat Whitey joined in. Well, nothing we did helped as the “alluring” smell lingered. We brought the rug to Clean Care and now we have our rug back! Thanks, Clean Gear! – Elizabeth O., Hamden, CT
