Flood damage

Floods need not cause irreversible damage to textiles if dealt with quickly and professionally. Permanent damage can be caused when a textile is left damp with floodwater for long periods. The fibres of the textile rot, they become dry and brittle and the deterioration of the fibres will increase dramatically if the textile is not thoroughly cleaned and dried quickly -ideally within 48 hours. Thorough cleaning is essential to avoid dirt from the floodwater remaining in the textile causing premature decay.
