Cleaning and Sanitation
All renewed products are washed to a “clean as new standard” using the Tersus CO2 cleaning system, the most advanced waterless cleaning technology. Items that cannot be cleaned in the Tersus system are washed in commercial grade washing machines. Every renewed product begins it’s second life here, in the advanced washing machine, to ensure it arrives in your hands as clean as the day it was made. From this point forward, every step and station of the process involves cleaning and sanitization.
After laundry, products are then identified by technicians, matching products to their original data. New bar codes and unique product identifiers are added for tracking, inventory and impact information.
Repair technicians thoroughly inspect and identify the processes that need to take place to restore garments to renewed standards. Products are noted with different color tape to signify different repairs that are needed. No two products are alike, so each one is reviewed thoroughly to inspect and identify the repairs.
