How Can Anyone Reliability Get Rid of the Smell and Possible Microbial Growth Out of My Concord Family’s Sports Equipment?

Certified Fabric Restoration of New England (CFRNE) Offers the Unique Esporta Wash System for Food Grade Clean Sports Equipment Cleaning in Concord

From the first gloves and helmets of the little ones playing T-ball, the shin guards and shoulder pads of the high school or college soccer or football stars, to the elbow or knee pads of mom and dad revisiting their love of hockey or volleyball in an adult league, your Concord home overflows with sports gear. And with sports equipment comes a noxious smell and the worry about what substances or organisms cause it.

What Causes the Stench Commonly Found  in Sports Equipment?

When Concord athletes lace-up sports equipment, cleaning might not be their first thought, instead the competition is. After the practice, exhibition, or game, it is common for wet, sweaty jerseys and protective equipment to be jammed back into the bag. Then the bag lands in the trunk of the car or the back of an SUV. Days or weeks later, at the next camp, training, or contest you unzip the bag and discover highly malodorous and even moldy or mildewed equipment. The bodily fluids mixed with dirt, mold spores always in the environment, and pathogens from skin cells scraped off during the activity. 

What Kind of Pathogens Are In the Bag and On the Equipment?

The list of infectious agents is endless, but pathogens commonly found on sports gear include:

  • Mold and other fungi
  • E. coli 
  • Staph bacteria, including in rare cases methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, which is particularly dangerous
