Because the disruption caused by the pandemic has exposed many vulnerabilities, it’s vital to ensure that elements within a factory or supplier’s control are managed.
One of those factors is mold. Invisible to the naked eye, mold spores are everywhere, but there are ways to prevent mold from adversely affecting or even ruining your products and components.
Amid growing global uncertainty, factories and brands are frequently building up a larger stock of materials and finished products than they would do under normal circumstances. These items are also being stored in one place for longer periods. Mold is very difficult to get rid of once it affects items, hence the importance of preventing it.
If companies don’t have mold prevention policies in place during manufacturing, storage, and packing, mold can profoundly damage clothing, footwear, and any components made of leather, or natural materials.
The impacts of mold can include:
product stains, discoloration, and unpleasant smells
late deliveries and loss of sales
dissatisfied or even repulsed customers, allergy risks, and product recalls
