We offer exceptional comprehensive water, fire, and smoke damage restoration services.

We remove any unpleasant odors and restore any badly stained or water-damaged garments and fabrics to their original condition. Fire debris does not only pose a risk to your garments and home textiles, but also to your health. We combat these harmful effects by removing dust and performing comprehensive air purification services to your home.

If you feel that your apparel or textiles have been damaged beyond repair, let us make the final determination. We do all that we can to ensure that we can restore your valued possessions to the way you remember them.

Apparel and home textiles that are not treated immediately after contamination can develop airborne mold spores and harmful residue, so it is essential that you contact us as soon as possible.

RIA Visits Madame Paulette!

Because of our extensive expertise in the field of restoration, the Restoration Industry Association (RIA) chose to tour our facility in the fall of 2012 to view our daily operations and carefully developed step-by-step restoration process. Please see the video, below, of the sire visit.

Recent Commissions

Currently, we are doing pro bono work for the NYC Police Museum to save police uniforms, dating from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s, that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy. We will also be working pro bono with the National Guard Militia Museum of New Jersey, to restore WWI National Guard uniforms and accessories that were also severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy.

We have recently restored a late 1800s uniform worn by Winston Churchill (pictured above). A brief history on the piece and the original owner of the uniform can be read here.
