How do I clean my structural fire fighting garments?

The fabric configurations for structural fire fighting garments vary considerably. Therefore we strongly recommend that the care instructions that appear upon a label internal to the garment be read and adhered to. If the label has become dislodged during the life of the garment, please contact your nearest Stewart & Heaton Clothing office and we will try and identify the style and applicable cleaning instructions for you.

If the garments have a removable liner (such as they do on styles J340 and T340), then there is the ability to clean the outer shell and the thermal liner separately which is ideal for thorough cleaning and garment longevity. If you choose not to remove the thermal liner from the outer shell for laundering purposes, then the whole garment needs to be cleaned following the procedures listed for the thermal liner (ie. the section that requires the most careful cleaning). Failure to do so will deteriorate the thermal liner and therefore disrupt its protective integrity.

Prior to cleaning remove all loose items (eg. gloves, personal items) and ensure that all closures are fastened inclusive of front closure zip and velcro.
