Note: the files themselves are not "damaged" -- Subversion will never
alter the contents of a file when it is first imported/added. It may
make a file look different in the working copy, according to
svn:eol-style. But the svn:mime-type is just a property associated
with the file. Its only real use is when the file is served via HTTP
to a web browser.

If a file is committed to the repository with an svn:mime-type, why
don't you just delete/correct the property in a following commit?
