[CentOS] manipulating files and directories with spaces

Hi,
    This might be a little O.t. so private responses please.
    I've got apache and samba running on a CentOS5 box enabling windows 
users to add web content. My issue is i've had to restore some backup data 
that was previously archived. The permissions aren't matching up so i'm 
wanting to use find and xargs to change them appropriately. Normally i do:
find . -type type |xargs chmod value "{}"\;
which usually works. My issue is the files were made with spaces so find 
isn't able to find them. Does anyone have a workaround? Some urgency!
Thanks.
Dave.
