I don't believe algae is harmful to your fish. Especially since they were boiled and scrubbed. I am pretty sure there is no parasites or anything on it.

Welcome to the forum!

I have used many second hand decorations and plants, never any problems.
Do make sure that the holes in the decor are of a size, that the fish will not get trapped.
