Why a Fur Coat Needs Yearly Cleaning and Storage
Does your fur coat really need cleaning and storage during the summer? One of the most important steps after purchasing a fur coat is taking care of your investment. That means yearly cleaning and fur storage. You may not think your coat is dirty, but furs absorb odors and dust just hanging in your closet. Makeup and oils from your hair and hands can cause the hairs to stick together. There is no question, in order to preserve your fur and keep the pelts supple, you should have your fur cleaned and stored in a cold storage vault every summer. This simple move will have your fur looking as beautiful as the day you bought it.
Fur Coat Cleaning
Fur coat cleaning is a hands-on process. First, the lining is inspected and hand cleaned to remove salt stains. Next, the coat is placed in a drum with a sawdust based material used specifically to clean fur. This process will remove oils, makeup, dirt, and odors. Then the fur is transferred to another drum and tumbled to remove loose hairs, the pollutants, and the cleaning material.
Following the drums, the coat is hand glazed and conditioned, restoring your furs natural sheen. The final step is a thorough inspection by our seamstress to close an open lining, tighten closures, or repair any tears.
When you have your furs cleaned, take them only to an Authorized Furcare Specialist. Fur cleaning is like no other cleaning process. An Authorized Furcare Specialist uses equipment and materials specifically designed for fur.
Fur Coat Storage
For fur storage maximum protection, you should always choose a professionally run facility with humidity controlled and temperature controlled cold storage vault. Prior to placing your fur coat in the vault, our professionally trained staff will examine the fur, lining, all closures, and pockets.
Cold Storage facilities for fur storage should have:
• 35-55° temperatures
• Humidity controlled between 45 and 55%
• Insect proof
• Theft protection
• Minimal U.V. light exposure
• Ample space for each garment
Can I Store my Fur Coat at Home?
A fur coat should not be stored at your home. Keeping your coat at home in a closet when it is warm will cause the pelts to become dry, brittle and deteriorate. Because furs absorb odors, you should never use moth balls or a cedar closet to store your precious fur coats. Perfumes, smoke from fireplaces and cooking are also culprits when it comes to fur.
