Fur Storage and Fur Cleaning
Springtime Means Fur Maintenance
Spring fur storage and fur cleaning is upon us. The maintenance of your beloved fur essentials is essential in the warm months of the year. There are still many fur owners who are not conscious of the need for fur coat cold storage and fur cleaning.
The substantial utilization of your fur garments in the cold months of winter necessitates a thorough cleanup in spring. This should be followed by having your furs stored away in a cold storage facility during the year’s warm/hot months.
The Fur Cleaning process
Fur coat cleanings should be executed by fur experts(furriers), not a regular dry cleaning service. Fur is a very involved process that requires knowledge of the fur pelts and their condition. There are a few options a skilled furrier would utilize to clean a fur coat. This is dependent, again, on the health and type of fur the jacket is constructed from. You have to be careful when selecting a furrier to clean your fur essentials.
Cold storage is necessary to preserve the life of your fur coat or fur accessory. The warm months of the year serve to damage the skins(fur) of the fur coat. Warm temperatures dry out the fur skins.
Not cold storing your fur, subsequently makes the fur skin brittle and hard. This leads to ripping and tearing of the fur coat.
As a general rule, you should store your fur coats in a facility that is a constant temperature range below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity should range between 45 and 55 percent.
