Why you should clean your fur

You do not only clean a fur coat because it gets dirty. Because fur is a natural material it is of great importance to have it cleaned and conditioned once a year. Whether you own a garment made out of mink, beaver, fox, rabbit, sable or something else, we know how to deal with it!

Conditioning of leather

Conditioning of the leather is essential to keeping the natural oils in the pelts from drying out. During our conditioning and glazing process we remove pollutants, dust and chemicals that are trapped in the fur and it’s pores.

By conditioning the fur we remove the particulates from the skin and replennish the natural oils in the skin.

Glazing

Glazing is the process of bringing out the natural luster and sheen of a fur and is normally performed after the cleaning process. This involves a steaming/ironing procedure that’s unique to the type of fur being treated.

Damage prevention

Your fur coat, fur vest or anything else that goes around your body has points of tension. If the leather of the pelts becomes dry, the probability of rips and tears increases.  To avoid future damages it is important to regularly clean your garment as a form of maintenance for the skins.

Removing dirt, stains and odors

You love your fur, but accidents happen to the best of us. Whether you spilled fluids on your fur coat or it got wet by the rain, it will need care by an expert.

Unlike fabric storage, fur coats should never be stored in ceder closets nor should ceder blocks be placed in the closest. Ceder pulls moisture from the air and can subject your coat to dry/rot conditions.

If you own a fur coat you should avoid using mothballs or other moth proofing chemicals near it.

Because moth balls can react with moisture in the air and with the natural oils in your fur, it can cause irreparable damage to fur and leather very quickly.

Keep in mind that fur needs to breath. Never store your fur coat in a plastic bag, which prevents air from circulating and can dry out the leather. Rather, for a long term storage solution, use a professional cold storage facility like ours in Mineola.
