Every spring is time to store and service your valuable fur coat, shearling coat, and fur trimmed garments. It is imperative to store your furs in our climate controlled storage vault to protect skins from drying out and protect against heat damage, insects, and high humidity. Professional storage during summer months is most important in extending the longevity of your furs.
If a fur is not stored in a professional vault the hair itself may appear to be okay, but the natural oils of the back of the skin will begin to dry out causing the fur to easily rip or tear at the seams.
Keeping your garments at home during the summer could be a very costly mistake. Both standard and cedar closets are not suitable for storage. Caution! The smell from the use of cedar and mothballs will adhere to fur, leathers and wool, creating lasting unpleasant odors.
Your basement is not a professional storage vault. Though it may be cooler than the rest of your home, it does not offer the right conditions for fur storage, and can often give a musty smell to your coat.
And an added bonus is the extra closet space you will gain!
