Fur Cleaning

By William H. Harris

When finding a professional fur cleaner, do not risk taking your fur to a regular dry cleaner.

Why You Should Have Your Furs Professionally Cleaned


You found the perfect fur. The color matches your skin tone beautifully. The shape flatters exquisitely. You want to make sure you favorite “wow” piece lasts forever.

Regular fur maintenance will help you fur look like new for years. Among regular repair and proper storage, fur cleaning is another important part of your fur maintenance tool kit.

Consistent fur cleaning and glazing are critical in protecting the natural oils and soft texture of your garments. Professional fur cleaning not only protects the outer furs, but helps the underfur and lining.

Your fur coat or jacket may not look or feel dirty, but there is a different story happening deep within the fur pelts. Tiny particles get locked into the base hairs of each fiber. What kinds of particles get stuck in fur? Everything from dirt, sand, and grime to smoke or perfume odors are attracted to fur.

If these particles are not removed, they can erode the natural oils and lead to a faded appearance and weakened pelts. If the furs are weakened too much due to inadequate cleaning, it can cause permanent   damage and costly repairs in the future.

Much of this happens during normal wear throughout the fall and winter season. This is why it is convenient to have your coat cleaned in the spring months before going into storage. With the right storage, properly cleaned fur can last for decades.
