real fur storageSummer is here, which means it’s time to give your real fur coat a break for a few months. It’s important to know how to store a fur coat properly so you can ensure it’s in great condition and ready to be worn right away when the temperatures get cooler again. Professional storage is ideal since it will be kept at the perfect temperature and extend the life of your fur. Here are other reasons why professional storage is recommended and what summer elements could potentially damage your fur.

Direct Sunlight

Some people choose to hang their real fur coat in a closet when they aren’t wearing it, which is great for a short-term solution. The main thing to remember is to keep your fur away from direct sunlight. The UV rays can make your fur oxidize and start slowly changing colors. It’s hard to restore the natural color of any given fur, so it’s best to store it away from direct light and only wear it at night during the summer months.

Heat And Humidity

Heat and humidity can also damage your real fur coat quickly. These elements dry out your fur’s natural oils and make it look dull and potentially brittle as a result. During the excessively humid months, even your home could experience humidity changes indoors and impact your fur. This is another reason why professional real fur storage is often the best option.

Pests

No matter how hard you try to keep them out, pests will somehow always find their way into your home during the summer. They fly in the door quickly when you open it, attach themselves to your clothes, bags and anything else you have. If they end up finding your real fur coat without you noticing, you may pull it out in the fall and see bald spots where the pests were living.

Why Professional Storage Matters

Professional real fur storage is ideal since your fur will be placed in a temperature-controlled vault until you’re ready to use it again. The temperature is kept at exactly 50 degrees and the humidity will never get above 50%. You should feel safe and secure knowing your real fur coat investment is kept locked away until you need it. The professionals will clean and prepare your fur for storage so it will look just as good as it did the day you dropped it off.
