Professional Fur Storage
Storing your luxury fur with Alaskan Fur when you are done wearing it for the season will extend the life of your garments. As soon as the weather turns warm, preserve your furs by placing them in a fur storage vault where the air temperature is chilled and the humidity is controlled.
Furs Can Dry Out & Rip
Heat and humidity exposure are a fur’s worst enemies when it comes to fur storage. Heat allows the skins to dry out, which leads to shedding and separation of the pelts. Humidity if too low, will allow the dry air to evaporate the natural oils in the skins more rapidly, drying out the skins and if the humidity is too high, the moist air will cause your furs to deteriorate.
Home air conditioning is insufficient for fur storage, as humidity levels vary. Cedar closets are not advisable for fur storage. Cedar and moth balls can dry out your furs and will create lasting unpleasant odors on your furs, faux furs, leathers and wool garments.
Ongoing Maintenance & Repair
Before cleaning or placing your garment in fur storage, our professional staff will look over your fur garment and recommend any needed minor repairs, such as a small seam tear you didn’t notice. Summer is a great time to repair or restyle your fur coat.
