Fur Cleaning 1In case you own a fur coat, you very well know that it is far from being inexpensive. Almost every kind of fur coat comes with a high price tag which makes it absolutely necessary that you view it as an investment for your personal style rather than just a mere coat in your wardrobe. But without proper maintenance, you may have to replace your fur coat within a couple of years.

Most people are tempted to save a little money by storing the coat at home. This is generally a very bad idea, as it costs a lot more in the long run. By storing it at home, you may probably damage it, which may require you to replace your fur coat within a year or two of usage. There are a few professionals who can help you maintain your coat’s brilliant shape and luster. With professional climate controlled fur storage facility, your fur coat can last for decades and even be passed on to your next generations. One of the professional storage experts is Widmer’s fur storage and here are the top 5 reasons to use Widmer’s fur storage for storing your fur coats.

1. To protect your fur coat from humidity, dryness and mold

It requires a humidity and temperature controlled closet to protect a fur coat from mildews, moths and other pests. The ideal environment for storing fur coats is usually 40-50 degree Fahrenheit at 50% humidity and adequate amount of air circulation. If these conditions are not met, it may result in moisture getting trapped in the fur fibers and resulting in irreparable damage to the coat. The moisture may also result in mold, giving an unpleasant smell of decay. At Widmer’s fur storage, extensive amount of care is taken to provide a healthy environment for your fur coat to remain in its excellent condition, so that you can wear it year after year.

2. To have the fur coat examined for damages

It might be possible that your fur coat is showing some signs of wear and tear. At Widmer’s fur storage, the professionals take extreme care to check for damages and see if they can be repaired. The damages are dealt with professionally and made sure that they don’t affect the normal usage of your coat.

3. To preserve the elegance of the fur
