Your fur coat is your shield against the harsh winter elements. It protects you from the East Coast’s unforgiving snow, sleet, and ice. As much as your fur coat protects you, it needs a dose of tender loving care to keep its beauty and resilience.
Furs by Gartenhaus is your premiere fur service specialist. Our on-site, secure fur vault is designed to keep your fur looking beautiful during the summer months.
Proper vault storage is essential for your furs. It might be tempting to leave your fur at home while you’re not wearing it. Keeping your fur at home may seem harmless, but can cause deterioration faster than professional cold storage. What causes this?
Your home maintains a comfortable temperature during the changing seasons; however, fur is a delicate material. Fur holds small amounts of natural oil. These oils give fur its plush comfort, but the wrong amount of humidity and fluctuating temperatures can wreak havoc on the natural balance of oils in your fur.
We have the same faculties international boutiques and furriers use for storage.
Furs by Gartenhaus state of the art vaults include:
- Secure Access and Monitoring
- UL Approved
- Certified Climate and Humidity Control
- UV Light Control
- Vermin and Insect Protection
Regular and cedar closets are not made to store fur because they lack the proper air circulation. Fur is delicate and is prone to picking up the other odors that may be lurking in your storage. Critters like moths, spiders, and other bugs can cause severe damage to your coat, leading to expensive replacement of entire pelt sections.
Our vaults use cold storage technology. The longer your coat is in cold storage, the longer it will last. Cold storage preserves the fur because the cool temperature slows down the evaporation of natural oils. At a constant 50°F and 50% humidity, your fur will stay soft and wearable for years to come. Our facilities also provide ample space for each of your furs, ensuring they have room to breathe comfortably while in storage.
We serve customers in the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. areas. To reserve a storage space, give us a call and we will provide a drop-off time. When you bring in your fur, we do a complete inspection of your garment:
- Identify and confirm the type of fur
- Determine the current condition of the pelt
- Look for any rips, tears, or damage
- Inspect linings, closures, buttons, etc.
- Suggest other services as necessary such as cleaning or repair
Once the inspection is complete, we will contact with you and provide a total cost of services. Picking up your fur is easy, and we can store any fur, regardless of where you purchased it.
