Cleaning is as necessary and important as summer storage to maintain your fur’s original brilliance and luster. When dust, dirt, oils, and other soiling substances are not removed from the furs, they will act as a sponge by drawing out natural oils. This can even have an abrasive effect on the hairs of the furs causing the natural shine to appear old and tired. Dust, dirt, oils, and other soiling substances can accumulate on your furs even without wear, therefore we recommend getting your furs professionally cleaned yearly.
York Furrier cleans your furs at our locations in Deer Park & Elmhurst because the fur cleaning process is very different from the dry cleaning process used on your clothes. Dry cleaning uses chemicals that can dry out fur and make the leather brittle. When York Furrier cleans your fur, we use a custom process that has been specifically designed to clean and revitalize furs. First the process removes the dirt and excess oils. Next, your fur is glazed to bring out its natural sheen and luster. This process preserves the elegance of your treasured fur providing maximum durability.
