The Process of Cleaning a Fur Coat

When you take your fur in for a professional fur cleaning, the experts start off by inspecting it to spot the problem areas. They then roll up the sleeves of the coat to prepare it for cleaning and mix the cleaning solvent.

The experts scrub the coat with solvent before placing it into a cleaning drum with a sawdust cleaning mixture. Once the drum finishes rotating the coat and the mixture, the coat is placed into the other side of the drum to remove the sawdust. If the fur is too fragile, the expert will apply the sawdust mixture by hand. The fur is also dried, glazed, and steamed. Check out this video to learn more.

If you own fur in Chicago, it is important to get it professionally cleaned and stored to keep it in top condition. With the proper care, your fur coat can last for generations.
