Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Fur
My home is air conditioned, why do I need to put my fur in cold storage?
In addition to keeping your fur in a temperature controlled environment during the warmer weather, maintaining the correct humidity is also important for your fur. Home air conditioning is also very drying to furs. At Dino’s, we own our own climate and humidity controlled vault. By storing your fur with us, it is protected from moths, rodents, mold, and mildew
My fur looks clean, why should I condition it yearly?
Should I keep my fur in a plastic bag when I’m not wearing it?
No, you should never store your fur in plastic. During the winter months, keep your fur in a cool area with enough air circulating around it. You should also allow enough room in your closet so the fur isn’t crushed. Of course, during the summer months it should be stored in a climate and humidity controlled environment.
