Storing your fur clothes properly


Storing our belongings is something that we are basically doing actively and passively every moment of every day. Our books are on our shelves, are photo albums are in some box on the attic, our clothes are in our closets, etc. Everything around is stored in one way or the other. All of those items have their own rules of how and where you should keep them. Depending on their purpose, they have varying complexity of storing condition requirements. Storing your fur clothes is one of those situations when it really matters how you have stored a particular type of item. Hiring U. Santini Moving and Storage Brooklyn company for their services to move you to a new home before they pick you up you must first make sure that your belongings are properly packed. That is why we have prepared a couple of key tips on ding just that.

When storing your fur clothes, location plays a really important part

This is the key ingredient of a safe storage environment for your fur clothes. The first thing here is that it should not be on direct sunlight. So you should make sure that your storage is a dark place or that it least is not touched by the sun throughout the day. Closets are thus obviously great places to store your fur. Next, it should be a cooler place. Fur clothes are after all made for colder weather. So, colder temperatures are thus the best temperatures for the furs. However, you must not leave them in a humid place. Humidity is rarely good for anything, so definitely avoid places such as basements because they are generally prone to humidity.

How to pack them?

One of the key segments of a move is packing. Packing your things properly is what can save them if something goes wrong, and will likely ruin them if you did not do it right. So, choose the hanger. It must be a broad-shouldered hanger because fur coats, for instance, are quite massive. Thus the hangers must be able to support their weight and not damage them in the process. The next step is to store them in a cloth bag. A plastic bag would dry the coat out, so get a big enough cloth bag. And finally, do not overfill the closet. This can lead to only damaging the structural integrity of your fur clothes, so avoid it at all costs.
