- Fur storage and care – The beginning of spring, in early March, marks the start of Rizik’s fur storage season. We continue storing fur coats for women throughout the summer, carefully keeping them for you until the weather turns cold again. At no charge, we can pick up and deliver garments within our immediate DC Metro Area.
Furs should be professionally stored rather than kept in closets at home to assure proper climate control. We store all of the fur and shearling coats entrusted to us in temperature and humidity controlled storage vaults, their ideal storage environment.
In addition to professional storage, we recommend cleaning your furs annually. We clean furs using a three part non-immersion process that protects the integrity of the coat. During the first step, environmentally safe and natural cleaning agents are applied to each coat before being carefully and individually tumbled in a rotating wood cylinder. Secondly, we use vacuum cleaning to extract all traces of dust, dirt and odor. Finally, skilled technicians “glaze” the furs, combing and ironing the garments to revitalize them. These treatments refresh the coats, restore their sheen and extend their wear. If your coat requires repairs or stain removal, further custom care is available upon request.
- Fur restyling – As your taste evolves, your luxury fur coat's character can change too. Rizik’s expert fur restyling consultants can show you ways to redesign your coat, for a fraction of the cost of a new fur garment. Visit Outerwear & Fur Coats for additional information.
