Furs Last Longer with Proper Care
Harrop, Joanne Klimovich, Tribune-Review/Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
As spring approaches with warmer weather, fur coats need to go into storage.
"We are getting ready to send out letters to our customers about storage at the end of March," says Guy Herrmann, president of Carl W. Herrmann Furs, Downtown, and a board member of Fur Information Council of America.
"We have already cleaned more than 40 infested coats that were not stored in 2012."
Furs not properly taken care of can be destroyed by moth larvae. Signs include bare spots, usually at the hemline, unusual shedding and loose clumping of hair. In most cases, Herrmann says, he is able to repair the damage.
Don't let it get to that.
