Why you should professionally store your Denver leather and fur this summer

June 1, 2021

With summer quickly approaching, you may be unsure of how to care for your Denver leather and fur garments. While there are fun ways to include these treasured pieces into your warm weather wardrobe, you may also be ready to retire your leather and fur for the summer season. If that is the case, the experts at Jonval have you covered! By investing in professional leather and fur storage from Jonval, you can ensure your prized outerwear stays safe from damage. Although this may seem unnecessary, we promise it is not. Still on the fence? Check out why our experts think you should professionally store your Denver leather and fur this summer, below!

Keeps leather and fur safe from heat, humidity, and pests

Quality fabrics like leather and fur require very specific conditions for storage. This is especially true when it comes to storing these items for long periods of time, like the summer months. Although it may be tempting to take your chances on storing these at home, it is important to remember how sensitive the materials are to heat, humidity, and pests. For instance, fur subjected to elevated levels of humidity can develop mold in the fibers. While leather and fur exposed to high heat and low humidity can dry out, become brittle, and crack. Pesky insects can also be a problem. Between moths attracted to your favorite leather bomber jacket to mites burrowing into your fabulous mink coat- keeping pests out of your leather and fur goods can be difficult even in the most insect-proof of closets. By investing in professional storage services from Jonval, you can take the guesswork out of storing these pieces and keep them from incurring any unnecessary damage.

Professional storage is cheaper than replacing items

With the average cost of fur and leather garments ranging from the hundreds to thousands, investing in professional storage seems a small price to pay to keep these items safe. While it is possible to safely store your leather or fur at home, keeping conditions perfect for these items can be difficult (and costly). By storing your items in the Jonval vault, you do not have to worry about humidity levels, heat, light, or pests. Also, depending on the number of items and length of time you plan to store them, this can be much cheaper than repairing damages or replacing these garments.  
With a temperature and humidity-controlled environment, the Jonval vault is always the optimal setting for keeping your treasured piece in perfect condition.
