Full Answer

Annual cleaning maximizes the lifetime of the fur garment. Moreover, a furrier can detect any tears that might be otherwise unnoticed, and they can also replenish the fur using essential oils that enhance the fur's sheen, softness and longevity. Fur owners should never attempt cleaning or conditioning their furs at home, as this can cause damage to the fur. Regular dry cleaners are generally not equipped for fur cleaning, although some may also be furriers.
