Professional Fur Care

Although your fur coat is extremely durable, it still needs special care to maintain its soft and luxurious look and feel. Furs are not only the most useful part of your winter wardrobe by keeping you warm and dry, but they’re also investment that could last a lifetime.

Since both fur & shearling garments are organic, they should be cleaned and placed in cold storage between seasons, which helps to prolong the life look of your fur.

  • We offer professional fur & shearling cleaning, repairs, and alterations at our Manhattan & Greenwich locations.
  • We also have cold storage vaults on premise in New York City. Please visit our fur storage page for more information regarding our fur storage, repair and cleaning services.

Our Team Can Answer All Your Questions

Need assistance with one of our coats, an item from another manufacturer, or a vintage piece? Our team can assist you. The most common question people have relates to rain. If you get caught in light rain, shake out your coat to remove the rain and let it air-dry. However, if you get caught in a downpour and your fur gets completely soaked through, it will need immediate professional fur care. In that case, bring your coat to the expert fur consultants at Pologeorgis Furs for proper care and conditioning, or use our complimentary pickup and delivery in Manhattan.

Professional Fur and Shearling Cleaning

It is important to consult a reputable furrier to have your fur coat professionally cleaned and conditioned regularly. Your mink coat may not appear to need it, but your fur coat is regularly exposed to the sun, wind, rain, snow and airborne pollutants, all of which can damage and degrade the fur. Pologeorgis is an expert in professional fur cleaning and shearling cleaning. Pologeorgis also cleans leathers and suede garments, as well as sable coats and jackets. Regular cleaning is necessary to remove all microscopic dust, salt, makeup and perfume to keep your fur coat looking and feeling soft and beautiful. We do not recommend a dry cleaner to care for your furs. Pologeorgis will professionally clean and condition your furs with meticulous attention to detail and our use of state-of-the-art methods and materials.

Expert Fur and Shearling Repairs

Our showroom is open for drop-offs at 143 West 29th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenue, in New York City. One of our expert fur consultants will carefully inspect each of your fur coats, fur jackets, fur vests, and fur accessories.

When you trust us with your garment one of our experienced master furriers will:

  • Inspect your fur coat and lining for any wear, stains, tears or rips.
  • Hand clean your coat’s lining with special attention given to any stains found during the initial inspection.
  • Fur (mink, fox, rabbit, beaver, and shearling) will then be cleaned in a specially designed drum filled with sawdust using an environmentally friendly fur cleaning solution. This process draws oil and dirt from your fur coat while protecting the fur from damage and has been used for decades.
  • Once the tumbling process is complete, the fur is either hand steamed or vacuumed using specialized machinery to remove any residue from the cleaning process.
  • Finally, one of our master furriers will perform a process of fur glazing. This finishing process causes the fur in your coat to fluff up and lie in one direction, leaving your fur looking lustrous and vibrant.

Entrust your precious furs to the master furriers at Pologeorgis to clean, repair and store your fur coats and you will be sure to enjoy your treasured furs for a lifetime.
