It’s Time to Waterproof Your Raincoats

When it comes to waterproofing your raincoats, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. If your raincoat is made of plastic material, you don’t need to do anything but if it’s made out of a more finer fabric, then you need to protect its waterproof layer over time. Due to the weather and other conditions, the waterproof layer on your raincoat can wear down over time. Waterproofing your raincoat will extend the life of your raincoat.

Here are a few tips for waterproofing your raincoat:

1) When buying a waterproof product, read the label carefully. At Arthur Copeland, we know which waterproofing product works best for your raincoat. By bringing your raincoat to us, we can ensure that your raincoat has been waterproofed properly.
2) Make sure your raincoat is fully clean. Any amount of dirt or grime, no matter how small, can weaken or ruin the waterproofing process.
3) Let the raincoat dry thoroughly. Sometimes you will need a second–or even a third–coat for full effectiveness. Other times you will need to bind the product to the fabric using heat, needing to iron the raincoat after everything is dry. We have the expertise to handle this task efficiently and effectively.

At Arthur Copeland, we offer full-service raincoat waterproofing. Our products are always organic and top-of-the-line, meaning it won’t damage your fine fabric, change, or fade its colors. We dry clean your raincoat to remove all amounts of soil, and we know which specific treatment each fabric needs. Bring your raincoat in today to preserve it for the next few years, and protect the layer that protects the rest of your superior fashion.
