The Truth About Leather Cleaning
There are so many leather cleaning products out there that are unsafe for leather. Many product developers choose to create simple-to-use products, that achieve instantaneous results regardless of the long-term effects on the leather. They do this because they are concerned with meeting the customer’s desire to get noticeable results without spending as much money or time. But we’re pretty sure you want clean leather, that lasts as long as it should, at a reasonable cost, without taking too much time out of your busy day. That’s why Chem-Dry formulated our own cleaning products and process that checks all of these boxes.
Green Leaf Chem-Dry is Olympia's trusted home and office cleaner with 5 stars out of 5 from 140+ reviews and counting!
Safe & Effective Leather Cleaning in Olympia
Chem-Dry’s leather products are very effective, yet gentle, for leather furniture. Our products can help clean and revitalize the scuffs, scratches, and fading found in leather furniture. With regular cleaning from a leather specialist, you can prevent undue wear and maintain the longevity of your leather upholstery.
What Causes Leather Deterioration?
- Oils: The oils which both humans and animals naturally secrete, are deposited on leather and can cause substantial damage to the protective finishes on leather couches and chairs. Hair and hand oils transferring to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture are common areas to find this kind of wear.
- Airborne Contaminants: Consider the dust that gathers on a coffee table or desk over the space of a week. A similar amount of dust collects other places too, like your leather furniture. Furthermore, airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants are present, to some degree, in every home.
- Common Soils: Common dirt, sand, and plant fibers can all be tracked in from outside. Sand can be especially abrasive on leather surfaces. These soils are introduced into the home by adults, kids, and pets and attach to the leather and increases wear.
- Dyes and Inks: The inks from newsprint can also be deposited on leather. Some clothes, such as denim, can transfer dye onto leather as well. The ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist is perhaps the most harmful.
Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts, and Fading
Green Leaf Chem-Dry technicians are trained in handling all sorts of leather issues. We can access a number of pigment colors, similar to those used in the tanning process, to repair the inevitable scrape or scratch on leathers with an accurate color match. We can even revitalize the color on sensitive aniline leathers.
How Often Should I Clean My Leather Furniture?
You should regularly dust and vacuum your furniture to minimize damage. In addition to that, professional leather cleaning and conditioning should be done once every 6-12 months.
Between professional cleanings, use Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner to properly maintain the leather, and also rejuvenate the protective coating with Chem-Dry Protection Cream. Both can be found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit. Ask us more about it.
