Chem-Dry®, the World’s Largest Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner, offers the absolute best services in Leather Furniture cleaning and maintenance. As your leather furniture spends more time in use, you’ll see that more body oils, sweat, and skin acids will work into the materials, leaving a less natural and more dirty look. There are some cleaning products on the market that could potentially break down your leather rather than deep clean it, ruining your finish and drying out or cracking the furniture. You can count on all our leather products to be safe and effective at protecting and cleaning the leather furniture in your Fresno home. We’ve had over 300 tanneries and leather furniture manufacturers that have endorsed our leather cleaning products. With regular cleaning and protecting by a Chem-Dry Certified Leather Specialist, you can prevent undue wear on your leather furniture and keep it looking great.
How Does It Work?
Leather properly maintained will last four or five times longer than fabric or man-made fibers. Chem-Dry’s Certified Leather Specialists have been thoroughly trained in how to properly identify and care for your type of leather.
Aniline – Also known as Natural, Pure, Naked and Unprotected leather.
Protected – Also known as finished Semi-Aniline, Everyday, Pigmented and Painted leather.
Nubuck – Also known as Chaps, Distressed, Bomber and Suede leather.
After properly identifying the leather type, your Chem-Dry Professional can Clean, Protect and Repair (if needed) your leather furniture to keep it looking great.
How Do I Know My Leather Is Dirty?
On average, leather furniture should be cleaned every 6 months because of the following four common soiling problems:
- Oils & Grease – Body oils from both humans and animals attach and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and arm rests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.
- Atmospheric Oils – Think about the small build-up of dust you notice on your coffee table about a week after you last cleaned it. This same build-up and dust is also being deposited on your leather. In addition to this dust you add airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollution that is present, to some degree, in every home.
- Common Soils – These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants. The fibers are brought in the home by adults, kids and pets.
- Dyes and Inks – The inks from newsprint in newspapers can readily be deposited on leather. Clothes such as denims can transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. The direct ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist should not be forgotten.
- Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts and Fading
Over the life of your furniture you are bound to experience some of the common problems associated with leather furniture. Our Chem-Dry Certified Technicians are trained to address these problems. Our pigment stock has over 60 different colors to best match the ones used in tanning processes for your leather furniture which enables Acme Chem-Dry to thoroughly repair any scrapes or scratches on the unprotected leathers in your home. We can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.
How Often Do I Clean My Leather
A regular cleaning schedule including professional cleaning 2 times a year is recommended.
In between professional cleanings you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture by cleaning with Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner and rejuvenating the protection with Chem-Dry Protection Cream. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit.
