Our Professional Services
Leather Furniture Cleaning & Restoration
ChemDry Carpet Solutions offers superior services in leather furniture cleaning & restoration. Chem-Dry is the world´s largest furniture and upholstery cleaner. Over time, body oils, perspiration, skin acids and other soils can work their way into the leather. Our leather furniture cleaning process is all done by hand, and helps to restore & revive your furniture.
Many cleaning products currently on the market are not appropriate for leather, and may break down leather finishes. This can promote dryness and cracking of the leather. Chem-Dry leather products are safe and effective for leather and have over 300 tanneries and manufacturers that endorse these products. With regular cleaning and protecting by a Chem-Dry Certified Leather Specialist, anyone can prevent undue wear on your leather furniture and keep it looking great for many more years.
Causes of Leather Deterioration
- Oils and 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 Soils— Consider the dust that builds up on a coffee table or desk over a week’s time. This same dust is being deposited on your leather. In addition to this dust you add airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants that are present—to some degree—in every home.
- Common Soils— These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibres from plants. The fibres are brought in the home by adults, kids and pets and attach to the leather every time the furniture is used.
- 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.
How Often Do I Clean My Leather
A regular cleaning schedule including professional cleaning 2-4 times a year is recommended.
Also, in between professional cleanings you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture 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.
