Be sure to check out the rest of our blog for more tips and tricks on how to get a cleaner and healthier home!

Clean Leather Furniture Regularly

For most normal and routine cleanings, you can remove dirt and dander by vacuuming the crevices of your leather furniture or using a dry dusting cloth. It is also important that you keep your leather furniture out of direct sunlight. Leather can fade over time if exposed to too much sunlight. While you should avoid cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, and any other abrasive soaps, you should use a good leather conditioner on your furniture every 6-12 months. 

Spills and stains are never fun to deal with. Especially when they happen on sensitive upholstery fabrics, it can seem impossible to ever restore the natural look the furniture once had. But what about spills and stains on leather furniture? Don’t panic anymore. Leather furniture is relatively easy to clean up because of its natural fabric.

So whether you spilled your morning cup of joe or your child spilled juice on the leather couch, don’t worry! When it’s leather, it’s a no-brainer! Simply take a clean, damp rag and wipe the affected area clean. Just be sure to steer clear of chemical-based products. Products that contain detergents can damage your leather instead of cleaning up the spills you intended, causing long term damages to ensue instead of a short term solution.

Restoring Leather Furniture

Unless you have your leather furniture locked away, it’s going to get a few scratches and start to fade. Part of our leather cleaning and restoration service is to fully address and solve these problems to give you beautiful leather furniture once more. Our team of expert cleaning technicians takes time to closely analyze your leather furniture’s flaws and apply special pigmentation that matches perfectly with your furniture’s original tan. We can also revitalize the color of sensitive aniline leathers.
