Gentle Leather Cleaning & Restoration
It doesn’t take long for oils, dirt, and other substances to work their way into leather materials. Many cleaning products currently on the market are NOT appropriate for leather and may break down leather finishes. This can lead to dryness and cracking. If you see cracks or fading on your couches or chairs, call us. You can prevent further wear and even restore the leather’s color and integrity with Van’s Chem-Dry Certified Leather Cleaning.
How Often Should I Clean My Leather?
Leather furniture is an investment that can last a lifetime—but only if it’s properly cared for. Over time, leather can become dry and cracked, so it’s important to clean and condition it on a regular basis. The frequency of cleaning will depend on the type of leather and how often the furniture is used. As a good rule of thumb, it’s recommended that you clean your leather at least four times a year – with a professional cleaning at least one of those times.
We offer home cleaning products that you can put to use in-between our professional cleanings. You can easily maintain your leather furniture’s integrity and beauty 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. Ask us today about how you can get this great product! We proudly serve all Sacramento & Elk Grove metro areas, including Carmichael, Elverta, Gold River, North Highlands, Rancho Cordova, Rancho Murieta, Rio Linda, Rosemont, West Sacramento & Wilton, CA.
Get Advanced Protection From…
Oils & Grease
Oils from both us and our animals attach and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.
Consider the dust that builds up on a coffee table or desk over a week. This same dust is being deposited on your leather. In addition to this dust, you add airborne cooking oils and pollutants that are present, to some degree, in every home.
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 and attach to the leather every time the furniture is used.
Dyes & 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 pen or the aspiring toddler artist can be hard to avoid.
