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. Call us if you see cracks or fading on your couches or chairs. You can prevent further wear and 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 cleaning and conditioning it regularly is essential. 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 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 severe 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.
Everyday dirt tracked in from outside and sand and plant fibers. The fibers are brought into the home by adults, kids, and pets and attach to the leather whenever the furniture is used.
Dyes & Inks
The inks from newsprint in newspapers can readily be deposited on leather. Clothes such as denim 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.
