Leather Cleaning by Absolute Carpet Care

The Leather Cleaning Process

When we arrive we will assess the furniture and determine the type of leather and which process will work safely and most effectively. We then apply a cleaner that will break up the dirt and oils on the leather.

We will then gently agitate the surface of the leather and remove dirt and oils with a terry cloth pad leaving a clean dry surface. To leave your furniture protected, we apply a conditioner that replenishes the natural oils in your furniture leaving it soft and flexible.

All leather comes from one source, the hides of animals. Different animal skins are used to produce a variety of looks in leather. The most common comes from cows. All leathers are processed in similar manners to achieve the look and feel of a particular purpose. Once the leather is tanned and processed, certain sections are then selected for use on a particular application. This process determines the type of leather that will be made available to you. In almost all situations, similar tanning and dyeing chemicals and processes are used. Many different types of leather are used. The most common, Top Grain (coated) leather is used in almost all automotive and furniture upholstery. This type of leather is the most durable and easiest to maintain. Aniline (Nubuck) is a form of leather with a very soft feeling. Usually there is no finish, leaving it unsealed and susceptible to dirt and staining. Suede is a form of this leather.

Leather Cleaning Stain Removal

Regular cleaning and replenishment of natural oils, will keep the leather in good condition for a very long time. Oils in the leather will dry out and evaporate even when the leather is not regularly used. To keep the leather soft and flexible, dirt and grime which have accumulated on the surface must be removed, and the oils be periodically replaced. No matter how carefully you protect your leather, spills and other accidents can cause potential problems. Many stains can be easily removed if corrected immediately using the proper product. In most cases, home remedies that are tried only succeed in setting the stain in deeper, making it impossible to remove. It’s important that stains be treated properly from the start.
