What Harms Leather Furniture?
Over time, body oils, perspiration and other contaminants work their way into your leather furniture. Many leather cleaning products on the market are not suitable or effective for cleaning leather. In fact, some store-bought or DIY cleaning products may actually break down leather finishes, leading to dryness and cracking. Fortunately, our leather cleaning in Lafayette is safe and extremely effective for cleaning & restoring your leather furniture. With a regular leather cleaning, you can potentially prevent unnecessary wear and keep your leather furniture looking like new!
4 Main Causes of Leather Deterioration
1. Oils and Grease
Body oils from 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. These oils can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.
3. Common Soils
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.
2. 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! Plus, airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants eventually end up on your leather over time.
4. Dyes and Inks
Did you know that the ink from newsprint in newspapers can stain leather? Clothes, such as denim, can also transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. The direct ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist can’t be forgotten either!
Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts, and Fading
It’s inevitable that your leather couch, loveseat, or chair will experience some of the common problems associated with all leather furniture. Chem-Dry of Acadiana’s leather furniture cleaning in Lafayette will address these problems. Our trained technicians will sit down with you, assess the damage, and then explain our process before cleaning and restoring your leather furniture. Chem-Dry of Acadiana has 60 stock pigment colors similar to the ones used in the tanning process, so we can effectively repair scrapes or scratches on your leather. We can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.
How Often Should I Clean My Leather?
It’s recommended that your leather furniture get a professional cleaning 1-2 times per year. In between professional leather cleanings, you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture by cleaning it with Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner® and protecting it with Chem-Dry Protection Cream®. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit® available from Chem-Dry of Acadiana in Lafayette, LA.
