Leather furniture Preventive Care
When it comes to leather care and cleaning, a little prevention goes a long way
Leather furniture has a protective top finish that is applied in the tannery to keep moisture away from the leather. Over time, the top finish begins to wear. If nothing is done, the top finish eventually wears away and any contact with moisture can produce unsightly cracking or staining, and then it is too late for preventive care.
416-SO-CLEAN technicians can help you follow the advice of tanneries and leather furniture manufacturers who recommend semi-annual professional care and cleaning of your fine leather furniture. A little prevention goes a long way to help avoid cracking, stains, and damage that cannot be repaired easily.
7-Step leather cleaning Process
Our trained technicians perform 7-Step leather cleaning, moisturising and protection, based on the latest advances in leather care:
- Dry soil extraction
- Application of fabric cleaner
- Agitation and scrubbing
- Extraction of wet soil with a white cloth
- Application of Leather Moisturizer Cream to rejuvenate the leather
- Application of Leather Protection Cream to help prevent stains
Understanding Leather Protection
Leather is highly absorbent and exhibits characteristics similar to natural fibre fabrics. That means it absorbs water, water-based substances, and liquid substances, including oils, fatty substances, and the fatty acids found in perspiration. All of these substances can damage and break down the leather.
To preserve leather, after every cleaning, we apply a Leather Moisturizer Cream to rejuvenate the leather and prevent dryness, followed by an application of Leather Protection Cream that creates an invisible, breathable barrier between you and your leather. The Leather Protection Cream helps prevent stains from being absorbed into the pores of the leather, where they become almost impossible to remove.
Unlike most other fabrics, the majority of stains cannot be removed from leather. This is why proper preventive care is so important, including application of the Leather Protection Cream that helps prevent stains from being absorbed into the pores of the leather, where they become almost impossible to remove.
