Why choose Air Fresh Chem-Dry for Leather Cleaning?

Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaner, offers the absolute best leather cleaning, leather conditioning and leather restoration services. Leather Furniture cleaning and maintenance should be done routinely because over time, body oils, perspiration, skin acids and other soils can work their way into the leather. Many leather cleaning products currently on the market are not appropriate for leather, and may break down leather finishes, leading to dryness and cracking. Chem-Dry leather products are safe and effective for your leather furniture. With regular cleaning by a Chem-Dry Certified Leather Specialist, you can prevent undue wear and keep your leather furniture looking great year around.

Why Leather Deteriorates if it is Unmaintained

  1. Oils and Grease — Body oils from both humans and animals sink in and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head rests and cushions as well as arm rests of the furniture which can cause serious irreversible damage to the protective finishes found on leather. Professional leather cleaning can cut through oil and grease unlike over the counter products.
  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. In addition to this dust you add airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants that are present—to some degree—in every home.
  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.
  4. Dyes and 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 leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist should not be forgotten.

Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts and Fading

Over the life of your furniture you are bound to experience some of the common problems associated with all leather furniture. Our Chem-Dry Certified Technicians are trained to address these problems. Chem-Dry has 60 stock pigment colors similar to the ones used in the tanning process to repair the inevitable scrape or scratch on protected leathers. We can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.

How Often Do I Clean My Leather

A regular cleaning schedule including professional cleaning 4 times a year is recommended.

In between professional cleanings you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture 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 your leather cleaning specialist at Air Fresh Chem-Dry for more information about at home care products.
