Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaning Tips

Leather furniture needs regular maintenance and cleaning just like all the other areas and accessories in your home. Leather absorbs dirt and other contaminants just like upholstered furniture, but unlike your upholstered furniture, leather furniture has an added challenge. Leather furniture loses moisture and softness over a period of time. Store purchased cleaners may provide a temporary fix, but these products may also cause long term damage. Leather furniture is a long term investment and a beautiful additional to any home and as such requires proper cleaning and maintenance. The experts at Steam Green Carpet Cleaning use environmentally safe, professional leather cleaning products and specialized equipment to clean, moisturize, protect and rejuvenate your leather furniture without any harmful side effects.
The experts at Steam Green Carpet Cleaning have provided the following list of 5 Do’s and Don’ts to help you care for your leather furniture between our professional services.
1. Never use Soap including oil soap and saddle soap on your leather furniture, it can stain and darken the leather. Even mild soap can cause damage. Soap removes the oil which can cause your leather to become brittle, and dry. If you wash your furniture with soap and then try to moisturize by adding oil you run the risk of the oil causing permanent stains.
3. Avoid placing your leather furniture in direct sunlight or next to air conditioners or heating. Extreme temperatures can cause leather to crack and dry out.
4. Blot spills as quickly as possible using a clean, preferably white terry cloth towel. Sprinkle talcum powder or baking powder on grease or oil stain to help absorb it.
5. If you have just purchased leather furniture, contact Steam Green Carpet Cleaning for immediate protection with a professionally applied leather protector. Keep your furniture free of dust by occasionally wiping with a damp cloth.
Some of the most common questions asked by our Steam Green Carpet Cleaning customers are:
– “Do leather furniture manufactures recommend professional cleaning? And if yes, how often?” Yes, manufactures recommend professional cleaning every 6-12 months.
– “What types of leather does Steam Green Cleaning Clean?” Our highly skilled technicians are specially trained to clean all kinds of leather, including pigmented, suede, nubuck and aniline.
– “What is the difference between my household cleaner and your professional cleaning system?” Most household cleaners contain silicones and other chemical compounds that can damage your furniture. Your Steam Green Carpet Cleaning professional will use a three step process. Step one begins with applying and removing a specialized cleanser to remove the dirt and other soiling from your furniture. Step two, the leather is then heated and treated to allow our carefully applied moisturizers to absorb into the leather leaving it soft and supple. Step three, the leather is reheated and a protector is applied to fill in the cracks where soil can settle and become trapped. The leather protector also helps to prevent future damage. All three steps are completed by our fully trained leather care professionals.
