Chem-Dry, the world’s leading carpet and upholstery cleaner, offers premier services in Leather Furniture cleaning and maintenance. Leather furniture can be damaged over time by body oils, perspiration, skin acids and other soils. Many cleaning products are not safe for leather, and may break down finishes, leading to dryness and cracking in furniture. Chem-Dry leather products are safe and effective for your leather furniture. With regular cleaning by our Certified Leather Specialist, you can prevent undue wear and keep your leather furniture looking great for years to come.

Causes of Leather Deterioration

  1. Oils and Grease : From family members to pets, contact with skin and hair can leave behind body oils on your leather furniture. Regular leather furniture cleaning is required to prevent these oils from causing serious damage to a piece of furniture’s protective finish.
  2. Atmospheric Soils : Consider the dust that builds up on a coffee table or desk over the course of a week. This same dust is being deposited on your leather. Additionally, airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants exist in every home, to some degree, and collect on furniture.
  3. Common Soils : From dirt, to sand, to fibers from plants, the people and pets that come and go in your home bring a lot of soil with them. This soil attaches to leather furniture every time it is used.
  4. Dyes and Inks : Ink is a serious threat to leather. Subtle ink stains from newspaper, and more serious ink stains from leaky pens or artistic toddlers can harm leather. Dye transfer from clothing also poses a risk to your leather furniture. Regular cleaning can protect your couches from the buildup of inks and dyes.

How Often Should I Clean My Leather Furniture?

It is recommended that leather furniture is cleaned professionally 4 times per year.

Between professional cleanings, maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture by cleaning with Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner. Protect your furniture further with Chem-Dry Protection Cream. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit.
