What Causes Leather Deterioration?

  1. Oils and Grease: Body oils from both humans and animals hold on to leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather couches.
  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.
  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

Great American Chem-Dry technicians have been trained in handling leather issues of all kinds. We have access to 60 stock pigment colors similar to the ones used in the tanning process to repair the inevitable scrape or scratch on protected leathers with an accurate color match. We can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.

How Often Should I Clean My Leather Furniture?

You should be regularly dusting and vacuuming your furniture. A professional cleaning and conditioning should happen once every 6-12 months.

Between professional cleanings, you can maintain your leather furniture by using 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 us more about it.
