LEATHER FURNITURE CLEANINGProfessional Leather Cleaning Service in Kansas City
Gentle & Effective Leather Furniture Cleaning
Chem-Dry is one of the leading companies in the carpet and upholstery cleaning service industry. McGeorge Brothers Chem-Dry also offers outstanding services in leather furniture cleaning in Kansas City. Not only do we clean leather, our services include leather maintenance and even restoration. Over time, oils, perspiration, and other spills work their way into your leather furniture. Most cleaning products currently on the furniture cleaning market are not appropriate for leather because they can actually break down leather finishes, leading to dryness and cracking. Chem-Dry leather cleaning products are not only safe but are extremely effective for cleaning & restoring your leather furniture. With regular cleaning, you can help prevent unnecessary wear and tear and keep your leather furniture looking its best.
Causes of Leather Deterioration
- Oils and Grease: Body oils from humans and animals easily attach and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and arm rests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.
- Atmospheric Soils: Consider the dust you see that builds up on a coffee table or desk over a week. This same dust is being deposited on your leather. In addition to the dust, airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants are present, to some degree, in every home.
- Common Soils: These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside. Like sand or dirt and fibers from plants. Outside dirt is brought into your home by adults, kids, and pets, and attaches to the leather every time the furniture is used.
- Dyes and Inks: The ink from newspapers is easily and accidentally transferred to leather. Your clothes, primarily types of denim, can also transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. The ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist can’t be forgotten either.
Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts, and Fading
Over time, you are sure to experience some of the common problems associated with all leather furniture. Our Kansas City Chem-Dry Certified Technicians are trained to address these all of these leather couch and chair problems. McGeorge Brothers Chem-Dry has 60 stock pigment colors similar to ones commonly used in the leather tanning process. This enables us to repair the inevitable scrape or scratch on protected leather furniture. Additionally, we are also able to revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.
How Often Do I Clean My Leather?
A regular furniture cleaning schedule, including professional cleaning, is recommended 1-2 times per year. 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® available from McGeorge Brothers Chem-Dry in Kansas City.
