Chem-Dry’s Certified Leather Specialists
Leather furniture will last 4-5 times longer than man-made fibers and fabrics if properly maintained. That’s where we come in! Short Stop Chem-Dry’s Leather Restoration Specialists are trained to know the best care for your specific type of leather. These include:
Aniline – This type of leather is often referred to as Unprotected, Pure, Naked, or Natural.
Nubuck – Also referred to as Suede, Distressed, Chaps, or Bomber leather.
Protected – Commonly referred to as Painted, Everyday, Pigmented, or Semi-Aniline leather.
Our Chem-Dry Leather Restoration Technicians will first properly identify your type of leather. Next, they will carefully clean and repair your leather with the appropriate products. We’ll also protect your leather against future damage.
What Causes Dirty Leather?
There are 4 main factors that affect the cleanliness of your leather furniture:
- Common Soils/Dirt – This includes dirt tracked inside from regular foot traffic and the fibers and dirt from household plants.
- Grease & Oils – Body oils from both humans and animals cling to leather furniture. These oils can be easily transferred from the hair and body to armrests and head cushions, causing damage to your leather furniture’s protective finish.
- Ink and Dyes – Ink from books and newspapers transfer easily to leather. Dye from denim jeans and other clothing also deposit onto your furniture. Ink can also be transferred directly from a pen or marker. (A toddler would probably be the culprit here!)
- Atmospheric Oils – We’ve all seen how quickly dust builds up in our homes. Your leather furniture is no exception! Airborne cooking oils and pollution can also seep into your furniture.
Because these contaminants are commonly found in our homes, we recommend having your leather furniture professionally cleaned every 6 months to keep them at bay.
Can Scratches, Scuffs, Fading, and Cuts Be Repaired?
Yes! Our technicians are trained to treat and repair various types of damages to your leather furniture. Short Stop Chem-Dry has over 60 common stock pigment colors to repair scratches, scrapes, fading, and other imperfections. Your leather furniture will be restored to look new again!
How Often Should I Clean My Leather Furniture?
We recommend a professional cleaning for your leather furniture twice a year. Use Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner and Chem-Dry Protection Cream in between these cleanings to protect and maintain the leather as much as possible. Ask your local Short Stop Chem-Dry representative how you can purchase these products in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit.
