Leather Cleaning in Fort Smith

Chem-Dry is one of the leading companies in the carpet and upholstery cleaning industry. Elmer’s Chem-Dry also offers outstanding leather furniture cleaning. Not only do we clean leather, but our services also include leather maintenance and restoration. Did you know that a lot of cleaning products actually cause leather damage? That’s why we have our own line of safe leather cleaning products. We are dedicated to becoming a trustworthy leather cleaner in Fort Smith without cutting any corners.

Over time, oils, perspiration, and other spills seep into your leather furniture. Most furniture cleaners are not ideal for leather because they can actually break down the finish. This can quickly lead to dryness or cracking.

Elmer’s Chem-Dry leather cleaning is both safe and extremely effective for cleaning and restoring leather furniture. Scuffs, scratches, and fading are soothed, cleaned, and revitalized. Additionally, regular cleaning helps prevent unnecessary wear and keeps your leather furniture looking its best.

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. This 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. This same dust is being deposited on your leather. Additionally to dust, there are airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants present, to some degree, in every home.
  3. Common Soils : These soils include common dirt tracked in from outside and sand and fibers from plants. The fibers are brought in the home by adults, kids, and pets and attach to the leather every time it is used.
  4. Dyes and Inks : The inks from newsprint in newspapers are deposited on leather. Clothes, such as denim ,can transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. The direct ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist can’t be forgotten either. 

Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts, and Fading

Elmer’s Chem-Dry technicians have been trained in handling leather issues of all kinds. We have access to 60 stock pigment colors that are similar to the ones used in the tanning process so we can repair inevitable scrapes and scratches. We can often match the color seamlessly on your protected leathers.

Chem-Dry can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers. Schedule an appointment and let us know your concerns. We want to provide you with the best leather cleaning in Fort Smith.

How Often Should I Clean My Leather Furniture?

You should regularly dust and vacuum your furniture. It’s also important to professionally clean and condition it every 6-12 months.

Between professional cleanings, you can maintain your leather furniture by using Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner. You can also rejuvenate the protection with Chem-Dry Protection Cream. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit. Ask us more about it.
