Preserve Leather Furniture with Elmer’s Chem-Dry

At Elmer’s Chem-Dry, we know leather furniture is an investment. That’s why we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure that our cleaning processes will clean and renew your leather furniture without harming it. We take pride in specializing in leather cleaning in Fort Smith, AR!

What Harms Leather?

Over time, body oils, perspiration, and other contaminants work their way into your leather furniture. Many leather cleaning products on the market are not suitable or effective for cleaning leather. In fact, some store-bought or DIY cleaning products may actually break down leather finishes, leading to dryness and cracking. Fortunately, our leather cleaning service in Fort Smith, AR is safe and extremely effective for cleaning and restoring your furniture.

The Main Causes of Leather Deterioration

Oils & Grease

Body oils from humans and animals attach and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and arm rests of the furniture. These oils can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.

Atmospheric Soils

Consider all 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! 

 Common Soils

Common soils include the 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 they attach to the leather every time the furniture is used.

Dyes & Ink

Did you know that the ink from newsprint in newspapers can stain leather? Clothes, such as denim, can also 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!

Dealing with Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts, and Fading

It’s inevitable that your leather couch, loveseat, or chair will experience some of the common problems associated with leather furniture. Luckily, our leather furniture cleaning in Fort Smith, AR addresses these issues. Our trained technicians will sit down with you, assess the damage, and then explain our process before cleaning and restoring your leather furniture. We have 60 stock pigment colors similar to the ones used in the tanning process, so we can effectively repair scrapes or scratches on your leather. We also have the ability to revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers!

How Often Should I Clean My Leather Furniture?

It’s recommended that your leather furniture gets a professional cleaning 1-2 times per year. In between professional leather cleanings, you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture by cleaning it with Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner® and protecting it with Chem-Dry Protection Cream®. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit® available at Elmer’s Chem-Dry!

Restore Your Leather Furniture

We look forward to making your leather sofa, ottoman, and more look shiny and new again!
