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 Damages Leather?

It’s normal for your leather furniture to accumulate body oils, perspiration, and other contaminants over time. It’s imperative to choose the right leather cleaning products. Be cautious, some on the market may not be effective or suitable for the task. In fact, using store-bought or DIY cleaning products can even harm your leather by breaking down its finishes. This unfortunately can result in dryness and cracking. But don’t worry! Our professional cleaning in Fort Smith, AR is safe and highly effective for cleaning and restoring your leather furniture.

The Main Causes of Leather Deterioration

Oils & Grease

Body and hair oils from your family members and pets cling to leather. These oils transfer especially easily to head cushions and armrests and can damage the finish of your leather furniture.

Atmospheric Soils

Think about how often you dust your coffee tables, desks, and shelves. The same amount of dust that is deposited there is on your leather furniture and can damage its finish. 

 Common Soils

Dirt, sand, and plant fibers are tracked into your home by adults, kids, and pets. Once inside, they attach to the leather every time your furniture is used and can cause stains and scratches.

Dyes & Ink

Did you know that dyes in your clothes such as denim can stain your leather furniture? This process is called dye transfer and can be difficult to remove.

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 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!
