Leather sofas and armchairs are a stylish, and often expensive, investment when furnishing a room. Leather has its own unique problems when it comes to removing stains due to the fact that it is a completely different kind of material to that of fabric or textile. As well as the usual common spillages and soiling, issues we have dealt with in the past have included staining caused by dye from jeans and the build up of hair oil and sweat which has become embedded in the material.
Leather is essentially skin and as such it is important to treat it like skin. Fundamentally, this means making sure that it is moisturised. The use of a damp cloth will suffice in some cases, but it will not be effective in dislodging soiling that has become engrained into the leather and has left the material discoloured and damaged.
Attempting leather cleaning yourself and trying to remove staining without the appropriate professional equipment could take you hours and give you quite a work out! We have equipment specially designed to clean leather with a minimum amount of fuss and the maximum clean.
Earlier this year (January 2016), we attended a three-day specialist leather course where we deepened our understanding of cleaning and minor repairs concerning all types of leather.
