Leather Furniture Cleaning

Do you like the word “cleaning”?  When we think of cleaning, we can sometimes think of a rigorous painful experience; perhaps when you think of cleaning windows, cleaning blinds, or even cleaning electronics.  Cleaning your leather though, that is actually easier than you may think.  Here are a few steps to cleaning your leather furniture

Step 1.

Obtain a preferred cloth.  Get your favorite dry cloth and then dust your leather furniture.  Doing this will remove the dust that has accumulated and may even help the furniture to look better.

Step 2.

Obtain a vacuum cleaner.  Now that you have your vacuum cleaner vacuum out an crevices or cracks in your leather furniture.  This will keep all of the little dirt particles from possibly damaging your leather.

By regularly following these two basic steps you can keep your leather clean.  Also, remember that you should wipe up spills right away so they don’t turn into problems in the future.  Also, doing this will help your leather furniture last longer and reduce the chance of you needing a leather repair and restoration service.

Leather care v. leather repair

One of the best ways to ensure that you don’t need leather repair in the first place is to take good care of your leather right now!  Try following these easy steps:

Taking Care of Your Leather

1.  If your material happens to get a spill on it, let it air dry at room temperature after you have soaked up the majority of the moisture.  Do not panic and apply heat (e.g. hair dryers) to the leather; the best thing to do is allow the leather to air dry at room temperature.  Attempts to quickly dry the leather using heat may do more damage than good.

2.  Keep your leather moisturized.  You bought the furniture, in part, because of its plush, beautiful appearance.  Keeping leather that way requires a little effort.  There are many conditioners and other products on the market that help keep your leather looking, smelling, and feeling amazing.  Moisturizing products will prevent your material from drying out and cracking, thus preventing the need for leather repair in the future.

3.  Keep it clean!  When your leather gets dirty from use, make sure it gets cleaned.  Cleaning your leather will ensure that you prevent microscopic particles, including tiny rocks and other abrasive materials, from damaging your leather.  Over time, if not cleaned regularly, these tiny pieces of leather-harming material can damage your furniture, eventually leading to the need for leather repair.

These are just a few tips that, if followed, could help prevent your from needing a repair in the first place.

Types of Leather Damage Part 2

Previously, we considered punctures and scratches in your leather.  But, there is more that can happen to your furniture!  Have you ever walked past your leather furniture while carrying scissors or a knife?  If you have, you may have experienced a tear in your leather.  A tear occurs when something sharp contacts your leather furniture.  As a result, you may need leather repair.  A tear can be one of the most visually unappealing types of damage your leather can receive; they are sometimes long, always ugly, and generally very sad to look at.

Don’t live with a piece of furniture that you find embarrassing and frustrating.  There are several options for leather repair in Houston, but when you call Leatherman, you are trusting your furniture to a family owned and operated company, experienced in all aspects of leather repair and restoration.  See some of what we are able to do for your leather furniture.  Click the chat box to chat now.  Or, you can give us a call or send us an email.

Types of leather damage part 1

Picture the scene.  You just got your new leather sofa broken in and you’re feeling great.  You love the fact that after a long day at work, you can relax on your couch.  One day, you get home to discover that Fido, who knows he isn’t supposed to be on the couch, not only got on, but had a party on your leather furniture!  As a result, you see that your beloved couch now has several punctures and scratches.

Scratches and punctures are just two types of damage that can occur on leather.  A puncture happens when too many pounds per square inch are exerted in a point on your leather, causing the leather to give way and a hole to form.

A scratch is pretty self explanatory.  This can occur when Fido, Junior, or one of any number of creatures with nails gets your leather under its claws.  This can cause your leather to look inconsistent in appearance, which detracts from its overall aesthetic appeal.

Leather repair is going to be your best bet at this point.  It’s cheaper than you may think and it’s also an exact science.  We can repair your leather and make it look new again; we can even get Fido out of the “dog house” and back into your good books!  Find out how by chatting with us now!

To repair or not to repair your leather…

…That is the question.  When you buy leather goods, you make a serious investment.  Sometimes, this investment costs hundreds or even thousands of dollars.  As a result, it may be upsetting when after several years of good use and wear and tear, your leather doesn’t look like it used to.  Do not despair!  If this describes your situation, don’t run out and spend thousands of dollars all over again just to have new-looking furniture.  Chances are, your leather furniture is just fine.  Leather repair in Houston, TX may be just what you’re looking for.  If so, you’ve come to the right place.  Take a look at our gallery to see some of what we have done recently; you may be surprised what Leatherman can do for you!
