Leather furniture is a great investment. It's tough, elegant, and can last three to four times longer than a similar piece of furniture with cloth upholstery.
The secret to leather's long-lasting great looks is in the care and maintenance, which is different than the cleaning for cloth upholstery. Your leather furniture is covered in a natural hide, which needs to have its moisture replaced regularly to keep it supple and to prevent cracking, flaking and other damage. Professional leather cleaning is the number one way to maintain the leather furniture in your home or business.
Proper leather care and cleaning depends on what type of leather was used to upholster the furniture. Most leather furniture is made from protected leather, which has a durable coating on top and is very resistant to stains and spills. This is the type of leather upholstery that is easiest to care for.
Aniline leather is the most natural looking leather, and is usually made from the finest quality hides (it is not pigmented so any flaws or scars on the leather would be readily visible). Aniline absorbs spills, dirt, and stains easily, so extra care must be taken with aniline to clean the dirt out of the leather, but gently so as not to damage it.
Our leather care experts clean leather upholstery by hand, massaging our specialty leather cleaner deep into the grain with a natural fiber brush. Once the leather is as clean as we can make it, we restore the natural moisture balance of the leather with an intensive moisturizing and conditioning treatment. From leather dining chairs to couches, recliners, and sectional sofas, we clean, condition and protect leather furniture in all shapes, colors and sizes.
