Leather upholstery isn’t just gorgeous, it’s also durable, long-lasting, and pretty easy to care for (if you ask us)! When properly cared for, leather can last a lifetime. It’s one of the toughest materials and is actually the most recommended furniture upholstery material if you have kids and pets because you won’t risk any of those permanent stains. However, the cleaning process is specific and requires a little more involved than most. The Steam Team is here for you and your leather conditioning and cleaning!
From the Beginning
With new furniture, it’s easy to want to jump right into enjoying your new couch or recliner, but before you begin relaxing let’s make sure a few things are taken care of. First and foremost, leather needs to be conditioned in order to keep its elasticity over time, so it’s important that it’s conditioned initially as well. From there on, every six to twelve months (depending on what type of climate you live in) your leather should be conditioned.
Next, before there are any paws or cute little hands all over your new furniture, make sure there’s a layer of protectant over the leather. While leather is one of the toughest materials used in upholstery, it’s always a good idea to have something for extra protection.
Last (but certainly not least), the best time to learn about commercial cleaning products and leather is before you need to use them- like now, when you’ve just moved your new furniture in. Avoid any commercial cleaners that aren’t specifically made for leather as they could cause significant damage to the material.
The Steam Team can effectively and efficiently remove dirt, grease, and debris from your leather furniture, and then condition it to restore it to its like-new condition. And the best part? ‘We’ll clean it correctly the very first time. For more information on leather cleaning, conditioning, and other cleaning and restoration projects, visit our website today!
