Why Use Chem-Dry for Leather Cleaning?

leather cleaning in Fort Smith, ArChem-Dry of Crawford and Sebastian County is part of the largest carpet and upholstery cleaning business in the world. Because thousands of leather products have been found to actually be unsafe for leather, we got to work creating our own cleaning products. We were dedicated to becoming a trustworthy leather cleaner in Fort Smith, AR without cutting corners. 

We felt it was our responsibility to find and provide leather products that are not only safe but effective cleaning agents for leather and furniture. Scuffs, scratched, and fading can be soothed, cleaned, and revitalized. With regular cleaning from a leather specialist, like Chem-Dry of Crawford and Sebastian County, you can prevent undue wear and keep your leather furniture looking the same as the day you bought it for years to come. 

What Causes Leather Deterioration?

  1. Oils and Grease : Body oils from both humans and animals hold on to leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather couches.
  2. Atmospheric Soils : Consider the dust that builds up on a coffee table or desk over a week’s time. This same dust is being deposited on your leather. In addition to this dust there are airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants present, to some degree, in every home.
  3. Common Soils : These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants. The fibers are brought in the home by adults, kids and pets and attach to the leather every time the furniture is used.
  4. Dyes and Inks : The inks from newsprint in newspapers can readily be deposited on leather. Clothes such as denim can transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. The direct ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist should not be forgotten.
