How Can I Keep My Leather Looking Great?
You might be wondering if it’s time to get your leather furniture cleaned.

If it’s been longer than that, call up your Sonoma leather cleaners today to book your appointment!
To preserve the health and beauty of your leather in between professional cleanings, you can clean your leather with the Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner and rejuvenate the protection with Chem-Dry Protection Cream. You can get both products from your Chem-Dry leather cleaning technicians, just ask at your next appointment.
Common Causes of Leather Damage
If you have leather furniture in your home, you likely know that it’s different from other types of upholstery. Not only is it beautiful with a unique texture, but your leather furniture is more prone to damage than other furniture. If you are looking to protect your furniture and keep it looking good for years to come, you should know about the most common sources of leather damage so you can avoid them.
–Oils and Grease: Body oils from both humans and animals attach and hold onto leather. You might notice this especially on the head and armrests of your leather furniture, as that’s where bare skin contacts the leather the most. These oils might seem harmless and they build up very slowly, but they can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather couches over time.
–Atmospheric Soils: Think about all of the dust that builds up on a coffee table or bookcase over a week’s time. This same dust also ends up on your leather, it’s just less noticeable. In addition to this dust, there are airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants present, to some degree, in every home. All of this settles onto your leather and can cause wear and damage to the upholstery over time.
–Common Soils: These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants. The soils hitch a ride on your clothes, shoes, skin, and your pets’ fur and are deposited onto the leather every time the furniture is used.
–Dyes and Inks: The inks from newsprint in newspapers can easily be transferred onto your leather. Clothing such as denim (especially brand new jeans) can transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. Kids are also known for leaving ink in furniture when they doodle where they aren’t supposed to. All of these sources of dyes and ink can stain your leather.
REGULAR MAINTENANCE CAN PREVENT DETERIORATION
Some of these sources of damage might seem unavoidable. So what can you do? Luckily, regularly scheduled leather furniture cleaning can make a huge difference in the appearance and health of your leather furniture! A leather furniture cleaner can remove oil, soil, dirt, and more that might damage your leather before it becomes an issue. They can also often remove stains before they become permanent if called quickly. Moreso than other furniture, leather furniture requires regular maintenance and cleaning in order to stay looking great. Luckily, a good leather furniture cleaner like North American Chem-Dry in Sonoma can extend the life of your leather furniture by years.
