How it Works: Leather Care and Cleaning

Los Angeles is home to some of the most breathtaking beaches in the world. But when you head out for a day in the sun, it’s usually a good idea to put on sunscreen to protect your skin. Just like your skin, leather requires regular cleaning, moisturizing, and care. Without it, leather will start to fade, crack, and lose the healthy glow that we all love.

Just like your skin, leather requires regular cleaning, moisturizing, and care. Without it, leather will start to fade, crack, and lose the healthy glow that we all love.

For leather care and cleaning, Los Angeles customers usually require a few of the following services.

  • Cleaning – The first step our leather experts will do is to thoroughly clean the leather. We use non-toxic cleaners and gentle solvents that remove dirt, oil, and other contaminants. It is critical to remove those layers of grime to expose the leather so that when we start the restoration process we’re actually working on the leather itself.
  • Conditioning – After the cleaning process, we will use a conditioning solution to restore the elasticity, strength, and “youthfulness” of the leather. When leather gets dry it isn’t as comfortable to sit on or attractive to look at. Conditioning the leather restores that flexibility so your leather apparel is softer, your leather sofas is more enjoyable to sit on, and your handbags look stunning.
  • Restoration – From there, our leather craftsmen can evaluate the leather and determine whether or not the leather needs further restoration like dying. With our dyes, we’re able to match the faded or stained sections to the original colors so that it is a seamless match.
  • Repair – For most scratches, small rips or tears, and scuffs, our leather craftsmen are often able to fill them in or repair them so they look fabulous.

With leather care and cleaning, Los Angeles customers can not only rejuvenate and revitalize their leather with a fresh new look, but they may also be able to extend its life. Give us a call today at 213-500-6220 or send us some pictures of your damaged leather for a free quote.

Dyes and Solutions We Use for Leather Care and Cleaning

Los Angeles residents often ask us about the products we use to clean and dye their leather. Many of our customers are concerned about the toxicity of the products we use since they will spend a lot of time in contact with their sofas, jackets, or handbags.

  • Cleaners – In order to remove these stains and clean the leather, our experts use safe and environmentally friendly cleaning products. However, leather is highly absorbent and soaks up most liquids and oils that it comes in contact with. Because of that, we often have to use solvents to remove these ultra-tough stains and get your leather looking fabulous again. But we always use low-toxicity solvents like acetone to accomplish this.
  • Dyes – Another main concern for our customers is the types of dyes we use. They are often worried that the dyes will transfer to their children, grandkids, or pets. But we only use water-based, non-toxic dyes on all of our work. Our dyes produce incredible results and are totally safe.

Los Angeles customers absolutely love that they can call us and have our leather experts come to their location. Whether it’s a leather-covered desk at your office, your airplane hangar, boat harbor, or your home, we are more than happy to come to you.

The Materials and Supplies We Use for Leather Furniture Repair

Los Angeles is home to some of the healthiest and most environmentally-conscious people in the world. That’s why we try to use the safest products whenever we can. All of our dyes are water-based and non-toxic so they’re safe for pets and kids. We also use non-toxic cleaners and leather conditioners. Of course, in order to deliver the premium service that our customers demand, we often have to strip the leather.

Here’s why that’s important: transporting your leather goods to us is impossible, like in the case of a boat interior. But even more importantly, you take a huge risk in causing more damage to your leather my loading in on a truck and driving it over.
