The Art & Science of Leather Cleaning
Cleaning leather is a combination of art, science, and craftsmanship. Since friction is the enemy of leather, we don’t clean with powerful machines. Instead, we give your precious leather a boutique-style, hands-on cleaning with specialized products that ensure a safe and effective cleaning. Our cleaning products are scientifically developed to obtain a balance of cleaning and conditioning. The cleaner gently removes soil and the conditioner helps restore the leather’s supple feel, revitalizing its integrity. Protect Your Investment Leather requires more care than most other textiles. Experts recommend having your leather professionally cleaned every six months to remove contaminants and replenish nutrients with conditioning. In between cleanings, here are seven tips to help you protect and prolong the life of your leather furnishings. Seven Tips for Prolonging the Life of Your Leather Furniture 1) Sunlight. Be aware of how much direct contact your leather furnishings have with sunlight and heat sources, as too much exposure can cause the leather to fade and dry out. 2) Proper Cleaning. When cleaning your leather, avoid using excessive water, friction, and harsh soaps or detergents, as they will degrade the leather. 3) Dust Frequently. Believe it or not, dust particulates absorb natural oils out of your leather. Dusting frequently with a microfiber cloth will help prevent this. 4) Rotate Cushions. To prevent cracks and wrinkling, rotate the cushions of your leather furniture frequently. 5) Dye Transfers. Be aware of items that may transfer dye onto the leather. Items such as magazines, books, newspapers, and even blue jeans all have vagrant dyes that can transfer onto your leather. 6) Wet or Damp Clothing. Never leave wet or damp clothing on your leather furniture – it can cause major, unrepairable damage. 7)Professional Cleaning. Schedule a professional cleaning appointment with the experts at Modernistic every six months to keep your leather healthy, clean, and supple!
