Chem-Dry, the world's largest carpet and upholstery cleaner, offers the absolute best services in Leather Furniture cleaning and maintenance. Over time, body oils, perspiration, skin acids and other soils can work their way into the leather. Many cleaning products currently on the market are not appropriate for leather, and may break down leather finishes, leading to dryness and cracking. Chem-Dry leather products are safe and effective for your leather furniture. With regular cleaning by a Chem-Dry Certified Leather Specialist, you can prevent undue wear and keep your leather furniture looking great.
Causes of Leather Deterioration
- Oils and Grease : Body oils from both humans and animals attach and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and arm rests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.
- 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 you add airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants that are present, to some degree, in every home.
- 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.
- Dyes and Inks : The inks from newsprint in newspapers can readily be deposited on leather. Clothes such as denims 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.
Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts and Fading
Over the life of your furniture you are bound to experience some of the common problems associated with all leather furniture. Our Chem-Dry Certified Technicians are trained to address these problems. Chem-Dry has 60 stock pigment colors similar to the ones used in the tanning process to repair the inevitable scrape or scratch on protected leathers. We can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.
How Often Do I Clean My Leather
A regular cleaning schedule including professional cleaning 4 times a year is recommended.
In between professional cleanings you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture by cleaning with Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner and rejuvenating the protection with Chem-Dry Protection Cream. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit.
Our goal is to provide you with the best leather furniture cleaning and restoration needs. Our trained technicians will provide you with a free, no-obligation quote for our services and provide tips and products to help you maintain your furniture between scheduled cleanings.

Everything Looks Great - by Mara S.
, January 30, 2018
5/ 5 stars ★★★★★"I have a kitten with a penchant for pee. On my favorite vintage leather couch. I have already had it treated before, and I think it was done quite well, but the kitten went again! Nick came over, he went over it super-extra thoroughly, even the underside, the rug beneath it, and in every crevice. He also found some trouble spots on my other rug and we grabbed those too. Everything was cleaned *and* sanitized, dried well, and looks great. Nick was punctual, smart, efficient, and lovely to talk to. He even had some insight into how I could help keep the kitten from peeing in my couch in the future. Fingers crossed!"
Professional & Focused On Customer Service - by Mary A.

5/ 5 stars ★★★★★"I've been a loyal Chem Dry customer for about 20 years. Bob and his crew are professional and very focused on customer service. Bob schedules appointments really quickly and his crew work efficiently. I've had stains on my carpet that they've worked hard (and successfully!) to treat. I also have my living room furniture cleaned and scotch-guarded and I'm convinced that that regular treatment has greatly extended the "new" look and condition of the furniture. I recommend this service!!!"
