Leather cleaning and conditioning can definately not be a steam cleaning process at all. In fact if any type of steam cleaning is applied to genuine leather it will probably permanently damage the product we are dealing with. For this reason if anyone people claiming to be a professional leather cleaners pulls out a soil extractor to do the job don’t let them near your products at all.
There are many different types of leather on the market today like Aniline, Pigmented and Nubuck. Most of these leather types are fairly durable. If leather is well looked after and maintained by professional leather cleaners it can last a life time. Leather cleaning is not a process we recommend you do yourselves unfortunately as there are special products and techniques required to do the leather cleaning job properly. We realise this can sometimes be difficult as many different products can be made of leather. Anything from the furniture in your home, to the seats in your car, the jacket hanging in your wardrobe to the shoes in your cupboard. Even a ladies favourite hand bag or wallet may start to look a bit grubby and require leather cleaning. We are leather cleaners who will do the leather cleaning job no matter what the item you request be done.
Having us around to do a job allows us not only to do the leather cleaning itself but to teach you some of the facts about leather. We show you how to maintain and look after it in an attempt to extend it’s lifespan. It is for example extremely bad to have your leather anywhere in direct sunlight as it fades. If for some reason your leather gets wet never try and dry it fast otherwise you can damage the shape.

Remember leather can be very porous so there is plenty of opportunity for unwanted dirt and oils to settle.
