Leather upholstery has a long history of being one of the premier coverings for fine furniture. It has also been the preferred choice of manufacturers of prestige vehicles. It is extremely durable and gives a sense of luxury and style. Most modern leathers are coated with a pigmented coating and a clear protective topcoat. However like any surface covering leather will over a period of time attract a build-up of dirt and soil. Natural body oils, perspiration and other contaminants can add to the problem and cause a gradual breakdown in the surface coatings. This can be the beginning of a process of deterioration and ultimately cracking and severe damage. Expensive recovering is often the only alternative at this late stage. Colortex technicians are trained in the cleaning and maintenance of leather. It is important that correct cleaning procedures are followed in the care of your expensive piece of furniture. We use only industry approved products that have been manufactured specifically for the cleaning of leather. The use of non-industry products of which there are many can result in the removal of the protective clear top coat and even pigments. This can cause severe colour loss and the eventual break down of the leather. As part of our professional cleaning service we are more than happy to give you whatever advice is needed for the ongoing maintenance of your leather furniture. We also have product available for your ongoing maintenance.
