For many there is no upholstery surface as satisfying as leather. Leather upholstered furniture is ever more popular and there is now a myriad of hides, finishes and colours. Unfortunately, many who purchase leather know little about caring for it. Some sales people advise that leather is natural and will not require professional cleaning, this is not true.
If your leather has become soiled, donít risk damage by having a go yourself with saddle soap, silicone based products, cleaning solvents, furniture polish, oils, waxes, abrasive cleaners, ammonia based products or general stain removers, call an NCCA qualified cleaner. And yes, we positively know that all of the above products have been used on leather upholstery. However, the NCCA member that visits you will probably have their own stories about problems caused by well-intentioned DIY or poorly qualified cleaning technicians.
An NCCA member will advise what can be done and how successful the results are likely to be. He will test a small area to be sure that you will be happy with the results and that no unexpected damage or colour loss will occur. A number of NCCA members also specialise in re-colouring and repairs so if you have a problem, whether it is a scratch, cut, rip or hole, they will be pleased to assist. If your leather is greasy, faded, dried-out or stained there are also procedures that can improve the appearance and alleviate the problem.
If you want to maintain that like-new look or bring an old item back to life, professional help is at hand. Do not make the mistake of assuming that the advert in the free newspaper guarantees a trained and qualified operative. Do the sensible thing and contact an NCCA member.
