Leather Care Telford

Leather Cleaning Specialists for Shropshire

We offer leather cleaning and leather restoration services in Shropshire for your leather sofas and chairs. We can help to keep your leather sofa looking as good as new, avoiding the cost of replacement.

A leather suite in Telford Shropshire was restored to a pride of place position in a household recently. We provide similar leather care for chairs and sofas throughout Staffordshire, Stoke, Stafford and Cannock plus towns and villages in between.

Ingrained dirt and grease is not only unsightly, but can lead to cracks and then holes appearing. Dirt and grease will soak into bare leather and cannot easily be dealt with cost effectively. It would mean panel replacement to put right.

The process to correct this and restore the leather sofa was undertaken in the home, with no disruption to the daily routine, and the furniture was ready to use 2 hours later.

For all your leather suite cleaning enquiries, email Ian or telephone 07966 20 30 40.

Leather Sofa Restoration

An example of a scuff damaged leather sofa in Staffordshire.

This leather sofa was damaged during removal to a new home and repair work was initiated by the insurers.

The job was fairly straight forward, involving cleaning up the affected area, preparation, re-colouring and finally re-sealing the leather suite repair.

Upholstery Cleaning Tips

By staffordcarpet On November 22, 2011 No Comments

Upholstery cleaning is necessary to keep your suites in tip top condition and protect from stains over time.

Here’s some tips on sofa cleaning;

Why your sofa cushions should not be put in the domestic washing machine.

Zips found on suite cushions are not put there to facilitate ease of removal for washing.

They are sewn on so that the foam can be inserted and simply zipped up without the need to go back down the production line, and cost more to produce. It also makes it easy to replace the foam at a later stage.

The most common damage that occurs with natural textiles, is shrinkage; making the covers very difficult to put back on. When back on there is a pulling down at the sides causing a misshaped seat pad or back rest cushion. Certain agents contained in washing detergent can also result in faded cushions in relation to the frame.

A job encountered resulted in this photograph, where the red dye used in the trim piping bled and was absorbed by the main fabric, because the cushions were ‘put into the wash’.

In the picture, the back cushion has just been cleaned; dirt can still be seen on the arms.
