Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaning
Whichever type of leather furniture or upholstery that you have it will require regular cleaning & maintenance. People are sometimes misinformed that leather furniture or upholstery requires little or no cleaning or maintenance this is NOT the case.
We sit on our upholstery everyday sometimes for long periods of time and like any other fabric, leather over time will become dirty, tired looking and the colour can appear duller, Prestige Cleaning Services can provide a specialist and professional Leather upholstery cleaning service.

We continually assess our technicians and ensure that they regularly undertake further professional training to keep them up to date with new industry methods, techniques and cleaning products.
The common reasons that leather upholstery cleaning is needed are detailed below:
Oils and Grease
Over time as you sit on and use your leather upholstery, body oils from your skin and hair are regularly transferred onto head and arm rests and in the summer months often to the cushions as well.
If you have pets they can often rub along the skirt of your leather upholstery leaving oil from their coats on the leather furniture. This over time can cause the leather sofas or chairs becoming discoloured and looking faded as soiling sticks to the oil.
It is inevitable that we bring in dirt, sand and plant fibres from outside. These are brought into the home by us all including our pets if we have them. The result of this is that a film creates over the surface of the leather upholstery sticking to the transferred oils making your leather upholstery in need of cleaning.
House dust which continually builds up around your home is deposited on your leather upholstery and sticks to the oils. This builds up a layer of dust which you can’t see but eventually results in dull and fading colours.
Dyes and Inks
Dye transfer from newspapers and particularly denim clothing can also cause a problem especially on lighter coloured leather upholstery. A pen that has leaked or children drawing and putting the pen down on the leather sofa or chairs can often leave ink marks. Many of these marks can be removed when the cleaning of your leather furniture is carried out.
How Often Should I Clean My Leather Upholstery?
To ensure that your Leather upholstery stays in good condition and lasts for a long time, we recommend that your leather upholstery is professionally cleaned each year. A yearly leather upholstery cleaning schedule will without doubt keep your sofa and chairs cleaner, fresher and make sure you have many years of enjoyment from your leather upholstery.
Leather Upholstery Protection
As leather upholstery is a large financial investment it is worth considering having your leather upholstery protected after it has been cleaned. The leather protector that we can apply to you leather upholstery provides a barrier to prevent soils and spillages from penetrating the leather which therefore allows affective cleaning, keeping the leather upholstery in good condition and extending the lifecycle of your leather upholstery.
