Leather Cleaning

What Makes Us Different?

Chet was a master leather cleaner and restorer and received many years of training and experience. He has passed these procedures and skills down to our expert cleaning technicians, so they understand the art of leather care.

Leather needs to be cleaned and properly conditioned to restore the essential oils that tanneries originally used to ensure that it lasts a long time. Without proper maintenance, it dries out and develops micro-cracks, fades prematurely, and will ultimately split and be damaged beyond repair.

Inspect ↗

We begin by testing the leather to determine its type: Protected leather, Aniline leather or Nubuck leather. Although we clean all three types, the cleaning process for each is slightly varied.

Clean ↗

We use products and methods that clean deep into the pores and grain of the leather while enhancing its natural characteristics. This ensures that your leather is never dried out or damaged

Condition ↗

The leather is nourished with the same agents used during the original tanning process. Essential oils lost through natural aging, sunlight and use are replenished to enhance the look, feel and most importantly the integrity of the leather.

Rinse ↗

A special PH-balanced rinse agent is used. This ensures that leather is returned to its most favorable PH condition and all cleaning residue and soil are completely removed.

Material We Clean ↗

We expertly clean and condition – Aniline, Nubuck, Suede, Hair on Hide, Eel, Python, and other difficult and exotic leathers.
