Leather upholstery is both sophisticated and beautiful. It can create a statement in your home. However, over time, leather furniture requires regular upholstery cleaning and maintenance.
Tips For Cleaning Leather Upholstery At Home
Every 6 months it is recommended to clean your leather upholstery. To wash it use a mixture of mild soap or detergent and distilled water. Detergents such as gentle mixes for washing delicate clothes, or a saddle soap that contains oils and waxes will help maintain the leather. Distilled water is free from chemical contaminants, such as chlorine. Wash thoroughly using a soft cloth, (microfiber cloths work really well) paying attention to the head rests and arm rests. Use a dry cloth in wiping over any moisture. In order to keep your leather couch looking good over time, use a reputable leather conditioner. Always test any leather cleaning product on a small, inconspicuous area area before cleaning a large, visible area.
Stain removal on leather needs to be carefully performed as you can damage the surface of the leather. Never use leather cleaners that contain oils, soaps or detergents. Due to the nature of leather it is probably advisable to contact a professional upholstery cleaning company.

I have a rental at Carindale in Brisbane which was left in very poor condition, to the point where I was looking at replacing the carpet costing around $3000. As this is a rental investment I found it hard to find that sort of money quickly to get another person to rent it. I call Matthew from Shield Carpet Tile and Pest and for a very good price and three hours later I had clean, dry carpet and filled the rental the following week. Shield really got me out of trouble fast. Gary T, Carindale, Brisbane.
