Leather Cleaning

Around the end of the 1990’s leather furniture became very popular . It was no longer only available to the more ‘well off ‘ . For a number  of reasons (not all good  ) the cost of leather furniture was such that it  was an option for most home owners.  More & more of our clients were purchasing leather.

We saw the need to be able to care for these suites . That did not mean just buying some leather cleaner & offering ‘professional ‘ leather cleaning – thats not the way we work !

We researched where to get trained in this field. In 2003 Mike started training at the Leather Technical and Training  centre in Harrogate under in our opinion a leading authority  in leather care , the late Andy Alcock.

It soon became apparent there was alot to learn ,but were glad we made the effort !-

  • Identifying leather types
  • Cleaning & protecting
  • Colour & finish repair
  • Minor cuts & scratches
  • Pigment recolour
  • Aniline colour restoration

Before you let anyone touch your leather furniture – check out their qualifications.

If it needs cleaning or you have finish problems give Mike a ring & let him advise on the best way  to sort it out.
