Leather Cleaning Process
- Identify the type of leather. This is the most important step as different leathers MUST be treated in different ways
- Establish areas of concern including spots, stains, ink, colour transfer, wear and damage
- Establish whether it is limited to leather cleaning or whether some degree of leather restoration is required
- Clean using a selection of differing products depending on leather type
- If cleaning is all that’s needed the process will be completed with the application of a protector to keep the leather in top condition
- Should any additional leather restoration be required the appropriate stain or pigment to match your leather will be mixed and the necessary repair work undertaken
- Following the restoration work being undertaken the leather will receive the correct finish before finally being protected to ensure your leather lasts longer
- Leather is everywhere in our lives but we generally treat it as if its indestructible. The reality is that like most things it needs regular cleaning to look its best.
The Rutland Cleaning Company is the only LTT Leather Technician accredited company in the Rutland area.
There are two main types of leather – aniline or pigment. The main differences are how the leather has been coloured but it does mean they require different leather cleaning and leather restoration techniques.
Most aniline leathers will be tan and brown and have a natural appearance. They are susceptible to staining from liquids or oils.
Pigment leathers come in a full range of colours but can suffer from scratches and other damage to the pigment surface. The surface can also wear so that it loses its colour.
Both types of leather will benefit from our leather cleaning, which in most cases will renovate the leather and its colour. If there are areas of damage then we can undertake leather restoration. This will normally involve the preparation of a matching stain or pigment. The damaged areas can then be repaired using various techniques before being re-coloured to match the surrounding area before finally being finished to match the rest of the item.
If you love your suite or handbag but would prefer it in a different colour then we can offer a full re colour service. After whatever treatment we have done for you we will finish the leather with a protector that will keep it looking beautiful for longer
