Leather Cleaning – How To Clean Leather Professionally

To clean leather you need to use the Premium Leather Cleaner.

The Premium Leather Cleaner is a very effective cleaner that deep cleans into the grain removing all dirt and grime.

Spray the Premium Leather Cleaner onto a sponge and work into the leather in a circular motion, creating a foam as it cleans. This will lift all the dirt and grime away from the leather as it deep cleans into the grain structure.

If your leather is extremely dirty then you can use a Tampico Brush to agitate the dirt and grime lifting it from deep down in the grain, creating a beautiful luxurious finish.

Predominantly leather that has a sheen to it is generally dirty, the sheen is created due to grease and grime on the leather that becomes shiny, in a great deal of cases leather has a semi matt finish to it, but when its gone shiny it’s the dirt and grime creating the shine, causing further damage to your leather surface.

Depending on your type of leather to be cleaned if it’s a car interior or standard leather furniture then its most likely to be pigmented leather.

We have given below a guide to cleaning pigmented leather.

The first stages of cleaning is to lightly vacuum off your leather item with a soft brush attachment to remove all dirt and debris from the leather, this will avoid scratching the leather when the cleaning process starts.

The next stage is to use a microscope if you have one to access any damage that may be on the leather where you have to proceed with caution.

To the naked eye a great deal of damage on the leather surface can not been seen unless you use a microscope to view this correctly, see the picture below of damage viewed via a microscope, that normally would not be seen.

Once you have passed this stage you can proceed to use the Premium Leather Cleaner, this can be sprayed directly onto a sponge and work in to the leather in a circular motion  creating a foam as you go, lifting all dirt and grime away.

If the leather is particularly dirty then you can spray directly on to the leather and agitate this with a tampico brush to get deep down within the grains structure to lift all the dirt and grime away.

Once you have cleaned the area you are working on, lift all dirt away with a soft terry towel, turning the terry towel to a clean side as you go.

You can then check the area again with a microscope if you wish.

Once you have fully cleaned the full item, you should be left with a beautiful clean surface if you happen to have any shading left on the surface this could be wear areas that will need attention very quickly before they break down fully and requires a full restoration.

After cleaning you will need to protect your leather with two good coatings of Leather Protection Cream with built in intelligent protection barriers.
