Leather Cleaning and Care Service Leather is a breathable natural material which stays cool in summer and warm in winter, it is a luxurious upholstery fabric and it improves with age as long as it is well cared for. Just like everything else in your home leather needs to be properly cared for and nourished to keep it supple. To clean your furnishings on a daily basis we recommend you vacuum it and use a soft or microfiber cloth. For small spots or stains we recommend you always test any cleaning method on an out-of-the-way spot first. We advise that you clean spills immediately. Leather is porous by nature and if any liquid is allowed to seep into the material, the stain will be extremely difficult to remove. Be very careful using any kind of oils, furniture polish, or any product containing waxes on your leather furniture as it may leave it feeling sticky. And remember to keep leather furniture at least 2 feet away from any heat source. At Boyne Cleaning and Hygiene Services we believe that your leather furniture should be cleaned and fed a moisturising product every 12 to 18 months to prevent the skin cracking and stop it from looking tired and worn. Professional cleaning removes any dirt and oils which build up over the year and can break down the leathers protective coating.Leather furniture should also be protected from direct heat sources and strong sunlight as this will dry it out and cause the skin to crack.
