Keep Your Leather Furniture Looking Great

Leather cleaning by Chem-Dry of Richmond uses products that are safe and effective, applied by a Certified Leather Specialist. Your leather furniture lends beauty and elegance to your home. Routine treatment prevents undue wear on your leather and keeps it looking and feeling great.

There are cleaning products on the market not appropriate for leather and may break down its finish. This leads to dryness and cracking. Chem-Dry of Richmond uses leather furniture cleaning products that are endorsed by over 300 tanneries and manufacturers.

How Leather Gets Dirty

  • Oils and Grease: Body oils from both humans and animals attach and hold onto leather, such as hair and hand oils on the head cushions and armrests.
  • Atmospheric Soils: Have you ever noticed the dust that builds up on a coffee table or desk over a week’s time? This same dust is being deposited on your leather, along with other airborne cooking oils and atmospheric pollutants that are present in every home.
  • Common Soils: These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants.
  • Dyes and Inks: Newspaper ink and dyes from clothing, such as denim, deposit easily on leather. A leaky pen or kids playing with pens can also contribute mightily to the damage.

Regular maintenance by Chem-Dry of Richmond’s leather cleaning service is recommended every 3 months to keep your furniture looking like new. Even when the leather looks okay, cleaning is required to restore the protective coating, which provides essential moisturizers. Without it, leather becomes dry and may crack.

Chem-Dry Helps You Sleep Easy

It’s a fact: all mattresses are susceptible to dust mites. Invisible to the human eye, they breed and live primarily in mattresses and feed on dead skin cells. The dead bodies and feces of dust mites are allergens, and for many people, cause asthma, rhinitis or dermatitis.

Sufferers may also experience Eczema, Hay Fever, Bronchitis, Inflammation of the Mucous Membranes, Itchy Red Eyes, Headaches, Sinus Pain, Fatigue, early morning fits of excessive sneezing and even feelings of depression when waking.

Dust mites are small. As many as 1,000 can fit on the head of a pin. There may be hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of dust mites inhabiting your bed.

Vacuuming is not enough. You need mattress cleaning from the experts at Chem-Dry of Richmond to eliminate the dust mite allergen and create the clean mattress you need to sleep easy. With Chem-Dry of Richmond’s low-moisture processes, it only takes 1-2 hours for your mattress to dry, so you don’t have to miss a single night’s sleep in your own bed.

Mattress cleaning also helps reduce the severity of frequent allergies by neutralizing pollen and other allergens, freeing you and your family from seasonal suffering.

Whether you have kids or pets, frequently host friends and family or simply are at home a lot, you know your upholstered furniture is getting a workout. Dust, pollen, germs, food crumbs, stains and blemishes can’t be avoided. In fact, in homes that have carpet, up to 80% of the dust and dirt brought into your home could end up in your upholstered fabrics and furniture. But you don’t have to accept the fact that your furniture is going to be dirty.

Let Chem-Dry provide you with a refreshing upholstery cleaning that extends the life of your furniture and is safe and healthy for kids and pets. We will send a professional upholstery cleaner to refresh and clean your furniture, bringing new life to your living space. Once our cleaning process is complete, your furniture will be dry quickly so it’s ready to be used by you and your family again as soon as possible.

Our upholstery cleaning services are strong enough to clean the deepest stains, gentle enough not to damage furniture and safe for your entire family.

Clean Upholstered Furniture The Natural® Way

When you decide to hire a professional upholstery cleaner, you may be concerned about the use of soaps or harsh chemicals that can leave a sticky residue and could be harmful to children and pets. With Chem-Dry, you don’t have to worry about that. We use The Natural® – the same green-certified, eco-friendly, carbonated cleaning solution that we use to give your carpets that deep-down, healthier clean — that also works wonders on upholstered furniture. That means Chem-Dry’s upholstery cleaning process for furniture is safe for your entire family, dries faster and resists re-soiling.

Envision millions of tiny bubbles working away at breaking up the dirt and grime trapped deep within the fibers of your upholstered furniture so they can be easily whisked away. That’s how our safe and non-toxic carbonated cleaning solution revitalizes your furniture for a fresh, healthier, longer-lasting clean. Our certified upholstery cleaner will then use our specialized extraction equipment to remove the cleaning solution along with all of the dirt, dust, and allergens it has trapped from the air in your home, leaving your furniture brighter, cleaner, and healthier than other alternative cleaning methods. This deep-cleaning, healthier cleaning method works perfectly with all types of upholstered furniture materials. And because The Natural doesn’t contain any soaps or detergents that can leave behind a sticky dirt-attracting residue, your upholstery stays cleaner longer.
