Revitalize your leather furniture with Chem-Dry of Rochester & The Finger Lakes

Why Choose Chem-Dry for Professional Leather Cleaning?

Though we are best known for our expert carpet and upholstery cleaning services, Chem-Dry also offers outstanding leather furniture cleaning in Rochester. We specialize in leather cleaning, maintenance, and even restoration.

Over time, body oils, perspiration, and dirt can work their way into your leather furniture. You’ve probably seen what happens as leather furniture ages. Many cleaning products currently on the market are not suitable for leather, and may actually break down leather finishes, leading to dryness and cracking. Chem-Dry’s leather products are not only safe but are extremely effective for cleaning and restoring your leather furniture.

With regular cleaning by our Chem-Dry Certified® Leather Specialists, you can potentially prevent unnecessary wear and keep your leather furniture looking brand new.

Causes of Leather Deterioration


  • Oils and Grease: Body oils from both humans and animals attach and hold onto leather. Hair and hand oils are easily transferred to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture and can cause serious damage to the protective finishes found on leather.
  • Atmospheric Soils: Consider 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.
  • Common Soils: These soils include the common dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants. The fibers are brought inside by adults, kids, and pets and attach to the leather every time the furniture is used.
  • Dyes and Inks: The inks from newsprint in newspapers can readily be deposited on leather. Clothes such as denim can transfer dye onto leather in a process called dye transfer. The direct ink from a leaky pen or the aspiring toddler artist should not be forgotten.

Scuffs, Scratches, Cuts, and Fading

Over the life of your leather couches and chairs, it is likely that your furniture will get some scuffs and scratches. No need to panic, our Chem-Dry certified technicians are trained to repair surface damage on your leather with any of our 60 stock pigment colors similar to the ones used in the tanning process. We can also revitalize color on sensitive aniline leathers.


How Often Do I Clean My Leather?

A regular cleaning schedule including professional cleaning 1-2 times per year is recommended.

In between professional cleanings, you can maintain the health and beauty of your leather furniture by cleaning with Chem-Dry Soft Cleaner® and rejuvenating the protection with Chem-Dry Protection Cream®. Both products are found in the Chem-Dry Home Leather Care Kit®.
