Our highly skilled upholstery specialists have extensive experiences in the repair of furniture.

1. What should I do if I spill wine, liquids or food onto my leather lounge?

  • Blot up as best as possible. Use a damp white towel to gently clean. If the stain remains do not rub too hard. Call our office and we will advise.

2. Can sweat hurt my leather lounge?

  • Yes, it can! Try to avoid excessive exposure to sweat.

3. What do I do if I have an ink stain on my leather?

  • Do nothing! Call us for advice during office hours. Ink generally will become like a tattoo. No rubbing will remove it unless it also removes the protectant topcoat seal.

4. What can I do about dye transfer?

  • A light wipe with a damp white towel may help, but generally it is the same as an ink stain.

5. How often should I clean my leather?

  • Each fortnight, a light wipe with a damp white towel will help keep it clean. Complete Leather Care WA offers a periodic service where we come to your home and clean and condition your lounge using a natural commercial cleaner and then condition using a commercial grade conditioner.

6. Can hairspray, methylated spirits, turps, detergent, soap, baby wipes or household cleaners be used on leather?

  • Not without causing some damage to your leather.

7. Can you fix handbags or apply protectants?

  • Yes, we can. Call us for advice during office hours.

8. How often should I condition my leather?

  • Generally, every three months, but if your lounge is subject to high UV or heat or even air conditioning, more often will not hurt. Complete Leather Care WA offers a periodic conditioning-only service.
