All Aces Cleaning & Restoration is not just a carpet cleaning company. We clean all sorts of floors, contents, and walls for a variety of different reasons. Sometimes it is just for a freshen-up, sometimes it is for restoration, and sometimes it is because of an accident that has occurred.
We recently attended a property in Kingscliffe in Northern New South Wales that had been affected by water damage. The water damage was caused by rodents chewing through a water pipe located in the ceiling. This caused the ceiling to collapse and wet the structure and the contents of the property.
The water damage affected all contents in two bedrooms and a living area. Some of the contents were not salvageable and had to be discarded. There were other contents that we could restore. We brought the salvageable contents back to our factory to clean and treat for the onset of mould growth.
One of the items we restored was an Aniline leather lounge as shown in the photos below. Aniline leather is the most natural looking leather as the hide is still visible. The hide is only dyed and does not have an extra coating of polymer protection.
In this instance we treated the Aniline leather lounge for microbial growth before proceeding with the clean and protect process. We then pre-inspected the leather to make sure we treat the problem areas accordingly. We then applied a pre-conditioner before agitating the leather with a delicate scourer. Afterwards we rinse the leather clean with microfibre cloths.
In this particular case, the lounge had some evidence of wear and tear, especially on the seat areas from ten years of use. You can see that the colouring has worn away in some areas. We re-dyed the leather to even out the colouring and bring back a bit of life into the lounge. The process and the final results are shown in the series of photos below.
All of our technicians at All Aces Cleaning & Restoration are qualified through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and use Leather Master techniques to get the best result for your leather. We can clean and protect all types of leather including Aniline leather, Nubuck leather and Protected leather. We do leather lounge cleaning professionally using state-of-the-art cleaning machines.
Leather lounges can be expensive to purchase so make sure you treat your investment well by getting your lounge cleaned and protected on a regular basis depending on your requirements. Give us a call today on 1800 00 10 10 if you need Aniline leather cleaning.
