Even caring properly for your leather will not entirely shield it from the hazards of daily life. Whether you have playful pets, curious kids, or simply enjoy a morning coffee on the couch, stains will happen.
If your leather has become scratched, stained, or torn, you may be tempted with some DIY approach you saw posted on social media…but please, resist. Calling in a professional leather restoration service is the best way to ensure that your leather is restored with a uniform look that will last the test of time.
The pros will know how to work with the dyeing, pigmentation and construction techniques to create the appearance and effect that you’re after.
More often than not, proper restoration means that you can’t always get an exact color match for what the piece looked like originally – products or people that advise differently are likely misinformed.
However, a professional restoration job presents a great opportunity to change up the feel of your space and breathe new life into an old piece. You can choose a flat color for a classic finish, or a mottled color, which gives the leather some depth for a unique look.
Our professional cleaners will present you with finish options that are compatible with your furniture, from glossy (patent) to matte, and everything in between. (Leather Restoration El Monte)

How do you revive old leather?
If your leather furniture hasn’t been regularly maintained, it will require conditioning or restoration, depending on the severity of the dryness and damage.
If you’re attempting a DIY fix at home, find a product that’s compatible with your leather type and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. This usually involves:
- Massaging a thin coat of the product into the surface of your furniture
- Allowing it to soak in for a set period of time
- Removing any residue with a clean cloth
