Leather Care and Cleaning Codes
There is nothing like the feel of leather furniture. Leather is truly natures material, each hide is unique. Every hide has it's own share of scratches, healed scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. These are not flaws, but natural signature markings that are the benchmark of fine leather.
The following cleaning codes and instructions are provided for your education and direction in cleaning spots and stains from your new upholstery or leather. These are common and recognized definitions within the furniture industry but should not be construed as a guarantee that desired results will be obtained by following these methods. We strongly recommend you call our service department or a professional cleaner. Always test cleaners in a hidden area before proceeding. Be sure to follow the care tips also provided in this packet to extend the life of your new furniture.
Code "A" Care Method
Aniline leather. Natural looking leather will feature noticeable range marks, barbed wire scars, wrinkles, scratches and brands. Subtle color and shading variations will exist from hide to hide and even within a hide. Keep leather clean by dusting frequently with a soft, clean cloth or by vacuuming with a soft brush attachment.
Code "P" Care Method
Pigmented or aniline-plus leather. This leather has been treated to enhance stain resistance. It is more uniform in color and texture than aniline leather and will have fewer noticeable range markings. Keep leather clean by dusting frequently with a soft, clean cloth or by vacuuming with a soft brush attachment.
Code "N" Care Method
Nubuck leather. This leather has been buffed to a velvety, suede-like nap. It is more likely to fade and stain and will feature noticeable range markings. Keep leather clean by dusting frequently with a soft, clean cloth or by vacuuming with a soft brush attachment.
Note: No cleaning method will remove every stain, and some stains can cause permanent discoloration even after the stain is removed. Keep your furniture clean, do your best to prevent accidental spills and give any stain prompt attention to maximize cleaning results.
