Proper Leather Care and Maintenance

leather coat cleaners

Leather is always in fashion. From our leather shoes and handbags to the jackets and coats that lend a personal swagger to our step, we love our leathers and wear them from Fall to early Spring with a sense of pride and personal identity. For some, when your leathers start to look worn or dingy, you may search for leather coat cleaners near me, AKA the dry cleaner at the strip mall. Or you simply wash and wear your leather coat, just as you wash many other items at home. No to both ideas. These are, in fact, the best ways to destroy leather garments. In this posting by Cameo by Copeland Cleaners, a valued Manhattan dry cleaning firm since 1934, will explain why, as well as offer the right way to care for and maintain your leather coats, clothing, and accessories.

All leather must be dry cleaned. Yes, you can wipe a coffee or beverage spill immediately off a sealed leather item, in fact, this is advisable. However, leather should never, repeat never, be saturated. This is because leather will both shrink and dry out. By removing the natural skin oils that keep the hide supple, you will be left with a shrunken, misshapen garment that may not be salvageable even by Cameo by Copeland Cleaners’ most experienced professionals. If you live in the suburbs or anywhere outside of the New York TriState, you must avoid bringing your item to leather coat cleaners near metro areas across the country. You and your garment(s) will simply not receive the same care, attention, and professional services that Cameo by Copeland Cleaners has demonstrated to each and every client and item of clothing for well over 80 years.

We will repair tears, and replace worn linings, and broken zippers as needed. If you have been caught in a downpour, we can assess the ‘damage’ and give you an honest appraisal of what can and cannot be done to restore your leathers to their original condition. Wherever you reside, contact Cameo by Copeland Cleaners to arrange for a pickup or to send your treasured item(s) to our professionals for the care and attention that you and your garments deserve.
