Leather Cleaning and Conditioning

April 27, 2020

Ah, leather interiors. They’re classic, luxurious, and let’s face it - they’re just cooler. So how can you maintain that like-new appearance? At the best car wash in Dallas of course! At Tommy Terrific’s Car Wash, we can help you keep your ride’s leather seats looking fresh and functional. Here are the benefits of regular professional maintenance. 

How often should you have your leather interior treated? 

Going to long without leather maintenance can have pretty expensive consequences. To avoid having to do a complete overhaul, mark your calendar to remind yourself to visit the best car wash in Dallas every 3-4 months. 

Just keep in mind, the drier the climate, the more often you’ll need a high quality conditioner. 

If your interior is made up of lighter colored leather, many manufacturers recommend monthly treatment. Lighter leathers are easier to stain, so more frequent removal of oil and dirt will keep it from wearing down faster. 

3  Benefits of Regular Professional Cleaning and Conditioning 

Keeping your car clean has a ton of benefits. It’ll smell better, look better, and retain its value longer. 

  1. Keeps your seats water repellent 
  2. Leather seats and water are not a good combination. But spills and messes are inevitable. Especially if you have kids or pets. 
  3. When you have your seats professionally cleaned and conditioned, you add an invisible shield to repel water (and whatever else). 
  4. Well conditioned seats make cleaning easier as well, because unwanted substances (we’re looking at you, juice boxes and ketchup packets) just slide right off. 
  5. Extends the life of your leather
  6. Cheap leather cleaners can actually degrade your interior over time. Professional quality cleaners and conditioners not only make your car look better, they’ll keep it functional longer. 
  7. Untreated leather has a tendency to dry out and crack. You can avoid brittle, crunchy looking seats with regular maintenance! No one wants to sit on a scratchy, prickly car seat. 
  8. Maintain your car’s value 
  9. It’s no surprise that a nice leather interior gives your car a higher resale value. They look better, they feel better, and they last longer than cloth upholstery. Doing your best to maintain the condition of the leather is just part of taking care of your investment.
