5 Steps To Clean Leather Upholstery With A Steam Cleaner

Step 1: Rent A Steam Cleaner

To begin with, you need a steam cleaner first. High-end steam cleaners can cost you a fortune so we recommend you to rent a steam cleaner from any rental outlets to keep your cleaning task budget- friendly.

Step 2: Pretreatment Leather Couch

Before using any sort of vacuum cleaner on your couch, a pretreatment of the leather couch is mandatory. For the pretreatment you need to prepare a solution of ½ cup linseed oil and ½ cup vinegar in hot water. Once the solution has been prepared, use a damp cloth dipped in the bucket to clean the couch. If the couch is old or its condition is not very good, we recommend you to use alcohol rubbing as a pretreatment. Once, cleaned using the solution or alcohol, let the leather air dry for at least an hour before proceeding further.

Step 3: Fill The Steam Cleaner

After drying the couch, fill the steam cleaner according to instructions on the label of the device. Start cleaning only after performing a patch test on any small section of the couch, preferably some small corner at back or anyone which is not very visible.

Step 4: Steam Clean Inner Sections

Start the cleaning process from the backside of the couch and gradually move to the front. Remove the cushions and steam clean the inner sections of your sofa with a brush attachments running in circular strokes.
