These light brown sofas were no longer the colour that the customers wanted they were looking to have navy sofas. They considered purchasing new sofas. However they loved the style of the ones they had.
Firstly the technician laid down towels to cover the floor to ensure a clean process. Secondly the technician begins to clean the sofa. This is done using leather cleaner and a lint free cloth. After this the technician uses leather prep. This is also done using a lint free cloth. Now this has been done the technician sands down the sofa. This is to remove the old colour on the sofa. It is then prepped again.
Then the technician can begin to apply the new navy colour. Initially this is done using a lint free cloth to base coat the sofas. This is done using circular hand motions to spread the colour evenly over the sofa. After a couple of coats of this the technician begins to apply colour using the air compressor. After the navy colour has been applied the navy leather dye they move on to sealing the restoration.
Finally the technician then applies the final layer onto the repaired area, this is of the lacquer which is used to seal the repair. After the repair has been completed the area needs to be left for at least 1 hour until it is dry enough to touch if the customer wishes to have a closer look at the repair however we do not recommend it if you can help it. The area should then not be used for approximately 48 hours depending on how much colour and filler is applied during the repair and on how much damage there was to repair.
On going maintenance
We advise that all leather is cleaned and protected every six months this allows the leather to stay clean and fresh and the protection cream gives that extra barrier between the wear and tear and the sofa.
