Our leather Cleaning Dover team were called in to clean and colour restore the car seats. Our leather repairs technician begins by cleaning the seats. In order to deep clean the seats the technician uses leather cleaner and a scrubbing brush. This is in order to remove all the dirt that is embedded in the car seats. Once the technician has scrubbed the seat clean all the dirt is wiped away with a lint free cloth. After this the process is repeated in order to ensure that all of the dirt is removed.
Now the seat is cleaned the technician preps the seats. Similarly this is done with a lint free cloth. However this is done using leather prep. The seats are prepped panel to panel gently wiping a thin layer of prep over them. This is done to remove the manufacturers coating and any debris left on the seats.
Colouring And Filling:
Next the technician applies leather filler to the areas of the seat that are cracked etc in order to bring the seats back to life. As each layer of filler is applied it is dried with a hairdryer for approximately 4 minutes. After the filler is dried the technician sands it down to ensure that the areas are smooth. Now that the areas are smooth and restored the technician moves on to colouring the seat. The colour is mixed to the original colour of the car seats and then the seats are sprayed with leather dye service at home. The seats are sprayed panel to panel with evenly spread thin coats of dye.
Lastly the final layer is applied. This is of the lacquer which is used to seal the repair. After the restoration has been completed the seats need 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 them however we do not recommend it if you can help it. They should then not be used for approximately 48 hours depending on how much colour and filler is applied.
