Most consumers are forced to find out their own information on leather cleaning and care products as retailers generally give little or no maintenance instructions with their furniture. What information is given is often incorrect and misleading. ‘Low maintenance’ is often interpreted as ‘no maintenance’. This can cause great problems for the consumer as the products available on the market are often not well tested or backed up with clear product advice.
Coronavirus and cleaning – Important information.
With the current climate around the Coronavirus we want to re-assure all our current and future clients that we are staying open as and here to help.
We will be taking all necessary precautions in line with Government guidelines, our team have been issued with antibacterial hand wash to use throughout the day along with gloves to wear while we are a working or visiting properties, all our equipment is being disinfected daily.
We will also be observing social distancing guidelines and ask you to respect the same guidelines with our team. During cleaning we suggest you stay on an alternative floor of the premises while we are working, so if your lounge carpet is being cleaned stay upstairs for the duration and if bedroom carpets are being cleaned then stay downstairs. We ask for payments to be made by Bank Transfer on completion of the work, if alternative method of payment is required please contact the office prior to your job date.
While currently there is no product available that has been tested or proven to work on the Covid-19 strain of Coronavirus, we do have products that will sanatise your home or work place to a much higher level than you may currently be doing (as the hospitals are doing) and certainly better than any ‘off the shelf’ type products. Our products have been tested and proven to work on other strains of the Coronavirus and other viruses including Hepatitis B, HIV, Influenza and many more.
Cleaning and sanitizing your the carpets, soft furnishings and hard surfaces in your home or work place will certainly do more good than doing nothing and during this pandemic we are sanitizing everything we clean at no additional cost above the usual cleaning cost
No company should be making false claims that they have products that will work to eradicate the Covid-19 strain or Coronavirus

Leather cleaning in Hertfordshire & Bedfordshire
Leather represents a large percentage of furniture sold today, and with so many different options available for different sized pockets, it’s becoming more and more popular among consumers who have quickly realised the benefits of leather. It is more durable than fabric so it lasts longer, but has to be cared for properly.
Leather adjusts to body temperature making it very comfortable to sit on. With it now being more affordable, there are suites to suit all pockets. Leather should be cleaned and cared for, and when done properly, maintains a beautiful appearance throughout its life.
But only if you look after it.
Regular cleaning is a crucial part of leather furniture care. Not only does it remove dirt and oils that could break down your leather’s protective coating, but it’ll also help maintain the moisture balance. And that’s important when it comes to protecting against spills and stains.
We get that it’s not easy to do though. That’s where Five Star Furnishing Care comes in.

The safest pair of hands (and it really is hands only!)
Over many years, our specialist team have developed a unique step-by-step approach to leather cleaning and leather restoration. There’s no “one treatment fits all” method here. And the results are almost unbelievable. Almost.
We’ll apply the perfect treatment for your type of leather entirely by hand. The only machine involved is the vacuum cleaner we use to remove surface dust right at the start.
Then we’ll apply a special foaming solution before carefully wiping to loosen any ingrained dirt from the leather. We’ll put on a leather protector too, to prevent future soiling seeping in.
Okay, so there’s a bit more to it than that. But we’ll let you in on more of our leather cleaning secrets during the job, and draw your attention to any areas of concern too. (We’re talking things like parts of the leather that are starting to dry out because of nearby heat sources.)

General Leather Care Tips
To maintain the rich natural look of your leather furniture, we offer the following recommendations:
- Avoid using or placing sharp objects on leather goods, leather is very durable, but not accident or damage proof
- Dust or vacuum the surface of the leather weekly, this will remove light surface soiling.
- Avoid placing leather furniture near any heat source or in direct sunlight, this can lead to the leather drying out & cracking. Place the furniture a minimum of two feet away from radiators or other heat source.
- Blot up any spillages immediately. Never use saddle soaps, oils, baby wipes, all purpose cleaners or solvents. Use of these products could damage the finish and lead to costly repairs. Modern tanning techniques do not require such products, most spills should blot up easily with a dry cloth or paper towel.
- Clean your leather with an approved cleaning solution, monthly if the furniture is heavily used, but at least four times a year, followed by an application of leather protector. This should be done in conjunction with regular professional cleaning.
