Understandably, most of our clients are weighing a decision based on the cost of repair vs. replacement while trying to work with a budget and want to make sure they make the best decision. The challenge is that the number of options can make getting the right result a little confusing.

The Automotive Leather Repair Process

The first process to leather repair is cleaning and prepping. We first need to determine if it has been damaged by incorrect maintenance, pets, sun damage, hair oils or pet scratches to name a few? This can be a long answer as there are many options depending on the type of leather, how it is colored and the wear present. Cleaning of leather is more challenging than cleaning fabric as the oils and soils need to be drawn out not just cleaned off the surface.

Typically the cleaning process starts with an emulsifier to remove oils and airborne soils. This can be repeated many times to remove accumulated soils and contaminates. This can be done by wet or dry process depending on the leather type.

This next process is to smooth out the surface, if necessary. Small nicks, bumps or abrasions may be present and will need to be smoothed out with a light sanding procedure.

If there are any tears or holes, any jagged edges are trimmed then a filler/compound is applied and allowed to dry prior to the final process of dying the material to match.

The final process after dying is sealing and conditioning!

Proper conditioning of your leather is one of the best things you can do to ensure it retains its softness and durability. Over time, leather loses moisture and oils that allow it bend and flex without damage. If leather isn’t conditioned regularly, it will become hard and inflexible. Sunlight can really accelerate this process. If you ever seen an older car with cracked and dry seats, you’ll have seen this first-hand.

If it is determined that your interior is beyond repairs, our Team offers re-upholstery services with over 30 years experience! We can look into this alternative, with many options, keeping your budget in mind. We have a variety of top grade leather and vinyl to choose from, including OEM.
