Understanding Different Types of Leather

Leather furniture adds a touch of luxury and elegance to any home, but it’s essential to understand the various types of leather to care for them properly. Each type of leather has unique characteristics and requires specific cleaning methods to maintain its beauty and longevity. Here’s a look at the different types of leather and their unique cleaning needs:

  • Suede: Suede is known for its soft, velvety texture, but it can be challenging to clean due to its porous nature. Suede leather is made from the underside of the animal hide, making it more susceptible to stains and water damage. Cleaning suede typically involves special brushes to remove dirt and a suede-specific cleaner to tackle stains without damaging the texture.
  • Faux Suede: Faux suede, or microfiber suede, mimics the appearance and feel of natural suede but is made from synthetic fibers. It’s more durable and easier to clean than natural suede. Regular vacuuming and spot cleaning with a mild detergent solution can keep faux suede looking its best. However, it’s still important to use gentle cleaning methods to avoid damaging the fibers.
  • Finished Leather: Finished leather, also known as protected or pigmented leather, has a coating of pigment or polymer on the surface, providing a uniform appearance and increased durability. This type of leather is more resistant to stains and scratches, making it easier to clean. Regular dusting and wiping with a damp cloth are usually sufficient, but occasional conditioning is necessary to keep the leather supple.
  • Unfinished Leather: Unfinished leather, or aniline leather, has no protective coating, leaving it more natural-looking but also more prone to staining and fading. This type of leather requires gentle cleaning methods and regular conditioning to prevent drying and cracking. It’s crucial to use products specifically designed for unfinished leather to avoid damaging the material.
  • Soft Leather: Soft leather, such as full-grain or top-grain leather, is prized for its luxurious feel and natural appearance. However, its softness makes it more susceptible to scratches and stains. Cleaning soft leather involves using mild, pH-balanced cleaners and soft cloths to avoid abrasion. Regular conditioning is also essential to maintain its softness and prevent cracking.
  • Nubuck: Nubuck leather is similar to suede but is made from the outer side of the hide, giving it a finer grain and more luxurious feel. It’s sanded or buffed to create a soft, velvet-like surface. Nubuck is highly susceptible to stains and water damage, requiring specialized cleaning products and techniques. Regular brushing with a nubuck brush helps maintain its appearance by removing dirt and restoring the nap.

While understanding the different types of leather and their cleaning needs is essential, entrusting your leather furniture to professionals ensures it receives the best care. At KIWI Services, our trained technicians can identify the type of leather and recommend the most appropriate cleaning method. Our expertise ensures your leather furniture remains in pristine condition, extending its life and preserving its beauty.

Common Leather Problems and Solutions

Leather furniture adds a touch of sophistication and luxury to any home, but it can face several common issues over time. Understanding these problems and knowing the solutions can help maintain your leather furniture’s beauty and longevity. Here are some typical issues faced with leather furniture and the solutions KIWI Services provides:


  • Problem: Leather is susceptible to various stains, including spills from drinks, food, ink, and body oils. These stains can penetrate the leather, making them difficult to remove with regular cleaning methods.
  • Solution: KIWI Services uses professional-grade, leather-safe cleaning solutions to effectively remove stains without damaging the leather. Our technicians are trained to treat different types of stains appropriately, ensuring the leather’s color and texture are preserved.

Scuffs and Scratches

  • Problem: Leather can easily get scuffed or scratched, especially in high-traffic areas or homes with pets and children. These marks can detract from the leather’s appearance and, if left untreated, can worsen over time.
  • Solution: KIWI Services offers specialized conditioning treatments that help minimize the appearance of scuffs and scratches. Our technicians use products that nourish the leather, restoring its natural oils and making it more resistant to future damage.


  • Problem: Leather can discolor over time due to exposure to sunlight, body oils, and other environmental factors. This discoloration can make the furniture look worn and aged.
  • Solution: Our leather cleaning process includes color restoration techniques that help bring back the leather’s original hue. KIWI Services uses gentle cleaning solutions that remove dirt and oils that cause discoloration, followed by conditioning treatments that enhance the leather’s natural color.

Dryness and Cracking

  • Problem: Leather can dry out and crack if it isn’t properly maintained. This is often due to a lack of conditioning, which leads to the loss of natural oils that keep the leather supple.
  • Solution: KIWI Services provides leather conditioning treatments that restore moisture to the leather, preventing dryness and cracking. Our conditioning products penetrate deeply into the leather fibers, replenishing lost oils and keeping the leather soft and pliable.


  • Problem: Leather furniture can absorb odors from pets, smoke, food, and other sources, making it unpleasant to use.
  • Solution: KIWI Services uses odor-neutralizing products that effectively remove unpleasant smells from your leather furniture. Our cleaning process ensures that odors are not just masked but eliminated, leaving your furniture smelling fresh and clean.
