Lets look in to those different types of leather
Full Grain Leather
The most authentic leather offered is full grain leather. This type of leather is very thick and durable. It is the most pure because it does not go through as much of a process as other leathers during manufacturing. The animal hide goes through a hair removal process and is then soaked in a natural vegetable dye. This leather is generally the most expensive and is fairly tough but will soften as it is used. When Sunrise Chem-Dry performs full grain leather upholstery cleaning, extra care is taken to ensure that the pure leather is moisturized to make sure the original hide stays in excellent condition and does not wear down too much in fear of cracking or splitting.
Top Grain Leather
Top grain leather is processed differently than full grain leather. This leather is still almost just a pure a full grain leather but it undergoes a buffing process which makes it a bit softer. Getting your top grain leather upholstery cleaning done is necessary to keep that soft feel and the fading to a minimum. This leather is very long lasting and very durable as long as you get regular leather upholsterer cleaning done to ensure its longevity and soft feel.
Split Grain Leather
Split grain leather is very common and the process to make this type of leather upholstery is a bit different. The outer layer of leather is removed from the hide and then the underside is used to make the upholstery. This leather is less expensive than full grain leather and top grain leather but it also has a harder texture and is more difficult to maintain. Sunrise Chem-Dry ensures extra moisturizing for split grain leather upholstery cleaning to provide a softer feel and prolong its lifetime. Split grain leather needs to get a professional leather upholstery cleaning more often to keep the leather soft and strong.
A very common leather upholstery type is bonded leather. This leather is not 100% leather, but rather only 10-17% leather and yet still looks and smells like full leather material. The process to make this leather is taking scraps and fibers from other leather projects and use an adhesive to bond them together. Some experts do not consider this real leather due to the minimal amount of actual leather used in making it. Bonded leather does have its advantages though, it is very durable and due to less chemical tanning it is suitable for those whom have leather allergies! Sunrise Chem-Dry uses a gentle yet deep leather upholstery cleaning for this material to ensure the different types of fiber are cleaned deeply and given the correct amount of moisturizer to increase its lifespan.
I am sure you have all seen leather that looks like velvet or suede. This leather is referred to as nubuck leather. This leather is made from cattle rawhide and is buffed or sanded to create the look of velvet or suede. Though this leather is less expensive than other types of leather, it requires careful and frequent maintenance to ensure it does not get damaged or worn out. Sunrise Chem-Dry offers a leather upholsterer cleaning for nubuck leather that will keep it healthy and gorgeous.
The knock off of the leathers is bi-cast leather. This leather is made to resemble top grain leather. This leather starts off as split grain leather that is then layered with a coating of color polyurethaneane that gives this leather a look that will have you believing it is top grain. This leather does not cost much due to its quality, without the right treatment this leather will peel and crack when it is exposed to too much friction. Though this leather is not recommended due to its short lifetime if not cared for properly, Sunrise Chem Dry offers an extensive leather upholstery cleaning for bi-cast leather to prolong its life and keep it form cracking and peeling.
The last common type of leather people often have in their homes is actually not leather at all. Faux leather is a man made leather made from synthetic materials which creates a sleek and comfortable leather looking material. This type of leather is inexpensive and is durable. Though this leather is not made of natural materials it still does require frequent leather upholstery cleaning to ensure its lifetime and its comfortable feeling.
