Mulberrys Cleaners is also proud to offer leather, suede and fur cleaning in the San Francisco area. Although some of the hardest fabrics to care for, Mulberrys implements special care and toxin-free cleaning to ensure that your garments look good as new.
Leather, suede and fur garments require proper and professional care to effectively clean and protect them. Attempting to clean these fabrics by yourself could result in discoloration or other adverse reactions. You don’t want to end up with hard, cracked leather.
Mulberrys guarantees that your items will come back looking better than new, or we will do it over, free of charge. We utilize special environmentally friendly techniques to cautiously repair scratches, stains, scuffs and natural wear-and-tear.
Repairs that we offer are:
-Repairing broken or missing buttons, snaps and clasps
-Replacing broken zippers
-Repairing ripped or splitting seams
-Mending torn lining
-Mending rips and tears
Mulberrys recommends that you inspect your fur products every year for damage. The longer you put off cleaning your product, the more difficult it it to repair to its original condition. In between visits to Mulberrys Cleaners, you can preserve your fur items in these ways:
-Do not comb or brush your fur garment, as it can lead to unnecessary strain on the leather beneath or result in the removal of fur.
-Do not store your fur in a plastic garment bag, only use cloth. Plastic garment bags do not provide the proper space or air for your fur to stay soft.
-Avoid pinning jewelry or brooches to your fur. Though stylish, it will create unnecessary holes and tears in your furs.
-Try not to use store-bought cleaners or stain removers. These cleaners are not designed to be used on clothes, and can further damage your garment. Furs need to be treated by a professional cleaning service.
-Use a wood or thick plastic broad-shouldered hanger to hang up your furs. These hangers will help maintain the shape, versus a wire hanger, which could cause distortion.
– Minimize wear spots by removing your coat before you sit down on a chair with a back. Refrain from rubbing your elbows on counters and other surfaces and avoid carrying a purse or bag on the same spot of your coat. These patterns can leave “bald” areas on your garment, and cause your fur to become dirty or matted.
Please allow 2-3 days for your leather, suede and fur items to be cleaned. Estimated cleaning time may differ based on the severity and processes required to get your items back to pristine condition. Bring your items to one of our San Francisco locations before you throw away any old items. You’ll be amazed at what we can do to restore your items. If a delivery customer, you can simply place your items in your Mulberrys express bag. All of your items will be meticulously cleaned, with all rips and tears repaired as discreetly as possible.
