Even the best drycleaner for handling your everyday garments may not have the proper training for leathers and suedes. When you’re cleaning your leather and suede garments, don’t just trust any drycleaner - make sure they’re a drycleaner who’s affiliated with a professional leather cleaner. Battiston’s contracts our leather cleaning to New England’s only member of the Professional Leather Cleaners Association.

Because of this relationship, you can be confident you’re getting top-notch service. You’re getting only the best - the very best leather specialist in all of New England.

How does the Professional Leather Cleaners Association ensure that you’re receiving quality leather cleaning? Here’s an overview of their organization:

Each member of this group has at least 30 years experience specializing in leather cleaning and provides wholesale leather cleaning services to retail dry cleaners. Consequently, members process thousands of leather garments a year thereby gaining a unique expertise unavailable to the cleaner who may only process an occasional leather garment. Member plants utilize detergents and cleaning solutions specifically designed for leather cleaning. All garments are restored with refinishing dyes and oils to bring back lost color and softness. Leather is an enduring fashion trend, but the cleaning requirements are constantly changing due to changes in manufacturing. The members of this group meet regularly to share information about the best practices, equipment, and processes to ensure the highest quality cleaning. Members have participated in training sessions for the last 20 years at leather cleaning plants throughout the United States and Canada. Each member is held accountable to the highest standard of leather cleaning.
