    Recently had a job where some self leveler leaked into the basement, onto a black leather couch.... Both of our normal go-to cleaners won't deal with leather furniture. I have a few feelers out, but just seeing if anyone here has ever dealt with a similar situation. Can we get it cleaned, or are we about to be buying a leather couch?

    Have you tried a damp towel yet?

    Haven't tried anything yet. Don't wanna worsen the problem. It wasn't noticed until the morning after the install.

    Try some Saddle soap then like a leather conditioning product
    Good luck

    You’re hoping it didn’t bond well with the leather. You might get lucky and it picks right off.

    @alex.smith Would you mind if I moved this to a different forum? It's not really about "business", but this topic can't be seen by non-pro members, if that's what you were going for.

    SLC usually requires a primer that helps it bond to the floor. If this was one of those kinds of SLC and no primer was spilled too, a damp cloth might be your best fix. Then have the whole thing cleaned by a leather cleaner.

    You're the boss, boss! ;) Probably the wrong forum, but this is where I spend 100% of my time on TFP. Sorry!

    But yeah, was just looking for pro input.. I'm also not the actual installer (it was one of the installers that gets work daily via our company).

    When pros post to a private forum, I want to make sure to ask before moving. It's your thread, so in some respects, you're the boss too. I just thought, unless it was done to avoid embarrassment or for some other important reason, it would be better help to others who find themselves in a similar situation. Now it can be found by anyone, even on Google, where's before, only members with Pro access could see your thread. Thanks for letting me move it.

    I’d try laying a very hot damp towel on it to soften things up first the. Try cleaning. Luckily it didn’t make it into that carpet!
