When Should You Get Your Safety shoes Cleaned?

NewsID:101    Datetime:2010-12-01

 

I am often asked, “How often should I get my safety shoes cleaned?” The simple answer would be- when they are dirty. Here are several variables that go into making the decision to call a professional work boot cleaner and spend the extra money on your safety shoes.
Here are some things to consider before making that call:
 
Do you spot clean spills and stains immediately? If you put time and effort into taking care of your safety shoes and home then I would suggest an annual cleaning. However, if you don’t have the time nor the motivation to vacuum daily and spot clean stains when you see them then I would suggest getting you safety shoes professionally done every 4 to 6 months. The best thing for unfinishedleather boots is oil – Neatsfoot oil or any leather conditioning oil such as that used for baseball gloves or saddles. Simply daub a generous amount on the leather and allow to absorb overnight. Remove any excess oil with a soft cloth. Finished leather can be maintained with any high grade polish – such as that used to maintain the shine on military boots. Follow directions on polish container for best results.

Stain Removal: Attacking stains on leather is always a risky job. Try to always have leather conditioner and leather cleaner available. Blot excess grease with a clean cloth. Sprinkle talcum powder or cornstarch on affected area. Let sit for no less than 4 hours. After which wipe off powder and condition if needed. Do you have pets? If you have pets then we suggest you have your safety shoes cleaned at least bi-annually. Dogs and cats leave their hair, smell and other things in your safety shoes as they lay around all day. Even daily vacuuming won’t remove all of their hair and dirt. Experts say good vacuums removes 80 to 90 percent of all dirt in yourwork boot. Therefore it is important to get your work boot cleaned periodically to get that 10 percent of dirt and hair that your vacuum can’t get. You can always have your boots professionally cleaned (expensive!). Many times these two options are not practical or available for various reasons and sometimes a store bought leather cleaner will not remove certain stains. When trying any of the methods given below remember, all leather boots are different and cleaners may cause damage, alter color and appearance, or cause cracking of the leather. When trying different cleaners and techniques, use a small inconspicuous area first and let the previous cleaner dry before trying the next one. Lastly, always use a leather conditioner after every cleaning. This will help ensure your boots last and will be with your wardrobe for a long time to come.Because the longer stains and dirt in your work booting are left untreated the harder it is going to be to clean and stay clean. So if you aren’t putting in the effort and you are only getting your safety shoes cleaned annually or less thansafety shoes and home won’t look as clean as it can. No two types of leather are exactly alike. Leather is made from a variety of animals, colored differently, and finished with different procedures and chemicals. The above procedures give only a general idea of household remedies that may be useful in cleaning yourleather boots. Many times these not only work better than commercial leather cleaners, but are much more cost effective.
