It can also occurduring hot, humid weather in non-coastal areas. Fungus growth is also aconcern for garaged vehicles and furniture in storage for extendedperiods.
You may notice dark or white blotches where two areasof the leather touch, or areas not used. this is not just an eyesore.If the contamination is not removed, the fungus will dissolve theleather, forming small pits.
Just like mold and mildewcontamination in other areas, you cannot wash or shampoo it away. Thisonly makes the problem worse. The fungus is caused by living organismsthat must be killed before the leather is cleaned.
Pre-test in a hidden area to insure color fastness.
Wear latex gloves.
Clean the surface of the leather with Soft or Strong Cleaner to remove any visible mold excrement.
Lightly rub a very small amount on the contamination.
Allow the product to dry and wipe off with a soft, white cloth.
Repeat these steps if necessary.
After removal of the mold, clean the area with Leather Soft Cleaner. Allow to dry and apply Leather Protection Cream.
