Leather Pigmented Mold Killer - Kit-P3.mk by Leather Doctor is specially developed for mold preventive and decontamination care during storage or with growth. Water damaged leather and storing in a humid condition promotes mold growth. The presence of mold infestation is detected by its characteristic musty odor and moldy appearance. Mold is a living organism and damages are progressive that timely preventive anti-fungicidal control is preferred over corrective restoration. A progressive mold infestation will result in unsightly sinking pits that may require physical removal with refinishing. When leather is store away, a d’Mold-3.6 treatment preserves the leather for a potential period of 8 months. KillMold-3.6 is a waterbased leather-safe non-phenol fungicide developed to kill mold growth. An effective mold decontamination process would include a restorative cleaning with Prep-7.7, sticky residue removed with Clean-3.8 and follows by Rinse-3.0. Mold growth draws its nutrients from the leather fat and oil and will need replenishing. Rejuvenating the leather includes hydrating to relax the stick together fibers and to eliminate surface tension for an even appearance with Hydrator-3.3. Fatliquor follows immediately with Fatliquor.LS-5.5 to return the leather with softness and imparting a classic leather scent. This follows with KillMold-3.6 treatment when dry and proceeds with Protector-B+ for a holistic leather care. Note that the mentioned products suffix numbers denotes its pH value in this holistic approach for both leather mold preventive and corrective care.
1. Surface contamination is safely removed with a HEPA vacuum cleaner.
2. Prep-7.7 is applied to the surface a section at a time, agitates with horsehair Brush-1, let dwell 10 to 30 minutes and
towel extract until towel shows clean.
3. Sticky residue is cleaned with Clean-3.8 follows with Rinse-3.0 and towel extract until towel shows clean.
1. When dry spray KillMold-3.6 and let it soak until natural dry.
1. Hydrator-3.3 is applied to soak into the leather to relax stiff and stick together fibers and to wick out suspended foreign
2. Wrapping the leather with paper towel and wet it out with Hydrator-3.3 is an advance technique to let the leather soak up
3. The paper towel is left on the leather to dry naturally; this technique allows the wick soiling particulates to be trapped by the
paper towel instead of remaining on the leather surface.
Fat and Oil Replenishing
1. Fatliquor.LS-5.5 is applied and distributed with a foam brush until the leather is saturated.
2. Continuous second or third application is repeated each round the water contents evaporates until the leather is saturated.
3. Leave the leather for natural drying for extra softness.
1. Protector-B+ is applied by mist spray, spread with paper towel and ready for use when dry.
