Hi, homeowners! A perfect centerpiece of a cozy home, 'leather sofas' have been used throughout time as a marker of comfort and sophistication. Just like wine, leather sofas are an investment that not only withstands the test of time but get better with age ‐if you know how to care for them.
When it comes to deciding on The One for your home, one may face specific questions and doubts. Here are some tips to keep your 'leather sofa' happy and healthy:
Make Dusting and Vacuuming Your Couch or Sofa a Routine
Like with your housework routine, remember to spend a little time a week vacuuming (using soft sticks), or using a slightly wet cloth to wipe off the layer of dust that sits on the surface. A little diligence helps ensure against dirt and grime from accumulating and causing damage in the long run.
Don't let the stains set.
Durable does not mean bulletproof. When 'accidents' occur, do clean it up with a sponge or clean absorbent cloth. If required, moisten a lightweight soft fabric with lukewarm water and gently wipe it down, before letting it air dry normally.
No is "not an option"
Leather furniture requires their regular preening (aka conditioning) to maintain their beauty and sheen. Thankfully, 'regular' in this sense refers not to a daily routine ‐twice a year is a good gauge.
Away from the sun, away from harm
Like skin, constant exposure to the UV rays of the sun will harm the leather surface. If possible, don't place leather furniture in direct sunlight. Otherwise, do condition exposed areas more frequently (leather furniture requires their sunblock too).
Testing is Key
Occasionally, some conditioners and cleaning products may not work very well with all types of leather. So to be sure, test the product in a small area that is easily seen before applying it thoroughly.
I hope some of the little tips above can help keep your 'leather sofa' healthy and functional. However, having a beautiful and well-maintained sofa is an investment. While still able to take good care, of course, we don't need to spend money to buy a new leather sofa. Good luck!
