Important Things to Remember in Taking Care of your Leather Furniture

Leather furniture is both luxurious and elegant. Another factor that adds to its beauty is that it is also durable. Generally, leather lasts for at least four times longer than any other upholstered furniture. However, with constant use, or maybe even abuse, the leather will eventually become damaged and improper cleaning might ruin it all the more. In order for your leather furniture to last longer, treat them with special care and attention.
To prevent leather furniture from sustaining a more permanent damage, never place them near heat sources. This is because the heat will make the leather dry and brittle which may eventually start to crack. Heat includes sunlight, because its ultra violet rays will cause discoloration and color fading.
During the manufacturing process, when leather is tanned, it is already preserved. The degree of care you will need is minimal with normal use of the furniture. This includes dusting them at least once a week with a damp, white cloth. Never use a dyed rag because the color might bleed into the leather. You can also use a vacuum cleaner to clean the crevices and in between the cushions.
Immediately clean any stain or spills to prevent the leather from soaking them up. To do this, blot the area with a clean and absorbent cloth with warm water and allow to air dry. Use less water as much as possible. Avoid rubbing because it will only make the stain worse.
Leather furniture is one of the many investments you have as a part of your interiors, you have the responsibility of taking care of them. With the proper care you are preserving its durability, beauty, and perfection.
