• Tips for Protecting Your Leather Furniture from Children and Pets


    If you invested in luxurious leather furniture, you want to protect it. But if you have children and pets, is it really possible? There are some practical ways you can take care of that leather sofa, even if you do have kids and dogs running around. Check out these tips to keep your leather furniture looking beautiful:

    Keep It Vacuumed

    Of all the things that could damage leather furniture, dirt is at the top of the list. When you have kids and pets, dirt is part of the picture, so keeping the dirt off the surface is critical to protecting the leather. Dirt and dust can get ground into the surface of the material, causing it to break down and look dingy and drab. Regularly vacuuming leather furniture with the soft hand held attachment can help reduce that damage.

    Don't Ignore the Spills

    Sometimes, you can't avoid stains. If you have kids, you're used to spills. If they happen on your leather couch or armchair, don't let it sit. The sooner you address the spill, the less likely it is to stain. Absorb any liquid as quickly as possible with a soft cloth, then wipe the area clean.

    Don't Forget the Cleaning

    The best way to protect your furniture is with regular professional cleaning. A professional can get the dirt and grime out of the leather as well as restore it to look like new. Not only that, but they can get out those pesky stains and use the right products to protect the leather and restore the natural luster.

    You can't always protect your furniture if you have children and pets, but you can take some steps to take care of it. For professional cleaning that will bring out the best in your leather furniture, contact our team of pros at Whitehall Carpet Cleaning today.
