It’s hard to know when you need specialty cleaning for different items in your home, especially when it’s something like leather furniture. Seems easy enough to take care of, right? Well, maybe. Here’s the lowdown on caring for your leather furniture:
This is always the question when it comes to your home. Can you DIY? With leather furniture the answer is yes and no. There are things you can, and should, do to take care of your furniture between deep cleanings.
Dusting is important because it removes the grit that can get pushed down in to the leather causing premature aging and wear. Vacuuming can also help get up any dirt and pet hair that falls between cushions and can age the leather over time.
Spot cleaning is also important if there is a spill or a spot. This should be done with a mild moisturizing soap, such as Dove, on a soft cloth. And any liquid spills need to be soaked up as quickly as possible to prevent it from soaking into the leather.
Because leather can be wiped down with a cloth it seems that it wouldn’t need professional cleaning like fabric does. The truth is that in order to keep your leather furniture looking and feeling like new without cracks, tears, or stains, professional cleaning is essential. Professional cleaning deep cleans the leather to get the dirt and grime that has worked its way into the surface of the leather. It can also help get out any hard to remove stains or spots.
One of the most important things about professional leather cleaning is that it will help protect and restore your furniture so that it retains its luster and extends the life of the leather.
