    Regular Cleaning Methods

    Important Tip: don't get out a sponge and a bucket and clean your leather furniture. That's a recipe for disaster. Instead, utilize these two simple steps to care for your leather:

    1. First and foremost, dust it.

    Just like all of your other furniture that gets dusty, so do your leather couches and chairs. Dust them weekly or whenever you dust the rest of your home.

    2. A little vacuuming goes a long way!

    When you vacuum your carpets and floors, vacuum your furniture too. Upholstered and leather furniture both benefit from regular vacuuming. Dirt, dust, and other debris that gets left on the surface can work its way down into the folds and into the leather, causing it to breakdown and weaken. It will also affect the surface appearance, making it look drab and dirty. Regular vacuuming can help prevent this.

    Clean and Condition

    Specialty cleaning and conditioning is essential to maintaining the look and feel of your leather furniture. The best approach is to use a professional cleaning service that is certified to clean leather. For best results, this specialty cleaning professional will:

    • Evaluate the furniture before cleaning to determine the right steps for your unique piece of leather furniture.
    • Use professional tools to get the job done right - to protect your leather from disaster.
    • Condition and protect the leather to make it look like new and keep it protected against the wear, tear, and spills that may come.
