Leather furniture is one of the most pivotal components of your house. Whether purchased or made to order, it is an expensive addition to your dwelling. Besides visual appeal, leather sofas and armchairs are known for being durable, comfortable, and high-quality. Despite the quality and durability of your leather furniture, certain factors can still harm it.
Let’s take a look at some of the most common damages to your leather furniture.
If you have a sunroom on your property, you will testify to the fact that sunlight damages leather furniture. When it comes to sunlight damaging leather furniture, it is not just the fading and discoloration that occurs. The rays from the sun make the leather dry. If you have ever been sunburned, you can tell how dry skin cracks and peels. The same basic principle applies to leather furniture. Excessive heat from the sun dries the leather out and makes it crack.
Doesn’t it feel great to treat yourself to a pizza, some beer, and Netflix on your leather couch? Unfortunately, this you can harm your leather furniture. You might have the notion that liquids, such as soda and beer, can flow off the glossy surface of your leather sofa. The truth is that it doesn’t happen. Leather can absorb liquids, which results in staining. Food spills too can leave your leather furniture with greasy marks, which ruins the overall look of your leather.
No matter how hard you try to keep your children from drawing while sitting on the leather sofa, accidents happen. You might leave some reading materials like books, newspapers, and handouts on your leather sofa. What happens is that the ink from the reading material can bleed onto the leather, leaving you with an extra copy. Never leave your printed materials on your leather furniture.
When it comes to cleaning your leather sofa, be very careful about the cleaning products you use. Certain cleaning products like soaps and detergents might seem helpful, but they aren’t. Naturally, leather possesses certain oils. Cleaning products deprive your leather of its natural oils, thus making it dry. To keep your leather clean, dry cloth and some lukewarm water are all you need.
Speaking of inappropriate cleaning products, not cleaning your leather sofa at all can be just as harmful. Your leather sofa absorbs sweat and body oils, which weaken its fibers and also result in discoloration
With complete knowledge of the things that harm your leather, you’ll be better able to take care of it and make it last longer.
