Leather CareLeather is a luxurious upholstery fabric; soft, solid and improves with age. However, to get the best out of your leather and to help it achieve its enduring quality, it must be well maintained with regular vacuuming and cleaning.
As with all upholstery fabrics, always find out the specific type you have and make sure are aware of any specific care instructions. Contact the store or manufacturer if you have any queries.
Position your leather upholstery away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.Keep furniture about two feet away from heat sources.Cigarette smoke and cooking fumes can cause fading or discolouration.Keep your leather furniture dust free by dusting with a damp soft cloth about once a week, and vacuum with an appropriate soft brush attachment.
For a more thorough clean, invest in quality leather cleaner and sponge the upholstery with it around once a month. This will also keep it soft and supple and provide a protective coat. Dry the finished surface with a clean towel.
Another trick to keep your leather furniture shiny and supple is to polish it monthly with a solution of 2 parts linseed oil and 1 part vinegar. Again, test an unseen area of the upholstery first.
If spillage occurs, it is essential that you clean it off immediately with a leather cleaning solution as leather stains easily. Standard cleaning products may cause damage to the leather.
If the leather has already become discoloured, it may be possible to repair some damage with a matching leather dyeIf you would like your Leather suite cleaned please call 0800 695 0495
