Leather is a very delicate fabric that, if maintained properly, looks absolutely amazing. Leather can also be very comfortable and gives the appearance of an elegant and cared for living space. Because leather is naturally occurring, it does not have the same resistance that man made fabrics have. Because of this, leather needs to be cared for especially well. Leather should be cleaned bi-weekly and deep cleaned bi-annually. This will help to maintain the appearance of your leather furniture and it will also ensure that it lasts in to the future.
Because leather has a sleek surface, one of the easiest, and best, things to do to clean it is to dust it off with a microfiber cloth. In this step, no solution even needs to be used. First, we use a nice microfiber cloth to dry dust off your leather surfaces. After that, we use a slightly damp cloth, and a little more pressure, to simply wipe down surface areas. This process will do a very good job at removing dirt and dust that is just sitting on top of the leather. Dusting is an often overlooked step that is so simple to do.
Vacuuming is another thing that needs to be done to keep your leather looking great. Because leather surfaces can be delicate, vacuuming up large pieces of debris is paramount to keeping your leather in tact. If jagged debris pieces are left to rub against your leather, they could scratch or tear your surfaces. This can be expensive to fix. For this reason, vacuuming should always be done. We can vacuum off all surfaces that show and we will definitely remove cushions to vacuum up debris which has gotten under them. We will even make sure that all crevices are vacuumed out completely.
Condition and Shine
Leather is a naturally occurring material and, for this reason, it needs to be treated as such. One of the best things that can be done for leather is to make sure that it is conditioned, regularly. A leather conditioner will help your leather surfaces to feel soft and comfortable. Conditioner will also keep your leather from drying out and cracking. Another great benefit of leather conditioner is that it helps to maintain the natural shine of your leather. Conditioning your leather furniture can be a tough job, but it is absolutely necessary to maintaining your leather furniture.
If you accidentally spill something on your leather, it is imperative that it is cleaned right away. Light spills can generally be cleaned up with warm water and clear, mild dish soap. This will soak in and help to lift out surface level stains. However, if you spill something like ink or grease or wine, a deeper cleaning is going to be needed. If you can’t clean these types of spills right away, let us know and we can come out and treat them. We will use leather-safe cleaners to make sure that your leather is stain free.
