As anyone who has ever owned a leather couch can attest, they are definitely an investment piece of furniture. Leather couch is comfortable and stylish, but they can come with a price tag.
If your furniture could talk, your leather couch would have a lot to say. It would tell you about the countless hours it has spent bringing comfort to your family and friends. It would also warn you about the dangers of neglecting its needs. Just like our skin, leather needs to be cleaned and conditioned on a regular basis to stay “healthy” and look its best.
Wondering how to start caring for your leather couch? Here are 3 tips to guide you how to clean and maintain your leather couch.
How to maintain your leather couch
Leather upholstery is surprisingly simple to care for. For your weekly maintenance, remember to wipe the surface with a clean damp cloth and vacuum any crevices or hard-to-reach areas with a soft brush attachment on a regular basis.
How to condition your leather couch
Just like how we need to moisturise our body regularly to prevent dry skin and wrinkles forming on our body, a leather couch would also need regular conditioning. Leather upholstery can dry out and crack over time if it is not moisturised at least twice a year with a high-quality conditioner designed for use on leather furniture.
Follow the product instructions when applying moisturiser on your leather couch. You may wish to clean your leather upholstery with a cleanser before conditioning. Always check back with the shop that sold your leather couch for their recommended cleaning and moisturising products.
What to do if you spill something on your leather couch
If you spill something on your couch, don’t panic! Just grab a clean, dry cloth and blot the area immediately. Avoid rubbing the stain, as this can spread it further or damage the leather. If the stain persists, consult a professional upholstery cleaner for assistance.
