Leather furniture adds an elegant touch to any home. The superior comfort and durability of leather makes it a great choice for homeowners seeking an alternative to upholstered furniture. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to know what kinds of cleaning solutions are safe to use on your leather furniture. With so many different kinds of leather it would be easy to get the wrong kind of cleaner and accidentally ruin your expensive furniture.
While leather is incredibly durable, wear and tear on leather furniture is extremely noticeable. It’s important to get professional cleaning and maintenance for your furniture to keep it looking its best for years to come.
Risks to your Leather
There are a whole host of things that can diminish the appearance of your leather furniture. The most common offenders are body oils, perspiration, and acids from your skin. Over time these factors along with regular use can cause dark spots, stains, and other blemishes on your leather.
Here are some of the most common factors that can keep your leather furniture from looking its best:
- Grease and Oils – Body oils from people and pets are probably the most common staining agents for leather furniture, because naturally your skin is going to come in contact with your furniture when you sit on it. These oils can seep into your leather and cause damage to your furniture’s protective finish.
- Common Soils – There are plenty of common outdoor soils including dirt, sand, and other plant fibers that get tracked into the home by people and pets. When they come in contact with your leather furniture they can attach to the surface and create dark spots and stains.
- Atmospheric Soils – Dust particles from the air and other invisible air pollutants can settle on your couch and cause damage to your furniture that may not be noticeable at first, but will build up over the years.
- Inks and Dyes – Ink from a newspaper, or dyes in your clothing can also be transferred to your leather furniture and cause staining that can be incredibly difficult to remove without damaging the surface of your leather.
