Care for your leather furniture properly and it stays beautiful and comfortable for years to come. There are several tips to care your leather furniture. Leather furniture should not be placed within two feet of any direct heat source, including fireplaces, radiators or heating vents. Direct sunlight should also be avoided, because over many years the leather will begin to dry out and fade. It would also be wise to place your leather furniture in a place where many people will not be constantly rubbing against it causing irreversible marks. Most marks can be removed with leather conditioners, but over time there will probably be wear and tear that you cannot fix. Cleaning your leather is also very important for keeping it young and beautiful. Each week you should dust it by rubbing it down with a cloth. This keeps the leathers pores free of any dust particles.
If someone happens to spill food on your leather you should wipe it up immediately with a wet cloth and liquid hand soap. More serious spills such as blood, urine, grease, wax or ink should be removed using a leather cleaner immediately after the spill occurs. When you first buy your leather, you should apply a protector to ensure years of beautiful furniture. After this you should be cleaning your leather thoroughly four times a year. You should be using a professional leather cleaner and then seal it again with the protector.
