People are drawn to leather for all kinds of reasons, including its sophistication, character, timelessness and, last but not least, durability. But that does not mean leather doesn’t require regular care just as your upholstered furniture does.
Though it appears less porous on the surface than upholstery (and might even feel dry to the touch after a spill is wiped away), this camouflage effect is often misleading. Leather is porous and absorbs spilled liquids, dirt, dust and allergens over time. Dirt and other harmful substances might be hard to recognize just by looking at the surface of leather, but eventually your furniture will start to lose that soft and supple look and feel that you love.
Manufacturers of leather products, including furniture, often advise their clients to employ professional leather cleaning services to care for these valuable pieces. Do you really want to risk tackling a leather lounge suite with store-bought leather cleaners and the instructions from the back of a can? Many of these store-bought cleaners may be wrong for the type of leather furniture you have, too harsh for most leathers or even run the risk of causing permanent damage.
Moreover, some furniture owners neglect to wipe the surface clean with a dry, soft brush or cloth before using leather cleaners, an important step that ought to be taken regularly anyway to avoid scratches that can be caused by gritty debris from any number of household sources. Meanwhile, rough cleaning (i.e. scrubbing) or overuse of cleaners and furniture treatments is another danger if you’re not well informed about proper leather care.
