LEATHER SOFA: Tips to Maintain Your Favourite Leather Furniture Upholstery

If you’ve just ordered your new Reclining Leather Sofa from Jayee Home, it’s time to be excited — you’ve just invested in a sofa that ages gracefully and last a lifetime! 

Leather is sometimes considered high maintenance, but with the right approach, you can keep your couch in pristine condition with little need for expensive cleaning or rejuvenation.

With this in mind, we’ve put together this guide to cleaning and maintaining your leather furniture upholstery. Follow our advice, and we assure you that you can keep your Leather Furniture looking new for many years!

Clean Your Leather Sofa Furniture Regularly

Follow these steps:

  1.   With a soft cloth, go over your Leather Couch to brush off any dirt or dust that might have settled on the surface. To get into the little gaps of your sofa, use a vacuum equipped with a soft brush attachment.
  2.   Next, use a damp cloth to wipe the upholstery of your sofa. Take great care not to soak your sofa, as leathers do not take kindly to large quantities of liquid.
  3. Use a Leather Care Product or Furniture Polish to treat your Leather Sofa, and allow it to dry naturally. It’s that simple!

Minimising your Leather Furniture from Sunlight or any Heat Sources

Constant exposure to sunlight and heating will result in your Leather Furniture drying and cracking. Position your reclining armchair in a spot away from windows that get a lot of sunlight, air conditioning units or radiators can preserve the look and condition of your leather reclining sofa. 

Cleaning up Spills From Your Leather Couch

Leather is the most durable material as compared to other materials, but how do you prevent stains? Here is what you can do:

  • React to a spill immediately
  • Take a dry cloth and dap on the spillage area, do not wipe
  • Use a leather cleaner if needed
