Why it's essential clean and condition your leather furniture
Nothing quite beats the feel (and smell) of genuine leather, it's soft, supple and will last for many years which is why you pay a premium for genuine leather. Leather can be beautiful and leather upholstered furniture like lounge suites, ottomans and chesterfields have the ability to set your home apart, so it's important to give your leather furniture the attention and care it deserves.
Leather is durable and will last for many years but only if you provide the proper care and maintenance as per the manufacturers recommendations. Leather is like our skin, it requires regular cleaning and conditioning to help your leather keep its rich luster.
Our natural skin oils and acids cause the leather to dry out and darken causing cracking and tearing around the seams. Having your leather cleaned and conditioned regularly will remove the acids and body oils that naturally seep into the leather keeping the leather it's natural colour. Sweat and body oils cause the leather to darken which is why you might notice dark patches on the head and arms rests of your leather couch. Once the leather has been cleaned it's essential to have it conditioned to return the moisture back to the leather so it doesn't dry, crack and tear later.
Leather furniture represents a significant investment for any household which why proper maintenance and care will ensure your leather looks its best and lasts as long as possible.
