Leather upholstery is much different than other types of upholstery. Thus, keeping them clean can be much more of a challenge. Luckily, you have professionals on your side who knows exactly what to do when the upholstery needs to be cleaned. Let’s have a look at what to do first.
Consider the Environment
The first thing you have to do is consider the environment around your home. Although leather is tough and durable, there are some conditions that it cannot withstand. If it’s too hot, then it can be a problem; same if it gets too cold. With summer turning into fall, and with winter not far behind, the change in weather could become a source of damage to your furniture. Too many people coming in and out of the room where the furniture is and using, along with how your pets treat it, can also be another source of damage. It’s also recommended that you do not eat while sitting on your leather furniture.
Get Rid of Stains
The next step is to get rid of stains as soon as they appear. Sometimes, this isn’t always possible, especially during a crowded and noisy party. Condiments such as ketchup and mustard don’t lift well, and neither do beverages like coffee or wine. Blotting out the stains and using some white vinegar can make a difference. In some cases, though, you will need to depend on professional expertise to deal with especially stubborn stains that just won’t come out.
Clean Your Home
Take the time to get your home cleaned up at regular intervals. If you don’t have the time or energy to do it, then a professional cleaning service is ready to step in whenever you need them. Regular cleaning helps prevent the buildup of dust and debris that will take the shine away from your leather upholstery. Maintaining your leather furniture helps it last longer, no matter how old it is! Did you know that vacuums can help you clean them too? You just need to use the right attachments, as anything too sharp will leave unsightly scratches. If you’re not sure what to do, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
