Leather furniture sure looks great, and it’s an amazing addition to your house. If you want to prolong it’s life and keep it looking good, you should learn how to take care of it. Leather has the potential of lasting longer than any other upholstery – and you can actually improve it’s looks by taking proper care of it. We, at our upholstery shop, know everything about leather – let us give you a few tips on how to keep your furniture’s astonishing looks.

  • Leather can fade and become stiff and cracked when exposed to heat, because it gets very dry. Never put your leather furniture close to fireplaces or spots with direct sunlight!

  • All furniture gather dust and dirt. When this happens on your leather upholstery, you should use a soft, damp cloth to clean the leather surface. Before you attempt to do such a thing, however, see if the leather absorbs water. If it does, use a dry cloth for cleaning dirt and dust.

  • If you happen to spill something on your furniture, use a dry cloth to blot the spillage. Then let the air dry it. Do not wipe it – this way you will simply spread the moisture around the leather. It has to be in one spot in order to be removed efficiently.

  • Do not use soap, cleaning solutions or detergents to remove stains off your leather upholstery! Such actions may prove to be more damaging than the stain itself! Also, do not soak the stain. Just blot the spot with a dry cloth – it should gradually disappear into the leather. If it stays there, use the help of a professional upholstery cleaner.

 Take care of your leather upholstery, and it will preserve it’s charms for a long time. If you are looking for a good upholstery shop in Scottsdale, AZ, do not hesitate to contact us. Desert Design Group can supply you with what you need!
