Leather Furniture Cleaning
Leather furniture is one of the most elegant types of furniture that you can own. Leather is pleasant to have in any style of home, and will bring a new light to any room it is placed in.
Leather is also a type of material that is easily maintained. Caring for your furniture is easily overlooked, but in order to hold the value of your leather, you should follow a few simple tasks in order to keep your leather looking, feeling, and even smelling new. You should also know of the different styles of leather finishes before you purchase your leather furniture.
Aniline leather is natural looking and will feature more noticeable marks, barbed wire scars, scratches, brands and wrinkles. The uniqueness of this leather will work for you if you are looking for a piece of furniture that is distinctive when looking at other furniture. Aniline leather should be cleaned with a soft cloth and vacuumed with a soft brush extension. You should also rub the leather down with a cleaning solution to preserve the quality of the leather.
Aniline Plus Leather
Pigmented or aniline-plus leather is another form of leather that is treated to ensure that there will be a smoother color and fewer scratches, marks and branding. This leather has also been treated to help the resistance of stains. Unlike Aniline leather, this is the most common form of leather you will find in department stores and furniture stores. You can also clean this form of leather in the same manner you would the Aniline leather; simply dust with a soft cloth and vacuum with a soft brush extension.
Nubuck leather has been buffed to feel like velvet or suede. This is a form of leather that will have more noticeable range marks, and is more likely to stain and fade than the two other forms of leather. Using a product such as Leather Master Nubuck cleaner and protection which will help the leather resist natural body oils, liquid spills, perspiration and maintain the velvet/suede texture. This form of leather is harder to keep clean than the other two forms of leather due to the texture not being smooth like Pigmented and Aniline leather.
No cleaning will remove every stain, fading or wear. However, you will be able to maintain your leather furniture longer by removing spills immediately, dusting regularly and using care and cleaning products designed for leather furniture.
Keeping Your Furniture Clean
Tips For Prolonging The Beauty Of Your Upholstery
You just bought furniture for the living room, so how do you maintain its fresh new appearance?
To keep your furniture clean, it’s necessary to conduct routine maintenance, including periodic cleaning by a certified technician every 12 to 24 months. Furniture and fabric manufacturers recommend that consumers not wait until sever soiling occurs before cleaning because the greater the soiling, the less the likelihood of restoring the fabric's original colour, appearance, and texture, and the greater adverse effect on indoor environmental quality.
Regular cleaning by a trained, certified professional can help restore your upholstery's appearance, extend its life, and keeping it looking "like new". In addition, certified professionals can offer simple suggestions to maintain a clean and healthy environment. These tips often include:
Control soil by using arm caps and rotating seat cushions frequently to prolong life and appearance of areas prone to wear and tear.
Remove dry soil by vacuuming and, depending on the fabric, brushing to remove dust and soil particles.
Increased cleaning may be required when fabric is subjected to heavy use, or when it is located in homes occupied with persons with allergies or respiratory sensitivity.
