In it's most basic form, true leather is a skin and needs to be taken care of. Here are three easy steps to protect your leather from your guests these holidays.
1 - Keep liquids away from the furniture.
Leather is extremely porous. If wine, coffee, eggnog or gravy get spilled on your leather, in many cases, it will get absorbed into furniture. Removal is possible but is not always guaranteed and can be costly. The best preventative measure is to keep liquids away from your furniture as it is as investment.
2 - Have your furniture cleaned, conditioned and protected BEFORE the guests arrive.
Like our skin, leather is gentle ands is susceptible to surface damage which gradually affects the integrity of the leather. Cleaning and conditioning the leather helps keeps the finish from breaking down and will prevent it from being more susceptible to rips, tears, scuffs and oils from our skin. Protection will help keep spills on the outside of the leather giving you more time for effective cleanup.
3 - Don't try to clean your leather with anything you can get your hands on.
We see it all too often - a client has a spot or had a spill on their furniture and decided to try everything under the kitchen sink before calling a professional. Leather is delicate and there is a reason why specialized products exist. Trying detergent, soap, alcohol and even some lower end retail products can make the problem much worse than the original blemish. Before attempting to service your furniture yourself, and this is especially important when dealing with oil based spots, please consider contacting a professional.
