Care & Cleaning of Leather
Leather is a natural material and, when properly cared for, it will maintain its beauty and appearance for many years. It is also the easiest to care for of all upholstery materials. Each leather type has its own care and cleaning specifications. Please refer to the care label instructions located under the suite.
General Care Tips:
- Keep it clean. Vacuum and dust often using a crevice tool in seams.
- Though leather is resistant to fading, direct, prolonged exposure to the sun will cause any material to fade. Therefore, it is important to position your leather furniture away from windows, skylights or other intense light sources when possible.
- Keep your leather furniture at least 12" away from radiators and other intense heat generators to prevent drying and possible cracking.
- If spills do occur, attend to them quickly, blotting the stain rather than rubbing.
- Do not leave newspapers on leather furniture. The ink in the newsprint will rub onto the leather. This is true for all upholstery.
- Take extra care with sharp instruments and animal claws. Leather is much stronger than upholstery but will puncture with force, causing need for a difficult repair.
- Depending on use, lighter colours may require more frequent maintenance than darker colours.
