Choosing the right sofa to fit your style and budget can be just as overwhelming as it is exciting, especially when there are so many things to factor in, like how it will fit into your living space and what colour to choose. When you decide upon a leather sofa, you can be confident in knowing that you are buying furniture that will be in your home for years to come, which in itself is a sound investment. But how do you get the most out of your purchase? And how do you increase the longevity of your lounge’s life? Like all furniture, proper cleaning and maintenance is essential and with a bit of care and attention, you can ensure your leather lounge will stand the test of time. Here’s how you can keep your leather lounge as clean as a whistle, in just five easy steps.
Using a vacuum with soft brush attachment, remove any loose dirt and particles, paying special attention to those that may have fallen into crevices.
Give your lounge a once over with a damp wet cloth, to ensure any sticky marks or remaining dirt are removed.
Do not use soap to clean your sofa! Use a premium leather care cleaner to give your leather lounge a thorough clean - we recommend using a high quality cleaner such as Guardsman. Shake the bottle before applying a small amount to a damp cloth, so it slightly foams.
Lightly wipe down your lounge with the damp cloth using a circular motion. Avoid rubbing as this may slightly lift the colour of your leather.
Softly wipe off excess residue with a dry, soft cloth.
We recommend cleaning your leather lounge every 8-12 weeks, but regular upkeep should be maintained so refer to our article 10 Ways To Keep Your Leather Sofa Looking Great & Feeling New for more tips and tricks. Using a protector such as Guardsman Leather Protect & Serve will also help protect your leather furniture against premature aging and damaging stains. A leather conditioner can also be used every 6-12 months for keeping your lounge suite at it’s very best.
