How to Take Care of Your Leather Lounge

Leather is a popular material for lounges as it is durable, looks great and it is easier to clean than many other lounge fabrics. A good quality leather lounge is an investment and it can last for a lifetime, as long as you take care of it properly. Regular cleaning and conditioning with the right products keeps your lounge looking its best, protects it from damage and helps ensure you will be enjoying your furniture for years to come.

Cleaning

We recommend you have your leather lounge professionally cleaned on a regular basis, and do some basic maintenance yourself every three to four months. Many chemicals that are marketed as leather cleaners can be harmful to your lounge though, so it is important that you find the right cleaner for your particular type of leather.

Devine LeatherCare are experts in the cleaning, maintenance and repair of leather. If you aren’t sure what type of leather your lounge is, one of their professionals can come and have a look for you. They can clean and condition your leather lounge, and can offer you a chemical-free leather cleaner that you can use at home yourself between professional cleanings.

Nubuck and suede can be particularly difficult to clean, as they are highly susceptible to water damage. Devine LeatherCare specialise in cleaning suede and nubuck and have a dry cleaning process which, combined with their re-colouring service, can restore your lounge to as close to its original condition as possible.

They can also help with stubborn or hard-to-remove stains, and get your lounge looking next to new. Unlike non-specialist leather cleaners, Devine LeatherCare don’t use chemicals or pressure machinery that can damage your leather.

The final step of cleaning is conditioning, and they can recommend a high quality conditioner and apply it for you as part of their cleaning service.

Ongoing care

As well as cleaning and conditioning your leather lounge suite, there are a number of other things you can do to help it stay looking its best. Protection against cracks and water damage can be aided by applying a sealant, and the experts at Devine are happy to recommend one and apply it for you.

Small cracks and tears can affect the appearance of your lounge and can lead to more widespread damage. At Devine LeatherCare, they can repair minor damage so that it doesn’t lead to a bigger problem, and can get your lounge looking great again. They only use the highest quality products when repairing your lounge, and stand behind their expert craftsmanship.

Fading and discolouration can also be a problem for leather lounges that are situated in sunny areas of your home, and Devine offer a re-tinting service to help restore colour and get rid of that worn look.

Re-tinting can be a challenging job, as it involves matching the original colour of your lounge exactly, so it is a task that is best left to the professionals.

To make sure you get the most out of your leather lounge, it is a good idea to seek professional advice and cleaning from a leather-cleaning specialist. Professional cleaning on a regular basis can help preserve your lounge’s colour and appearance, as well as protect it for the future.
