Furniture is most likely the easiest thing in the house to get dirty and once it does it can start to look shabby. Since they make the key pieces in any living area, they need care and maintenance to remain looking beautiful and clean for many years. So, furniture, especially sofas and recliners, requires delicate care to maintain their look and longevity. Here are a few easy things you can follow to take good care of your sofas and recliners.

1. Dust and Clean

First things first, whatever upholstery your sofa or recliner has— be it leather, linen or cotton fabric, make sure to dust them to prevent dust and dirt from building up. If you don’t clean them regularly, the dust and dirt build-up start acting as abrasives that cause microscopic wear and tears, making the upholstery wear out quickly.

Cleaning your furniture also includes removing spills and stains immediately with appropriate cleaners to avoid permanent staining or damage. If the fabric is water-safe, you can clean it with water and a mild detergent.

While dusting, keep in mind to use a soft cloth for regular cleaning. You can also vacuum with a soft head attachment to be gentle on the fabric. Moreover, you can hire a professional service once every year or so for deep cleaning.

2. Furniture Care Products

One way to ensure the longevity of your sofas and recliners is by using effective furniture care products. That’s why when it comes to furniture maintenance products, it is crucial to pay attention to their quality. It’s because not every product you see in the market is gentle and does the best for your furniture. Invest only in trusted furniture care products or products recommended by the manufacturer. Also, make sure to follow the cleaning instructions.

Valentines Furniture has some of the best furniture care products that are effective and gentle on all kinds of furniture materials and fabrics, including timber, leather and fabric. Our products include fabric and leather cleaning kits, odour and stain removers, wood polish and many more.

3. Keep Pets Off

If you have pets, maintaining your sofas and recliners undoubtedly needs some extra effort. Having pets means lots of fur and scratches here and there. It is better to keep your pets away from your furniture and make it a part of their training to save furniture from unwanted scratches, tears and fur.

Though it’s not always possible to keep them off your furniture, another way to tackle this problem is by going for pet-friendly upholstery such as distressed leather or microfibre. Leather and microfibre make it easy for you to clean pet hairs, and distressed leather pretends to hide the scratches made by your pets. Also, remember to keep your pets well-groomed and try to clean their messes as quickly as possible.

4. Choose Only High Quality

Furniture, especially lounge suits and recliners, are among the major investments and maybe the most expensive decor elements. Hence, we expect our furniture to remain durable and robust in its pristine condition for some years. That’s when quality comes into play— and which has a huge role in deciding the longevity of a piece of furniture.

High-quality upholstery and foam, durable and premium timber and durable steel frames are all the factors that help the furniture withstand the test of time. When buying furniture, be it a sofa or recliner, make sure to buy only high-quality furniture from a trusted furniture retailer like Valentines Furniture. We stock only high-quality furniture from premium furniture brands at Valentines Furniture to ensure quality, functionality, and longevity.

Comments Off on How To Care For Leather Furniture

When looking for low-maintenance and durable furniture, leather is a premium quality to consider. You can easily keep your leather sofa, ottoman, and other furniture pieces in mint condition if you maintain them properly.

When you buy leather furniture, you make a significant investment for the future because no one buys new furniture regularly. Therefore, it is advisable to choose one and maintain it accordingly to ensure longevity. The leather furniture is going to last for years to come. Consequently, you should choose one that meets the aesthetics of your house.

Types of leather upholstery

There are two types of leather upholstery, and each of them needs a specific kind of maintenance. If you want to know the type of leather in your furniture, check the manufacturing details. However, if you’re not sure about how to care for your leather furniture, let us help you.

Unprotected Leather

These are also known as aniline or unfinished leather. The furniture made from this leather is very soft in texture and adds affluence to your home. This type of leather has no surface pigmentation along with little or no protective coating at all.

The aniline leather is not only expensive but more prone to staining. Pull-up leather and nubuck is one of the most common types of aniline leather.

Protected Leather

The furniture you usually find is made of protected leather. It could be aniline along with pigment, pigmented or semi-aniline leather. Compared to aniline leather, protected leather provides extra comfort, durability, stain-resistance, and a better appearance.

Semi-aniline leather is dyed using aniline and has a softer touch, similar to aniline leather. Various aniline leather made furniture have protective coatings of thick layers of polymer or pigment to provide a stiffer approach. Furthermore, it helps to prevent wear and tear.

Clean Your Leather Furniture Regularly

Leather is a very durable material, however, still degrades with time; hence, it requires regular maintenance. Routine maintenance and cleaning of leather furniture are essential.

A weekly maintenance schedule can help to keep the leather furniture in proper shape and condition. Hence, you will be able to avoid the risk of mismatched upholstery.

Follow these steps to keep your leather furniture in the best condition:

Use a soft cloth to remove dust from the surface of your furniture. It is advisable to use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to remove dirt from the furniture’s crannies. There are several products in the market available for cleaning the furniture. However, it is advisable to check the leather furniture care products reviews before choosing one. Moreover, you should avoid going for DIY measures that they boast about on the internet. These can do more harm than good. It is advisable to wipe the surface of the furniture using a damp cloth. However, you should use distilled water and not tap water because chlorine from tap water can damage the leather surface. You should avoid soaking up the leather sofa. It is advisable to use leather care products for cleaning the leather furniture once every two to four weeks. You should avoid using all-purpose wipes from the supermarket because they will damage your leather furniture even before you know it. Allow your leather sofa to dry for a significant time. It would be best if you do not sit on it while it’s still in the drying phase as it can bring down the longevity. Furthermore, it will also help to avoid creases from appearing.

Oil is a significant part of leather that needs replenishment from time to time to maintain the condition. This can play an essential role in keeping your leather furniture soft and shiny. However, regular use of leather furniture will require proper maintenance.

Valentines Bendigo Furniture Stores recommend Microfibre Cleaning Kit by Textile Master for regular cleaning. We also recommend that you regularly use Textile Odour Remover to keep your furniture smelling fresh.

Leather Furniture Care

Good leather sofas, recliners and other furniture look amazing. When you buy quality, they are guaranteed to stand the test of time, provided that you look after them correctly. Here are some tips for taking care of your leather furnishings.

As our team about the best furniture care products for your furnishings.   Furniture Rules

Put some rules in place with your kids, your family, and the furniture.

• Avoid having sharp objects such as scissors and knives anywhere near your sofa • Do not have your meals on the sofa • Do not jump on the sofa – or allow children to jump on the sofa • There should be no artwork or writing on sofas – allocate artwork to a designated area of the home • No one should sit on sofa arms. This will help you to avoid any extra strain on the structure of the furniture and it will maintain its original shape and form. • There should be no smoking on the furniture

Motion furniture such as recliners should have the footrest returned to the upright position when not in use. Leaving the footrest in the extended position can cause damage to the mechanism. When you first purchase your recliner, the mechanism may feel stiff. Note that this is not a fault – the recliner will loosen up with use.
