Leather sofas represent elegance and splendor, and add a sophisticated touch to a home. Though they are less common these days, some people still love to have a leather sofa in their den or living room, making a great design choice and declaration. As much as leather upholstery is great to look at, it also requires maintenance to keep its smooth and elegant look.
Cleaning a leather sofa is not a simple task. Leather is tricky even for professional furniture cleaners, so you should be very careful when trying to clean it. The first step is to remove any items covering it, like pillows, covers or other items. If you chose to clean the sofa yourself, please be very careful. You can google "Leather sofa cleaning at home" if you want to take the risk, but we cannot recommend it. We have seen what happens to badly cleaned leather sofas, and we know the damage might never be repaired. If you want guaranteed method to clean leather furniture, book an appointment with cleaning professionals. UCM Upholstery Cleaning in Houston also gives a free estimate onsite, and you can receive consultation on the right cleaning process for your leather upholstery during this appointment.
It should be noted that since leather is delicate and has more discolorations and damage than fabric sofas, especially if not treated correctly. We are not able to reverse damage to leather, as much as we'd like to (and don't believe anyone who promises that to you). Before we start cleaning we'll check the condition of the leather couch or sofa, and if we have any caveats, you will be aware of them.
After we finish the cleaning, we'll leave your leather furniture clean, fresh and protected. All you have to do is go over it with a dry cloth the day after the cleaning, and buff the leather to return its shine again.
