Leather has been a very popular material for years; it’s one of those things that never go out of style. When they think of leather seats or furniture, people often think of sophistication. Leather has many great qualities: it’s durable, long-lasting, and easy to care for. It can be so versatile; you can make it look traditional, elegant or contemporary. And while leather can be a great material to use, it is not completely resistant to damages. Read on to find out how to protect your leather products.
In order for your leather product to serve you well for years, you need to take good care of it. Below we list and describe 5 common causes of leather damage that every leather owner should be mindful of.
Direct sunlight is harmful to many things, leather products included. It has a negative effect on the color of the leather. Leaving leather products in direct sunlight will make them look worn down and faded. It might therefore be a better idea to move your leather products away from windows. In case of leather seats in the car, try parking in shaded spots or inside a garage.
Another cause of leather damage are significant changes in temperature. Putting your leather product in an environment that’s either too hot or too cold can destroy it. Leather items should be kept at a stable temperature. In the case of leather car seats, once again we recommend parking in shaded areas or garages.
Accidents happen and stains do too. Nevertheless it’s good to remember that if stains are not cleaned up right away, they become permanent. To remove stains, use a special protectant from a good leather restoration kit. It’s a much better option than harsh chemicals.
Products with chemicals, such as soaps and detergents, can damage your leather instead of cleaning it. They can make it look dry and dull. It’s therefore important to buy cleaners made specifically for leather.
Just like with too much sunlight and the changes in temperature, too much heat can destroy leather. If your leather product is located near a heating vent, it’s time to move it somewhere else. If your car has leather seats, make an effort to park it in a garage or in the shade.
When you notice your leather products getting dirty or stained, you may feel the urge to clean it yourself. If you proceed, make sure to use appropriate cleaners, such as:
Leather cleaners are designed specifically for leather items. They don’t contain any harsh chemicals. They can be used to remove oil, dirt, stains or grime.
Leather restoration kits are useful when you’re trying to bring your leather product back to life. A good quality kit will help you moisturize the leather and restore it, while preventing further damage.
Small scratches and tears can be treated with baby or olive oil. Apply some with a cotton ball and let it dry for at least an hour. Then check to see how the scratch looks. (Note: you may have to repeat the procedure if you don’t see any results.)
In case the damage is greater or you’re afraid of ruining your leather product, reach out to Technique Leather! We have the experience, the knowledge, the tools and the experts, so we guarantee we’ll get the job done well.
