How to keep leather sofas looking great in your Geelong home

Thriftway Furniture’s leather sofas in Geelong add a touch of luxury to any Geelong home, but with proper care and maintenance, they can look like new for years. It all comes down to cleaning, conditioning and protecting your leather. And while that might sound like a bit of work, it doesn’t take much time and the rewards are impressive. You get a great piece of furniture that’s comfortable, stylish, durable and will take pride of place in your sitting room for years and years.

Selecting the right type of leather can be important. Different types include full grain, top grain and bonded, each with different properties and levels of durability. But all need regular cleaning – it’s a key for well-maintained sofas as it helps remove dirt, dust and body oils that can damage the leather over time.

It is best to use a mild soap or leather cleaner and a soft cloth to gently wipe down the surface. For tough stains, it might be wise to seek help from a professional cleaning service in the area. But steer clear of abrasive cleaners because they can damage the material.

Sofa-care tips

Other sofa-care tips to keep leather looking great include:

  • Using protectant sprays before regular use can help maintain its condition for longer;
  • Leather conditioner or cream helps to keep the surface hydrated and reduces its chances of cracking and drying out over time;
  • Avoid placing your sofa in direct sunlight or near heat sources if possible, as this can cause fading;
  • Carefully vacuum your sofa regularly to keep it looking good and free of dirt and dust;
  • And wipe up any spills on the leather as soon as possible using a damp cloth. This will help prevent staining.

Keeping sofas looking like new is not complicated but it does take some effort. But, it’s well worth it because a good leather sofa is a great addition to any house.
