Scandinavian Designs Approved Guidelines for caring for and Maintaining Leather Furniture

Congratulations on your purchase of Scandinavian Designs leather furniture. We have prepared a list of helpful tips and guidelines to follow when caring for and using your leather furniture. Whenever possible, include some of our helpful tips below in your weekly home maintenance routine to help increase the longevity and enjoyment of your newly acquired leather furniture.

Keep Free from Dust and Debris

  • Wipe leather regularly with a clean, dry cloth.
  • Vacuum under and between cushions whenever possible. How often to vacuum? An easy reminder of how often, is when you vacuum you floors; vacuum your furniture.

Avoid Moisture

  • Clean up spills immediately. Blot (do not rub) the spill with a clean, dry cloth. Leather will absorb moisture and discolor if spills are left untreated.
  • Do not steam clean leather upholstered furniture.

Clean and Condition

  • Clean and condition the leather every 6-12 months or as needed to keep the leather from drying out and developing cracks.
  • Do not use cleaning products that are not intended for leather. Avoid oil soap, dish soap and saddle soap. Do not use bleach, detergent, solvents or cleaners containing ammonia such a window cleaner.
  • Not all leather cleaner conditioners are right for all leathers. Be sure to spot test any new product on a less noticeable area of the furniture before applying the product all over. This will allow a person to view the effects of the product without damaging the furniture and avoid a potentially bad result.

Monitor Potential Household Hazards

  • Avoid direct sunlight. Leather is a natural material and can fade when exposed to the sun for long periods of time. The sun may also make the leather dry and cause cracking.
  • Heat will damage leather. Keep leather furniture a minimum of 12" from any heat source such as: a heater vent, fireplace or space heater.
  • Please note that pets are not always a perfect companion for leather furniture. If your animal will also be using your furniture, be sure to maintain proper pet grooming by keeping your pets nails trimmed/filed and their fur clean.

Finally, always be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions carefully before using your new furniture and be sure to pay attention to the type of leather that you have selected. The type of leather will sometimes determine the level of care or maintenance required. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the care of your leather furniture or if your item requires additional services, please contact the showroom for assistance.
