Caring for a leather chesterfield sofa

To maintain the quality finish of your leather furniture, it’s important to take care of it by cleaning it every now and then. Thankfully, caring for a leather chesterfield sofa doesn’t have to be time consuming, on the contrary. Following a few simple steps can help to keep the leather looking new for longer.

Because we take pride in every single item that comes out of our workshop, we are happy to offer advice about cleaning leather sofas, so you can maintain the luxurious piece of furniture you’ve just bought. Also, be aware that clothing that you wear may cause damage to the leather, which can be caused by things like studs on jeans or small zips on trouser pockets. Although the leather is naturally resilient, it’s still a good idea to try and avoid potential damage where you can.

Daily Care

We recommend dusting down your new leather chesterfield furniture each day with a lint free cloth.

Weekly Care

Use a lint free cloth with warm water to gently wash the leather (except aniline leathers) and then revive the finish using a soft brush.

Monthly Care

To reduce the chances of the leather drying and cracking over time, use a recommended leather clean and feed product. We can help advise on this, so please feel free to get in touch.

Important rules to remember

  • Avoid using harsh chemicals that aren’t designed for cleaning leather, as these may permanently damage or stain your new leather.
  • When deciding where to place your new piece of leather furniture, make sure you keep it away from a permanent heat source like radiators, as the heat may cause uneven wear.
  • Frequently dust your sofa or chair to reduce the build up of dirt and grim in the joints and grain.
  • Clean and treat your leather furniture with an approved leather cleaning solution every 2-3 months or so.
