One of the most overlooked areas of cleaning is that of leather furniture, and yet with regular attention you can prevent it tarnishing through mould and daily grime. These more specialist areas of cleaning can be dealt with professionally by a home cleaner in the Northumberland area, providing you with peace of mind. Here are some tips to keeping your leather looking brand new:
General cleaning care
These general tips can be used to maintain all types of leather. Firstly, always position any leather furniture or accessories away from the sunlight. As leather can mould very easily, it needs to be cleaned on a regular basis. The best cloths for the job are soft, micro fibre cloths which can be used to clean, using a good quality leather cleaner. Choose a leather cleaner that will preserve the natural oils in the leather, as these lubricate the surface, and prevent cracking and discolouration.
Avoid any cleaners that could remove these important oils, and never use cleaners that leave an oily residue, as this can cause the leather to become infected with bacteria. If possible, test your leather cleaner on a small patch that is not visible to the eye.
Removing tough spots
If you have dirt spots on the leather sofa, for example, try cleaning the area using a cotton swab that has been dipped in some alcohol.
