Leather furniture is a fantastic choice for offices, commercial building lobbies, and workspaces because leather is fashionable, durable, and easy to keep clean. Sometimes all it needs is a quick vacuuming or brushing off with your hand to remove debris or clean the leather. Other times, leather furniture can get grimy, dusty, and dirty, and needs a proper cleaning. Either way, leather furniture should be cared for periodically to keep it looking its best and prolong its life. In this post, we are going to go in depth about how to clean and care for leather furniture.

How to Clean and Care for Leather Furniture

While leather furniture is a good option for many workplaces because of its durability and how easy the upkeep can be, it is still important to take care of it with routine cleanings, deeper cleanings as necessary, and overall care for the leather pieces across many years. During the week, your leather furniture might get dusty in places. It can simply be wiped with a dry or lightly damp cloth to remove any dust. Make sure not to leave moisture behind! And if you need to, simply dry quickly after dusting.

There will be times when food, drinks, and other liquids will be spilled on your leather furniture requiring more vigorous or deeper cleaning methods. If food or drink do land on your furniture, one of the best ways to prevent them from causing damage is to catch the messes as quickly as possible and wipe them up.

What to Use to Clean Leather Furniture

If wiping up a spill as soon as it happens isn’t possible, or some of the food or drink leaves residue or a sticky spot, cleaning your leather furniture will be necessary. If the furniture has a protected leather finish like most office and workspace furniture does, you should be able to use a damp cloth to wipe it up and then a dry cloth to buff it clean. If that isn’t the case, you might need a leather cleaner that will provide a good, safe clean that won’t leave a stain or mark when it is applied. Make sure the cleaning solution you choose is specifically made just for leather and can be applied with a soft clean cloth and rubbed over the surface.

How to Protect Leather Furniture

Caring for your leather furniture year after year can keep it looking great and protect the investment you made in those quality pieces. Conditioning your leather office and workplace furniture is a simple process. It can take some time, but when done right, will help it not only look nice, but keep it soft to the touch as well.

When using your leather conditioner for the first time, try the formula in an inconspicuous place and wait a day to see how the results look. You might also find information on the furniture tag about what solutions to use.

Spending time to condition your furniture on a regular basis, maybe three or four times a year, will bring your furniture to life again and really make it shine. It will also help your furniture last longer and make maintenance of its finish easier. Cleaning and conditioning can help restore the color to an otherwise dull leather appearance and make your leather furniture a highlight of your office and work area.
