    What can you do to extend the life of your leather furniture? Here are five tips you need to know.

    When it comes to taking care of your leather furniture, it’s important to know what you are doing. As you well know, leather is an investment, and the last thing you want to do is ruin it with improper care or the wrong cleaning products. While you will eventually want professional help to keep it in optimal condition for years to come, there are a few things you can do on your own to extend the life of your most beloved leather pieces:

    1. Consider where you are placing your leather furniture in your home. Placing leather in direct sunlight (for example, near a window or under a skylight) can cause the leather to age prematurely, resulting in cracks and spots. Instead, choose a spot in your living space that is away from the sunlight for the majority of the day.
    2. Avoid contact with too much heat. Make sure your leather furniture is not placed next to heaters and vents. The hot air can cause the leather to dry out and even crack.
    3. Keep the surface clean. At least once a week, wipe your leather furniture down with a clean, dry cloth. Be sure the cloth is soft to the touch so as not to scratch the surface.
    4. Choose the right cleaning products. When necessary, clean your furniture with water and mild soap, such as saddle soap. Be sure to use a non-abrasive cloth or sponge so that you don't damage the leather.
    5. Get a professional leather furniture cleaning from the experts. Every so often, schedule a leather furniture cleaning from a professional. Check references and credentials before hiring someone for the job, because a cleaning service that does not know what they are doing could ruin your furniture beyond repair.
