Like shoe leather, the leather on your sofa or chair will crack, scuff and check if it is not cared for properly. Dry winter heat and sunlight are particularly hard on leather as are some cleaning agents, aerosol products and body care products. Although pet hair is easy to clean from leather, claws are often sharp enough to damage leather. Leather needs to be cleaned and conditioned at least twice a year. The conditioning will help restore natural moisture. Do not use saddle or harness type leather conditioners as they are formulated for leathers that are used outdoors. We sell leather care products and can order corrective pigment to help correct areas that may become discolored from sunlight, wear or mishaps. There are leather specialists who can repair cracks or tears that might occur from undue dry conditions, or discoloration. The leather used in products we sell carries a one-year warranty against manufacturer defect.
