Why & When & How Leather Lounges should be Cleaned and Conditioned.

Leather is a fabric!
Leather is porous!
Leather breathes!

What happens is:

When your leather is not regularly (yearly) conditioned (and therefore gets DRY=thirsty) the leather which is actually under the colour (pigment) which is actually under the top coat (clear), will draw “elastins”(in the pigment) out of the colour. This will imbalance the pigment and it will crack, and therefore the clear coat will crack and therefore your leather is now exposed to body oils, salts, perspiration and dirt and will therefore deteriorate and rot and tear and look very old and unpleasant before its time. THIS IS CALLED: DETERIORATION FROM THE BOTTOM UP.

But Here’s a BIG Problem With YOU Regularly Conditioning Your Leather:

Before your leather is conditioned the leather surface must be thoroughly and properly cleaned of all spills, spots, body oils, salts, perspiration dirt, grime and anything else on the surface that doesn’t belong. “WHY must this be done so thoroughly“, I hear you ask. Because if you condition these residues “in” with conditioner they will break down your top coat, then your pigment, then the leather. THIS IS CALLED: DETERIORATION FROM THE TOP DOWN.

  • Conditioning also gives the leather surface a degree of water/liquid resistance.

Other factors that can damage your Leather Lounge are:

  • Medications: the perspiration of people on many common medications.
  • Heat: do not allow any heating device or outlet within 60 cm of your lounge.
  • Liquids: coffee & tea can stain leather permanently, nail polish & remover.
  • Direct Sunlight: it will cause fading, dryness and hardening of the surface.
  • Mould: mould is a live organism, it thrives in a cool non air moving area.
  • Pets: their claws scratch open the topcoat, their saliva, hair oil and body fluids cause stains.
  • Dust: dust your lounge as you would other items in your home.
  • Shoes: scuff marks or colour transfer at the face base of your lounge.
