Easier to Clean: When it comes to upholstery, the material holds onto stains. Even when a spill is cleaned up immediately, there will be residue left behind. In homes with kids and pets, these stains can transform a nice-looking couch into a mottled mess in no time flat. Luckily, leather is easy to clean. Spills wipe up easily, and sticky messes can be cleaned with the help of a damp cloth and mild detergent. The material won't absorb liquid and resists stains as long as it's well maintained.
I've never met anyone who regrets buying a leather sofa. For all the reasons given, and many more, it is a piece of furniture definitely worth taking a look at if if you are in the market.
The first thing about a leather sofa that sets it above and apart from other types of sofas is its inherent durability. Leather itself is just plain tough. Whether it's cow hide, alligator, shark, or some other exotic hide, the resulting leather is simply going to last for years and years. It takes a real beating and just gets more charming as a result. The natural texture and coloration of leather lends itself to longevity because it doesn't show normal use as a defect. Rather, any occasional sign of wear just adds to the charm. This is a generalized statement and, of course, there are exceptions. Some leather is very smooth and will show blemishes. A leather sofa isn't immune to wear and tear, but it does excel what other fabric options will do.
Covering Your Cushions:The fabric that you choose for the upholstery slipcover and casings for your cushions will be the major style decision that you make. It will also be a major factor in deciding how long your new investment will last. Among the durable, natural fabrics that you can choose are cotton, wool, linen and leather. Among the synthetics, olefin is one of the most versatile fibers available. You can find olefin upholstery fabrics in weaves that mimic nearly any woven fabric - that are wash and wear easy when it comes to care. Take the extra trouble to make sure that your slipcovers and the covers for your cushions are removable so that they can be easily dry-cleaned or machine washed.
The difference between professional and DIY cleaning results is generally in the chemicals used. Cleaning companies will have a range of chemicals used for specific stains: one for coffee, one for red wine, one for doggy mess, etc. If your best efforts have failed, with professional upholstery cleaning the proof is in the pudding, or lack of it on your sofas, as the case may be.
