Leather furniture is a great addition to any office setting. Adding leather couches and chairs instantly gives the workplace a more sleek and elegant look. Leather furniture is also more comfortable, better for posture, and can even lead to increased productivity among workers.
Although leather furniture is durable and easy to clean, like all office furniture, it does need occasional cleaning to ensure the leather doesn’t start to look dull or tired. Keep reading to learn how to clean leather furniture to keep it functional and allow it to stand out for years to come.
How to Clean Leather Furniture
Let’s take a step-by-step look at how to properly clean leather chairs and couches in an office environment.
The first step is to use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to thoroughly clean the surface of the furniture which includes between the cushions or any other crevices. This removes any dust or debris. Then wipe the piece down with a microfiber cloth.
Treat the Stains
To remove mild stains, consider using warm, soapy water. Or you can also dilute vinegar and water in a bucket and use a damp cloth to treat any areas that are soiled or stained. Make sure that the cloth is damp, not wet, for both cleaning processes. Rub in a circular motion to ensure the complete removal of the stain.
For tougher stains such as ink, try using something a little stronger such as cotton swabs dipped in rubbing alcohol. For grease stains, you can sprinkle baking soda to the stained area and brush it off after a few hours.
Wipe Down Treated Areas
Using a dry cloth, wipe down any areas you treated until the furniture is completely dry.
Polishing Leather Furniture
Although it’s recommended to clean leather furniture once or twice a month using the aforementioned steps and to spot clean whenever needed, it’s also a good idea to condition leather furniture every six months.
Leather furniture can take a beating from body oils, sunlight and other factors, which can cause it to darken or crack over time.
A wax-based leather conditioner can restore the leather furniture to its original look and feel. Rub the conditioner in a circular motion with a microfiber cloth to remove any dirt or stains. When you’re done, your leather couches and chairs will really shine!
