Chances are - if you own leather furniture - you know that leather is a complex material. Whether we’re talking about cleaning, maintaining, spot-treating - it doesn’t matter, leather is certainly complex. You may already be aware of leather condition and it’s necessity, but there is more than one benefit to using conditioner with your leather furniture. In fact, here are 3 that we came up with!
With proper conditioning, leather material is able to better maintain its elasticity. When leather dries out, it becomes more susceptible to wear and tear - or, in other words, damage. Leather elasticity is incredibly important to keeping your leather furniture in its optimal condition.
Proper Care Elongates the Life Span of Material
Since cleaning and conditioning are the biggest part of caring properly for leather material, it can really elongate its life span. Without proper conditioning, especially, leather furniture will dry out - there’s no doubt about it. Not only is dry leather much less aesthetically appealing, but it also becomes rough. Rough, dry leather material can unfortunately suffer from rips, tears, or other damage very easily.
Treatment is Cost Effective
Now, we know that conditioning can elongate the lifetime of leather material as it helps restore its elasticity - protecting the material itself from damage. However, that does mean you have to invest in leather conditioner. Although, the conditioner (and cleaner) itself is relatively inexpensive, you may want a professional to clean and apply conditioner for you to better take care of your leather furniture. If this is the case, we’re here to tell you that its treatment is still cost effective. In doing this, you’re further protecting your leather material, meaning, you won’t have to deal with any costly repairs in the future!
