Nice Italian leather sofa adds luxury and comfort to any home. It differs from Italian leather from other types of leather in that the original skins used in the leather are carefully selected to ensure that they are of a high quality. The leather tanning process is also advanced more technologically than that used with other types of leather. Due to its exquisite design, Italian leather is typically a bit more expensive. This makes the proper care of an Italian leather sofa that much more important.
Place the Italian leather sofa where it is not direct sunlight. Keep the curtains or shutters closed when the sun is hit right on the sofa. If the skin is exposed to excessive sunlight, the color may fade or the leather may crack. And you also have to have the sofa, away from sources of direct heat. Maintain a moderate humidity level in your home. Excess moisture can cause the skin to crack and can also increase the chances of mold growth. Dust the leather sofa weekly with a soft cloth or vacuum cleaner hose provided with soft brushes. Be sure to dust in the cracks of the skin too.

Clean the skin at least once a month with saddle soap and a soft cloth. Mix the saddle soap according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Moisten a soft cloth with soapy water and wipe the entire sofa, even in cracks in the skin. If the sofa needs to be cleaned more frequently, clean it with a soft cloth moistened with water. Keep newspapers, magazines and sharp objects out of the Italian leather sofa. Sharp objects and pet nails can scratch or break the upholstery. Newspapers or magazines left to sit on the leather can leave ink stains. Flip and removable cushions lint on the couch periodically. This will help ensure uniform wear on the skin and minimize wrinkles that may form.
