As we use our leather furniture daily we can brush up against it with rough objects or slide it into the wall while cleaning. Both circumstances can cause a scuff in the leather. Even pets can scuff or scratch furniture. Think about it? Leather is tough but just like anything else the surface can be broken. That does not mean your sofa is broken it just means it has a blemish that needs to be touched up with dye. I have a vacuum cleaner that hits the same spots at the bottom of my sectional leather sofa and removes the color each time I vacuum. I have a special spot on the base of my vacuum that is navy blue from the dye transfer. I don’t stress! A little color removed or a small nick in the leather is not considered a defect and will not harm my sectional sofa.
All top grain leather is cut to the exact same thickness by computer. Where it is pulled tight like an arm panel or tight back sofa the leather will feel different than say on a seat cushion, back pillow or out arm where the leather is loose. These blemishes or scuffs, scratches are more likely to occur where the leather is pulled tight since the leather has no give in those areas. The most common spots seem to be arms and corners.

You have invested in high quality leather furniture? It’s so easy to extend the life of your new sofa or sectional with very little effort. Cleaning and conditioning your new leather furniture should become part of your routine. Always dust it when you dust your other furniture but if you have hard spills or your leather feels dry, clean it with a soft cleaner then add a little conditioner.
Although leather breaths naturally through it pours it too can become dry just as our skin does when exposed to the elements. Leather stays soft by taking in the water droplets from the air. If you keep your home hot or live in a part of the country that is very dry your leather furniture needs a little TLC occasionally.
