Resists Fading: While the color of leather will change over time due to normal wear and tear, it won't fade when set in front of a sunny window. While the material will need regular conditioning and cleaning to resist sun damage, the material won't lose its color.
Better for Homeowners With Allergies: Upholstery holds dust, dirt, and allergens even when professionally cleaned. Since leather is non-porous, the dust and contaminants sit on top of the material. Getting rid of allergens is as simple as wiping the dust away with a microfiber cloth. There's no need to call a professional to steam-clean the sofa since allergens won't embed themselves in the cushions.
More Comfortable Than Upholstery: Upholstery provides a thin barrier between those using the furniture and the structure of the cushion. Over time, the shape of the couch will change and the materials will break down. This leads to an uncomfortable, lumpy couch that no one wants to sit on. As leather sofas age, the material becomes more comfortable. Rather than breaking down, these sofas conform to body weight more readily. In fact, many owners note that their older couch feels nicer than it did when it was brand new.
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.
As a rule, liquid spills, with the exception of red wine or coffee, are suitable for Do-It-Yourself cleaning. A household cleaning solution or upholstery shampoo will usually do the trick. Apply it as soon as possible after the spill, work it into the fabric, and use a damp rag to blot out the liquid. You can repeat this procedure as many times as is necessary to remove the stain and discolouration, changing your cloth as often as needs be in removing any dark patches.
