Today, we are going to talk about black faux leather couches, why they are so fragile, sensitive, and what you should do the about this!
The first thing you need to realize is that your black faux leather couch is extremely fragile when it comes to heavy use.
I’ve already mentioned in so many of my posts that when manufacturers use black dyes with their faux leather fabrics, especially in the mixing process, it will make the fabric very weak and sensitive to UV rays and other environmental elements, and this also makes the fabric very sensitive and fragile as well, in other words, your black faux leather couch is not going to withstand wear and tear very easily and it may even start cracking and looking horrible after just some few months of use!
Then, what are the things to avoid at all costs?
This is what I’m going to share with you in this post.
The first one, as mentioned, is sunlight.
If your black faux leather couch is exposed to sunlight all the time, then, it’s not going to last you a long time, and soon, it will start cracking and peeling as well.
What you can do about this is to simply move it away or even better, use UV protective curtains, although they are expensive, they will make your furniture last a very long time.
The second thing to avoid at all costs is water.
And here, I’m talking about very hot and very cold water, and although I may advice you from time to time to use a few drops of warm water in order to clean your faux leather items and furniture pieces, from my experience, hot and cold water tend to be very devastating to faux leather fabrics because they will damage the molecular structure and also make them very fragile and breakable as well.
My advice is to stay away from alcohol, juice, coffee, tea, milk etc. whenever you are near your black faux leather couch, you should also avoid drinking sodas and other carbonated beverages as well when using your couch.
This doesn’t mean that you should never enjoy a good drink on your faux leather couch, what I mean here is that you need to be careful, always have paper towels nearby, it’s because you need to act very quick when you spill a drink on it.
