I’m not going to make this post very long on you, I’m only going to share with you the right way to clean your faux leather futon sofa, I know that this subject is going to sound so obvious and most people are going to say that this is very easy to do, but I completely disagree, when you are dealing with faux leather, especially a very delicate piece of furniture such as a futon sofa, you must be very careful.
Let me tell you a story I was part of:
I have a shop near my house where I maintain and take care of faux leather items, especially old ones, one day, a customer brought me his faux leather futon sofa, it had a beautiful espresso color, however, his wife spilled wine on it and they neglected cleaning it, unfortunately, this made the stain become permanent and damage the faux leather fabric for good!
To repair his faux leather futon sofa, he paid a lot of money and it took me a very long period of time!
I don’t want this happening to you, that’s why I need to give you the proper way to clean and maintain your faux leather futon sofa looking great.
This way consists of using the right technique with the right ingredients and materials as well.
The first thing I must tell you is to be very quick.
When the same happens to your faux leather futon sofa, you should act quickly, the more you wait, the more the faux leather fabric is going to absorb the stain and make it permanent.
In fact, you have a window of just fifteen minutes to act, if you exceed it, it can be too late!
During this small time window, take a dry cloth, it must be very soft so as not to scratch the surface of your futon sofa, and wipe gently, then, use a few drops of warm water to get rid of sugary or alcohol beverages, and if you are dealing with dust and other common dirt, then just use a dry cloth with a faux leather cleaner, they are very inexpensive and extremely important.
How to maintain your faux leather futon looking great?
It’s very easy, and as I say all the time, every six months, apply a good faux leather conditioner to it, it will nourish it and make it much more durable and beautiful.
