I’m going to give you the best instructions in order to repair a faux leather sofa, however, you have to be very careful because you may be required to use some chemicals that can be a little dangerous for your health, so, take every precaution possible to avoid contact with your skin and eyes as much as possible.
First, you need to identify what is your faux leather sofa suffering from?
If it’s cracking, then, you need to follow these instructions:
Decide whether the cracks are extremely annoying to you and whether you would like to get rid of them or just hide them!
This is very important because if the cracks are huge and you don’t want to hide them, you would like to get rid of them, then, there is only one thing you can do, use a new piece of faux leather fabric, that’s identical with the faux leather fabric in your sofa and replace the old damaged one.
And if you don’t want this, you can simply dye your cracked areas, and to do this, there are so many brands and so many products to work with, my favorite ones, and the safest in my opinion, are: Fiebings Leather Dye, which is my favorite, and Tandy Leather dyes, which are also very good and easy to use.
What if a part of your faux leather sofa is torn?
Then, the only thing you have left is to use an identical piece of faux leather fabric, in other words, replace the torn area.
Can you glue it together again?
Although this may be a good solution in some few cases, I do not recommend this because most of the glues sold nowadays are very corrosive, meaning that they are going to destroy the fabric in order to glue it together, and your faux leather sofa is never going to look the same again.
In my opinion, if you feel a little adventurous and you would like a project to busy yourself with, why not replace the cracks or torn area yourself, just get a piece of faux leather fabric that’s identical in texture and color, you can use the internet to shop for the cheapest and most affordable pieces of fabric, and you can sew it yourself, it’s not that big of a deal after all.
And if you are a little hesitant, just dye it; it’s much more convenient and quick as well.
