I’ve been in the faux leather business and industry for the last twenty-five years of my life and I know that many shoppers are going to make mistakes whenever they are trying to buy a microfiber faux leather sofa, and this is what I’m going to talk to you about in this post, what are the traps you need to avoid and also how to maintain your microfiber faux leather sofa in perfect condition over the years.
The first trap you need to avoid is buying from an unknown name brand!
You may not know a lot of name brands that are specialized in faux leather products and sofas, but I do, and from my experience, if you decide to buy from the unknown brands, either local or foreign ones which are not trusted and which are not well represented in your country, you will be making a terrible mistake!
It’s because these unknown name brands are going to use less noble and quality fabrics and materials to make their microfiber faux leather sofas, not only that, because you are dealing with a product that’s going to be exposed to a lot of stress and a lot of damages, especially in homes and offices, you need to always select the best brands, because they are the ones which care a lot about their reputation and fear for their name.
However, there is also another trap you need to avoid, the price!
Most people are going to be blinded by cheap and low prices, they may think that they are legitimate and normal, but the reality is something completely different and shocking!
As mentioned before, I’ve been working with faux leather products and items for the last twenty-five years of my life and I know many dirty secrets of the industry, for example, there are so many additives and so many chemical products used to treat and maintain faux leather working and looking optimal for at least two months, these products are widely used by unscrupulous brands in order to make people think that their products are of high quality, however, after just some few months of daily use, the product is going to start deteriorating and you will soon find yourself with a piece of trash!
From my experience, even when you are dealing with faux leather, lower prices simply mean lower quality!
The third trap to avoid is comfort.
Don’t forget that you are dealing with a microfiber faux leather sofa, a sofa after all, one you are going to sit on and enjoy moments with your family or by yourself for a very long time, if you sit on a sofa for more than thirty minutes and you start feeling uncomfortable, then something is wrong and you need to avoid it.
This is the reason why I highly recommend that you only buy your microfiber faux leather sofa from known brands; they are the ones who are scared about their reputation and customer satisfaction.
And the fourth trap to avoid is warranty.
If you don’t have a warranty that covers at least one year, returns included, then don’t bother, don’t buy it, it’s completely worthless!
Because most troubles are going to appear with your microfiber faux leather sofa once you pass the one year mark!
Let’s talk now about how to maintain your microfiber faux leather sofa in perfect condition.
When it comes to the microfiber part, there are so many products you can use, however, I’m only going to talk about the faux leather part.
The best thing to do is to always clean your faux leather part with a good faux leather conditioner, it’s very affordable and highly nutritious to the fabric, and when you are dealing with accidents, for example, spilling some wine or soda, the first thing is to take a dry cloth and dump it in some warm water, then clean and wipe gently.
