When Do I Need Leather Recolouring?
Avoid Direct Sunlight
When you purchase a piece of leather furniture there are a few things you can do to extend the life of the piece, the first thing Sofa Tech recommends is that you limit exposure to direct sunlight.
Choosing a spot in your home for your leather sofa that can be shielded from direct sunlight may delay a call to your sofa recolouring NZ experts for a good period of time. When it comes to your vehicle the need for leather recolouring may crop up sooner – especially if you don’t keep your car in a garage.
Leather furniture will fade and crack much faster if you don’t ensure it is placed where it can be shielded by a curtain or blind. So when you purchase a leather sofa or suite for your home, you may also want to think about the kind of window fixtures you have in that particular room. Even shielding direct sunlight with a net curtain may go some way towards delaying a call to the sofa recolouring NZ professionals.
Avoid Sudden Temperature Shifts
Along with exposure to direct sun another way to keep your leather furniture and car upholstery pristine for as long as possible is to make sure it’s not placed where the temperature drops or shifts suddenly on a regular basis.
If you want to avoid a visit to the leather sofa repairs NZ team at Sofa Tech you should make sure you are not ramping up the heating in a room that is going to suddenly freeze when you turn the heater off. Treat your leather sofa or upholstery to a spot where it can enjoy moderate temperatures most of the time.
This means as much as you love that fantasy of a roaring fire and a leather chesterfield with a cosy rug, the roaring fire is going to send you to the sofa recolouring NZ experts at Sofa Tech a lot faster. The same holds true for placing your leather sofa directly under an air conditioning unit.
Think of your leather pieces like skin, they need the same care, and that means making sure they are not exposed to extremes in temperature, extreme shifts in temperature, and you need to think about using a dedicated moisturiser.

Purchase a good leather soap, you can use just a little on a damp cloth and run the cloth over the upholstery.
Be certain that you dry your leather piece properly! Use a soft cloth and run it over, don’t rub at it.
Moisturise your leather regularly to avoid leather recolouring. A good conditioning cream will be an essential part of staving off a visit to your sofa recolouring NZ service providers.
A new suite may not need cleaning and conditioning until 6 months down the track, we recommend cleaning and conditioning your suite every 6 months - or every 3 months if you have children in the house.
Apply a decent coat and let it sit and soak into the leather. A good guide is you should be buying a new conditioning and cleaning kit every 1-1.5 years.
