One distinct advantage to modern leather is that it really requires very little cleaning or special care.
Dusting from time to time is really the only requirement.
Your furniture may accumulate soiling with use.
If this does occur, use a clean, lightly damp cloth without saturating the area you are cleaning.
If your furniture requires a tougher course of action, spot test your leather cleanser in the least obvious area before using it anywhere that might be obvious.
With use, wrinkles can add character and a natural aged look to your leather furniture. With some care, you may be able to slow the wrinkles by fluffing and turning detached cushions and pillows on a regular basis.
When a spill occurs, and we all know that one will, quickly blot any liquid with a soft white cloth before using any leather cleaner at all.
Sunlight and Heat
Among the many things that can be a danger to leather, sunlight and heat are really the worst. Any type of direct sunlight is dangerous to your leather. Some natural fading may occur over time with use. Heat, whether it comes from a fireplace, vent or some other source, is definitely a danger to leather. It can quickly dry out the leather causing lots of issues from dryness to cracking.
Try your best not use ink pens near your leather furniture. Printed materials also pose an interesting danger to the leather as the ink may transfer and damage it permanently.
Drexel Heritage Stone and Copper Care Information
Even though the stone tops are sealed before they leave the factory, spills should be wiped up as soon as they happen.
Travertine, Granite, Marble
As with stone, the travertine, granite and marble tops are sealed before they leave the factory. Spills should be taken care of as soon as possible to give you the best chance of not leaving a stain. Make sure to keep your tops free of debris or sharp objects that could damage the surface. Avoid contact with harsh chemicals that could eat into the finish, particularly acid-based materials.
Clean your travertine with a pH neutral product or those that have been specially formulated for use on stone. After a period of use, a penetrating sealer may be recommended to refresh the protection and keep potential contaminants from being absorbed into the top. Do not use any type of polish on tops with a matte finish.
Using 0000 aught steel wool to lightly buff the copper surface can achieve a shinier finish. Also, consider using a clean, soft, dry cloth to apply a light coating of a quality brand wood floor wax. Apply the wax in a circular motion over the entire surface. Once you have finished the “wax on” portion, use another clean, soft and dry cloth to buff the top to a smooth streak free sheen. Wax off.
