Buyer's Guide

IS IT OKAY TO COVER SOFAS? 

All materials are prone to damage. Just like how you coat the wood to keep it from wearing down, it’s the same way you cover your couch to prolong its term of service. So yes, covering your couch will protect it from so many disasters that can occur. From the dangers of having kids playing with scissors or to your pet’s claws, to your clumsy self spilling coffee or wine and staining it. A cover will not only protect your couch from physical damage as well but from losing its visual appeal as well. It will last longer, wear down slowly, and you won’t see stains as often and your cleaning habits will be reduced to maybe once a month or never actually. 

 

SHOULD YOU COVER LEATHER SOFAS? 

Like every other natural material, the leather may be resistant to some natural elements. However, too much of anything can and will make anything sick. For instance, too much sun can wear your leather soda down so much it’ll look 20 before it’s even 5. So the best way to protect your leather couch would be to cover it. Especially if it’s prone to the sun’s UV rays. It will need more protection than sunscreen can provide. Also, apart from natural elements, leather will start to show signs of giving in and breaking with time and this can be even faster is it’s continuously cleaned. One way to stop this would be to get your couch a cover that will protect it from both damage and dirt so that you go easy with the cleaning products on it.

 

HOW DO YOU KEEP LEATHER FROM CRACKING? 

Cracks on leather are usually due to dryness. Leather is made from animal skin after all. So it’s still skin. Dry skin will crack if it’s left to dry up for longer periods. The best way would be to moisturize your leather on a regular. Either with polish or leather conditioners out there they will the leather soft and more durable plus will give it a smooth and soft feel. So definitely no cracks will appear. Also, some cracks are cuts. Make sure to avoid using sharp objects on your leather. 

 

HOW DO YOU MAKE LEATHER COUCH LESS SLIPPERY? 

If you want to clean your leather couch at the same time making it less slippery and getting rid off that strong leather smell. The best if you don’t want to use commercial products would be the white vinegar solution. Use equal portions of water and vinegar and wipe the couch down. Make sure to dampen the cloth so as to not actually make the sofa wet. 

 

WHY DO PETS CLIMB ON FURNITURE? 

Basically animals get more attached than humans to their counterparts. They will always prefer somewhere where they feel safe and comfortable and if it’s on the bed with their human or on the couch, then best believe that’s going to be their favourite spot in the house. Some pets, especially dogs may get protective of their humans and may choose to either sleep in a position where they can easily watch over their humans. At times when their human is not around and they miss them. They may decide to nap where they can smelly their human and the scent is strong, explaining why you may find your dog on your bed or on your spot on the couch

 

WHAT IS THE BEST MATERIAL FOR A SOFA WHEN YOU HAVE A DOG? 

If you have a dog in the house, in fact, if you have a pet that has claws you may need to resort to leather and microfiber couches. They are stronger and more resistant to tears and punctures also they are easy to clean and you and I both know that pets can be messy at times. Leather is quite resistant to a lot of things, from liquids to scents, so in case you forget to bathe your dog, no doggy smell will linger even if your dog takes a nap on the couch. Microfibers are quite resistant to a lot of things as well, and they are very easy to clean.

Final Thoughts

I guess we’re done here, you’re satisfied, I’m sure your pet is satisfied with the new look as well, I’m certain your couch is more than happy for the retirement from pet fur, paws, muddy and clawing, I’m sure the new look will definitely meet your standards, and I’m sure your kids are just as excited for the extra padding on the couch as well.

If you’re happy, then your couch is happy and so am I. Sadly this is where our journey ends. I hope you have a great shopping spree
