To avoid sun damage to your leather furniture in Orange NSW and Bathurst NSW, here are some helpful tips:

  1. Keep your leather furniture shaded: Place your furniture away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and drying. If possible, move the furniture to a shaded area of your home. Alternatively, you can close blinds or curtains during the sunniest and hottest parts of the day to block sunlight.
  2. Use window tinting film: Apply commercial tinting film to your windows to block ultraviolet (UV) rays, which cause the most damage to leather. This helps reduce the amount of sunlight that enters your home and reaches the furniture.
  3. Keep furniture away from heat sources: Position your leather furniture away from heat sources such as furnaces, fireplaces, or radiators. Long-term exposure to heat can contribute to drying and cracking of the leather.
  4. Clean and protect your leather: Regularly clean and condition your leather furniture to maintain its health and resilience. It’s recommended to have your furniture professionally cleaned by a leather cleaning company like McArdles Cleaning Services to ensure thorough cleaning and protection.
  5. Identify your leather type: Different types of leather require specific care. Aniline leathers are porous and can be identified by lightly scratching or wetting the surface, causing color changes. Protected leathers are non-porous and won’t show color changes with scratching. Nubuck leathers have a soft, low pile surface and darken when wet.
  6. Use leather protection products: Apply a water-based leather protection cream to extend the life of your furniture and provide a barrier against sun damage. Professional leather cleaning companies can recommend the best products for your specific leather type.

By following these tips, you can help prevent sun damage and maintain the beauty and durability of your leather furniture in Orange NSW and Bathurst NSW.
