How do I know when my leather needs to be recolored?
When obvious color loss is present with some relatively minor surface wear. If more serious damages are present, additional and more complicated repairs may be required. Each situation is unique and should be professionally evaluated either through an onsite inspection by a technician or with photos illustrating the condition of the leather well.
How long will the new finish or repair last?
A professionally applied color, with or without additional repairs, can last many years with good care and maintenance of your furniture. Most reputable technicians will guarantee their work for a period of time - again, depending on the extent of the original damages and wear.
How often should I clean and condition my leather?
For finished leather, a minimum of twice per year is recommended for conditioning your leather, but might be more often if you live in a much drier climate or your leather is regularly exposed to heat or direct sunlight. For other types of leather, such as aniline, semi-aniline or wax pull-up dyed leathers, it is recommended to seek a professional. Cleaning should be done as needed using a damp (not wet) microfiber cloth, then immediately dried to prevent water from sitting on the leather for an extended period of time.
