What Causes Leather Deterioration?

There are many potential problem causers you need to avoid. From oils and grease to inks and dyes, keeping a keen eye these problems can do wonders in maintaining your furniture. First, Body oils from both humans and animals fasten and hold on to leather. Body oils are easily transmitted to the head cushions and armrests of the furniture and can cause serious problems to the protective finishes found on leather. Another problem causer are atmospheric soils; such as dust, airborne cooking oils, and pollution that can wear down leather. Next, dirt tracked in from outside along with sand and fibers from plants, brought into the home by people and pets can be easily avoided. Lastly, the inks from newspapers and dyes from denim can handover onto leather in a process called dye transfer. By keeping in mind these potential problems, you can do a lot to maintain your furniture.
