Leathers


Leather requires special care, and the type of cleaning agent you use can make a huge difference in how it looks. The good news is that leather (especially performance leather) doesn't have to be cleaned nearly as often as your fabric couch. A good cadence is to clean and condition your leather whenever you change your smoke detector batteries. 

Please note that improperly cleaning your leather may ruin it and void your warranty. If you purchased a protection plan, please reach out to our chat team to determine if we need to replace a panel.
