Very Important - Please don't do this on nubuck or suede as these types of leather require a different process.

Ideally, protection of your leather should be carried out after cleaning, every 3 months or with the change of season.

If your leather furniture is 2 / 3 years or older and or has never been treated please contact us for advice, information or a quote. Furniture of this condition can be tricky to clean and protect.
