At Leather Expressions, we know that living room furniture is exposed to daily wear and tear. That’s why we do our best to provide our customers with the highest quality leather upholstery. Thankfully, with top grain leather, protecting leather furniture from dogs is easier than you think!
Why Leather is the Most Practical Upholstery for Families with Pets
1. Despite the myths, it does not puncture easily.
One of the most common concerns we hear from customers is whether their cat or dog could puncture their new sofa. This is only possible if you purchase low quality leather grades. With top grain leather, it takes close to 400 lbs of pressure to puncture it. Unless your pet cat is a tiger, you should be in the clear!
2. Leather is incredibly easy to clean.
Leather is actually easier to clean than most upholsteries. It does not soak up spills as quickly and dirt, mud, or fur can all wipe clean. The key is to avoid harsh cleaning products. Invest in something gentler, or just stick to warm water when possible.
3. Leather Expression carries two protected leathers.
Maximum Protection Leather for the High Energy Home. If your living room is the domain of kids at play, happy pets, and soccer cleats, then this is the option for you. Maximum protection leather is specially processed. This enables it to be extra resistant to liquids, scratches, sunlight, etc. This is the most practical leather available while maintaining the material’s natural elegance.
Performance Leather for the Active Home. Performance leather has a lighter protective finish than the maximum protection leather. This keeps your upholstery safe from damaging stains while maintaining more of the material’s natural softness. Leather Expressions recommends this for families who want the peace of mind that their leather furniture will age beautifully. So you can live in your living room, not just admire it.
