Like with all furniture in your home, it’s important that you take care of your La-Z-Boy products to help avoid unnecessary wear and tear or potential damage.
Below is some advice on looking after your La-Z-Boy furniture, along with some hints and tips on how to make your purchases last.
La-Z-Boy leather products
If you’ve chosen one or more of our leather products, there are a few important things to keep in mind.
Genuine leather will show natural marks, which are not faults and should be seen as unique characteristics to your purchase. Leather is also naturally inclined to stretch, which can show as creasing on cushion tops. On deep-buttoned furniture this can lead to opening of pleats, which is completely normal for this type of upholstery.
When it comes to generally looking after your leather sofa or armchair, wiping regularly with a soft cloth or duster will keep it dust-free. If soiled, you should wipe it down gently with a damp cloth and dry immediately with a soft cloth.
Leather care kits are available, and how often you use these depends on your lifestyle and use of the products. If you keep your La-Z-Boy furniture in a dry place such as near a radiator, you may also want to condition it with proprietary hide food once a year.

La-Z-Boy fabric products
If you’ve opted for a fabric sofa or armchairs, there are certain steps you can take to care for your products.
The arms can receive a good deal of wear over time, and head pillows can become soiled by hair, oil or grease. Matching arm caps and headset covers can help prevent wear to these areas.
If a thread from your furniture becomes snagged in any way, you should cut it short so it will not be noticeable, rather than pulling the fabric further.
When it comes to cleaning, we recommend this is done regularly to keep the colours bright. Upholstery should be vacuumed and softly brushed. Stiff brushes and wet cleaning are not recommended.
And like with leather, some fabric products have their own characteristics. Acrylic velvets will crush and crease, creating random shading, which is nothing to worry about.
