After a few years of regular use, a bonded leather sofa may become worn looking with stretched and sagging surface, fading color, and may begin to crack or peel. You will have to repair the peeling bonded leather sofa. After the repair, you can use it for many more years.
Things to prepare:
- Liquid dish soap
- Leather repair kit
- Hair dryer
- 240-grit sandpaper and 400-grit sandpaper
- Clean soft cloth
- Make a mixture of warm water and a few squirts of liquid dish soap in a bucket. Clean the bonded leather sofa with a sponge or a cloth using the mixture. Then dry it completely with a hair dryer.
- Sand over the peeling surface gently with 240-grit sandpaper to remove all the peeling pieces. Avoid sand too much or you may make new cuts on the surface.
- Cover these worn areas with leather repair compound. Dry the compound with the hair dryer set at the lowest power.
- Apply a coat of leather color with the compound applicator or use a brush, follow the manufacturer’s coloring balance instructions. Dry the coating as directed by the manufacturer.
- Sand over the repaired area very lightly with 400-grit sandpaper. Wipe clean with a soft cloth, and then condition the repaired sofa.
