Is It Important to Condition Leather Seats?

It really is hard to complain about the weather in California. Sunshine and warmth almost all year round is pretty nice, there are plenty of people who would love to experience it. You won’t find many people who would easily give that experience up. 

There are some bad things about the constant sunshine, though. It’s not as perfect as you might think at first. The sun will start to affect the health of your car if it sits out in the sunlight, especially if you have leather seats. Cracking and splitting is inevitable if you don’t stop to take care of your car’s seats from time to time. 

How Often Should I Condition Leather Seats? 

Parking in the shade or investing in seat covers are some of the most common ways to protect leather seats, but they aren’t foolproof. One of the best ways to help heal your seats is with a good leather conditioner and proper cleaning. Conditioning and cleaning seats will do wonders towards keeping your seats looking young and fresh.

The first thing you should do is spot test any cleaner and conditioner you use to make sure they are the right make for your seats. Always make sure your seats are vacuumed and free of debris before you start cleaning to prevent any scratches. You should thoroughly clean your seats every month to make sure nothing builds up. Conditioning your seats a few times a year should protect them but working in another conditioning day couldn’t hurt with how sunny Redding can be.
