Should you living room has some form of direct sun during part of the day, draw the curtains to protect the sofa.
Clean the sofa regularly
Vacuuming the sofa especially at the crevices or under the cushions is recommended. Clean spills immediately with soft lint cloth. Typically leather sofa is very durable, it withstands spills pretty well. However, do avoid harsh chemical on the sofa, using nail polish remover on a leather sofa for example, is not wise. We might want to be careful with certain essential oil as well.
