Faux Leather Sofa Is Peeling?

February 6, 2017

I have a "leather like" sofa that has spots where it is peeling away. What can I do to fix it or just prevent it from getting worse?

I feel your pain. I had this, didnt address it and now my couch looks horrible!

I looked here there seems to be a tutorial:

and also these guys have this to say: "When fake leather begins to peel and crack, a vinyl and leather repair kit with included tints allows you to make a repair that closely matches the shade of the material."

Or here: "To properly repair faux leather, you'd begin by applying a repair compound like our FC1 Soft Filler to create a new vinyl-like surface. This creates water repellency and reflects light similarly to the original material. Dyeing the repair is the final step (or perhaps a coat of Clear Prep+Finish for more luster). However, any new coating on an already unstable surface will add more weight, accelerate wear, and ultimately suffer the same fate."

There should not be any humidity in the air so try a dehumidifier specially if you are cooking/or hot summer days. Try buying sofa cover as well because our body gives off heat and moisture.

How did you clean it but it seems to have a residue type to it.

Any tips on How to peel it all off? Did you use a product? I am in the process of it and so far I am scraping it away with a spatula. It seems like it will take a long time.
