Office settings have a variety of furniture surfaces. From chrome and laminate to cloth and leather, and then of course wood. Wood furniture requires special attention to clean and care for it, and prevent it from showing wear. Let’s take a look at how to clean wood office furniture.

How To Clean Wood Office Furniture

Wood Furniture Cleaning Products

When cleaning wood furniture in your office or workplace, you want to make sure the products that are used and the treatment of the surface are both acceptable for wood. Wood furniture, like wood flooring, should not be saturated with water or treated with other harsh chemicals. Reading the labels of all cleaning products before use is essential to keeping wood furniture looking good for many years to come. If a new cleaning product is being used on the wood surface, it’s best to test it in an inconspicuous space before using it all over. Reviewing the surface after it has dried to see how it fairs with the wood finish is also a good idea.

After the cleaning solution has been reviewed for its recommended use, applying it to the wood furniture should be done with a soft cotton cloth. Fingerprints and greasy hand impressions can be polished out with the solution, taking care not to use too much, but enough to remove the grime and shine up the surface.

Wood Polishing

Continue to apply the wood cleaning or polishing solution to the entire wood surface areas on the office chairs, tables, and other wood office furniture and accessories. Addressing the tops of furniture as well as the legs, arms, and sides will give the furniture a nice clean appearance. Polishing and cleaning wood also requires a more gentle touch than vinyl, plastic, or metal. A mild pressure is likely all you’ll need.

Dusting Wood Office Furniture

Wood office furniture might not need a deep clean or polish on each scheduled cleaning, but keeping wood office furniture looking its best should incorporate a regular dusting. A clean wool cloth or cotton duster will do a great job of collecting dust and removing it from the wood furniture’s surface.

Dusting your wood furniture’s surface on a routine basis while alternating a deeper clean or polish will ensure a nice appearance over time.
