Your office furniture gets a lot of use throughout the year. Heck, it gets a lot of use throughout the day. It might get dirty and it might even start to get worn. Most of your upholstery will probably be office chairs and couches, both at desks and conference tables, but in waiting rooms and lobbies, too. These types of upholstered seating pieces will get a lot of use throughout the day. Not only will a lot of people be using these areas, but there will also be meetings where food and drink are involved. Put those two together and there is bound to be some spilling and messes on your office upholstered furniture. Let’s discuss how to keep your office upholstery looking good.
How to Keep your Office Upholstery Looking Good
Preventing Office Upholstery Stains
One of the best ways to keep your upholstered furniture looking great for a long time is by preventing messes from occurring in the first place. While you probably can’t avoid using your furniture during office meals and snack times, keeping cleaning supplies within easy reach can go a long way to help office staff take care of any spills as they happen. It can be as simple as providing cleaning towels, paper towels, and a mild upholstery cleaner nearby. You can also supply a simple soap and water spray to make sure the clean up is gentle on the fabric. If you are concerned about a special upholstery fabric, make sure to check the label on the item and follow the recommendations for the cleaning process.
Another way to prevent stains from taking hold on your upholstered office furniture is to vacuum the chairs on a daily basis or as these areas are used. This type of task can be worked into your regular cleaning schedule on an as-needed basis. Keeping crumbs and other debris from sitting on the upholstery prevents others from sitting on the furniture while it’s dirty, further grounding in the crumbs. This is also a good time to make note of stains that have gone untreated and takes steps to address those. Regular vacuuming and stain removal will prevent the dirt from being ground into the surface and cause wear on the material as well as permanent stains from setting in.
Office Upholstery Cleaning
It’s inevitable – in a high traffic space like an office, your furniture upholstery is going to get dirty and start to see some wear. Trying to keep it a bay as long as possible is the goal. But, when you start to notice stains becoming more long-lasting on your upholstered chairs and office furniture, it’s time to consider a good shampoo cleaning. The best time is during your carpet cleaning. And, if you are cleaning your carpets on a recurrent schedule every quarter, consider putting your office upholstery into that schedule so the fabric is cleaned at a regular frequency and doesn’t have time to build up dirt and grime. And, as before with spot cleaning, make sure to read the labels so you are confident the cleaners and procedures are safe for your type of upholstery material.
