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 or stained, and will eventually begin to look worn. Most of your upholstered office furniture will probably be in the form of office chairs and couches, and located at desks and conference tables as well as in waiting rooms and lobbies. Employees and clients will give your upholstered furniture a lot of use, plus food and drink may be 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.
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 coffee and snack times, keeping cleaning supplies within easy reach can go a long way to help employees take care of any spills as they happen. It can be as simple as easy accessibility to cleaning towels, paper towels, and a mild upholstery cleaner. You can also supply a simple soap and water spray to make sure the clean-up is gentle on the upholstery fabric. If you are concerned about how best to clean a particular 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 regular basis. This 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. Regular furniture cleaning 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 your upholstered furniture and odors beginning to form.
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 once you start to notice stains becoming more long-lasting on your upholstered chairs and office furniture, it’s time for a good shampooing. The best time to clean your upholstered office furniture 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 the chance to build up dirt and grime. And, just like 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.
