Customers, business partners and suppliers are all key components of a successful growing business. They often come and visit the office and keeping them comfortable will help establish and continue a good and healthy relationship. But, nothing can be more embarrassing than having to escort your business guests onto a seat with grimy looking upholstery.
Just like you would in your own home, you will want your guests to feel comfortable and at ease in your office to create the perfect environment for business. Having well-kept and well-groomed furniture speaks volumes about the working ethics and vision of your company. First impressions really do count!
Office furniture and partitions capture and collect dust and if these are not thoroughly cleaned, it can lead to dust mites. Dust mites can alter the indoor air quality of an office which can cause allergies because of their droppings, so it’s important to keep on top of cleaning as you don’t want anyone getting sick. Also, always remind your cleaning team to clean furniture upholsteries thoroughly and not just sweep around and under them.
Here we provide some cleaning tips for you that are easy to follow and will help you to keep your office upholstery clean:
- Have your furniture’s upholstery brushed or scrubbed regularly. Remove all loose dirt and dust by using a dusting brush and also vacuum. Always remove the cushions (if they are removable) and give them a separate brushing down, including every side. This will make sure that there won’t be any dirt left in between the cushions once they are reassembled.
- Check for stains on your upholstery. If you are under a tight budget, a simple detergent or cleaning solution and a sponge can go a long way. Just allow the cleaning solution to penetrate the stains for several minutes and wipe the upholstery with a cloth and let it dry. Of course you must check any care instructions first to make sure that the solution you use will not cause more stains, or test it on an inconspicuous area of the furniture.
- For leather seats and covers, it’s important that you do more than just clean them. You have to regularly condition and protect them to keep that glossy and rich quality look. It takes extra special care to clean leather upholstery, but it’s easy to maintain by regularly wiping it down with a clean, dry soft cloth.
Finally, one of the most practical and best ways to maintain clean upholstery in office furniture is to invest money in hiring a professional cleaning company.
