Here’s tips for maintaining office furniture: Modular Office Desk
In order to prolong the useful life and good condition of the office furniture, some preventive measures and constant maintenance can be applied. We share some ideas right away.
Covered desks, storage units and other elements of laminated plastic
Furniture with this type of finish requires a very simple maintenance: a sponge or flannel is dampened with a mixture of water with neutral soap or another cleaner that does not contain abrasive agents, is passed through the whole furniture and then dried with another cloth or flannel. As a third stage, the furniture can be rubbed with a very soft dry cloth that will help to bring out the touch of characteristic brilliance of the material. It is essential to measure the amount of water, it should not be used too much, especially on the banks, since it can filter and swell the wood of the inner layers of the boards.
It is not advisable to use oils or waxes on the plastic laminate because it is not a porous material and therefore will not absorb, leaving the surface “dirty”, which will hinder to work.
As advice for people working on this type of surfaces, it is recommended to place a cup holder if you are going to consume a cup of tea or hot coffee to prevent the material from being marked or mistreated.
The most commonly used office fabrics are acrylic and polyester fibers, so the best way to keep them clean is by vacuuming at least every 15 days or by wiping with a slightly damp cloth to prevent dust buildup.
In the event that any liquid falls on the fabric, a damp cloth or sponge can be placed without carving so that the spilled liquid is absorbed little by little exerting a slight pressure. If the stain will take several days, it will be necessary to rub it with foam of some detergent solution removes stains and carve until it disappears, starting from the outside of the stain and towards the center. In the case of detergent removers, it is recommended to do a small test first to confirm that the fabric will not discolor.
Metal elements with electrostatic painting
Maintenance of these parts should be done using a sponge or damp flannel to clean with a mixture of water and neutral soap. You have to rub, then rinse with clean water and finally dry thoroughly.
Electrostatic painting does not require waxing or polishing and resists very well when indoors. Be careful not to use abrasive substances and that the cloth used is very soft to avoid scratching the paint.
The fabric of the chairs is cleaned in the same way as the rest of the upholstery elements.
It is advisable to check that the screws and mechanisms are tightened in place and the plastic parts should also be cleaned with a cloth or sponge with water and neutral soap, then dry.
