No doubt about it, regular vacuuming and wiping down of upholstered furniture and panels in your office is key to keeping the environment looking good on a daily basis. Over time, however, dirt, grime, spills and even pen marks can take their toll on upholstered surfaces, making them look tired and worn. Periodic deep cleaning will keep upholstery looking like new. Following are prime reasons why you should clean your upholstered office furniture regularly.
Office furniture endures much more wear and tear than similar pieces in your home. Multiple individuals track in dirt from daily commuting. Pens and pencils can be dropped, leaving their own marks. Commercial upholstery should receive a professional deep steam cleaning at least once a year. For heavy use situations, clean upholstery twice a year. A brighter, better-looking office provides a better business atmosphere for your clients and employees alike.
Ground-in dirt, stains, and pen marks shorten the life of upholstered furniture by making it look dingy and unattractive. When furniture does not undergo deep steam cleaning, stains and marks can eventually become permanent. Professional cleaners employ methods that easily remove pen marks. Longer usable furniture life will more than recoup the money spent on professional cleaners.
Upholstery harbors many different organisms, many of which can actually make you sick. Foremost on the list are dust mites. Chairs and sofas that are never cleaned literally harbor clouds of dust, not only on the surface but in the padding deep inside. Along with dust, upholstery can harbor many different types of allergens and harmful organisms such as mold, bacteria, pollen and even viruses. These organisms can be released into the environment each time someone sits down on a sofa or chair. Deep cleaning removes many more organisms than surface cleaning.
