Do you need a deep clean?

Even if your office appears to be clean, you may still be facing substantial problems with mould, dust and bacteria that have quietly mounted up over recent months.

During a deep clean, experienced professionals can attack every part of your office, including not only surfaces touched by employees many times a day, but corners and workspaces that aren’t used so frequently.

The dangers of unclean chairs?

Chairs can become extremely dirty during the working week. They can also harbour bacteria, which can cause illnesses which lead to absenteeism and reduced productivity.

It’s important to remove stains as soon as you spot them. If you’re not sure whether a product is right for the material, you can carry out a test clean on a less conspicuous part of the chair.

Make sure you follow any instructions that might have come with the furniture. Be careful when using chemicals that you are unfamiliar with as it might be dangerous to breathe them in.

Fabric, Leather & Mesh Chairs

Before you start to clean fabric upholstery, remove any crumbs that may have fallen into the chair due to people eating at their desk. Most fabric upholstery can be cleaned with a warm water and soap solution.

The solution and cloth that you use should be free of lint. When it comes to leather chairs, you can use a leather cleaner or rub it with an alcohol and water solution.

Follow the instructions that came with the chair to ensure the method that you’re using is suitable. If you don’t do this, you could risk damaging the chair.

Water-based cleaners are often used to clean faux leather. Mesh chairs can often be cleaned with a damp cloth, but avoid dragging the cloth over the mesh as you could damage it

Plastic & Metal Chairs

Plastic chairs can normally be cleaned down with soap and warm water. Avoid bleach or chlorine as these can ruin the chair.

Distilled vinegar can also get the result results. You could create an abrasive solution with baking soda and a wet sponge.

Lint-free cloths should be used for wooden chairs, with most people using appropriate polishing products. Metal chairs can be wiped with mild soap and a damp cloth.
