When cleaning an office space, upholstery is sometimes overlooked, and that is a bad thing. It is more common to find people cleaning floors, desks, and windows without ever giving thought to the chairs in an office. Think about the amount of time your employees spend sitting at their desks? Then think about the places or things their clothing may have touched. Most who work in offices throughout Manhattan tend to commute via public transportation. All the lousy stuff picked up on pants, shirts, and coats can potentially make a new home in your employee’s chair. Chairs can get dirty, and you should keep them clean because:
Appearance in an office matters— as dirt builds up in a chair, it will begin to have its colors fade. Clean chairs will keep them looking new, which is appealing to any potential client who is in your office.
The health of your employees— mold and bacteria can live in upholstery without anyone knowing it. You do not want your employees to breath this in all day long because it can make them sick and trigger allergy symptoms.
Air quality— keeping upholstery clean will help maintain good air quality in your office. Air will taste fresher, and it will not have a bad odor.
Improve lifespan of upholstery— being diligent with cleaning will ensure that the chair looks better for more extended periods of time. If you intend to use chairs for extended periods of time, you will want to make sure you keep them clean.
