How to Clean Office Furniture and Why it is Necessary

Many company owners avoid the added expense of company furniture cleaning. It’s understandable. Running a business is expensive and time-consuming. When do owners have an opportunity to take a step back, breathe, and have their furniture cleaned?

Luckily, we can help make the process easier at OnTime Steam Cleaning. Based in New York, we work with companies in and around New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. Our services include furniture cleaning, multiple-surface floor cleaning, air duct cleaning, and more. Your business is our priority. We understand that cleaning must be done quickly, efficiently, and effectively.

If you’ve noticed your office furniture getting dusty or dirty, consider having each piece steam cleaned by a team of professionals. Company furniture cleaning can improve the first impression potential customers get when they walk through your door. It can also improve the comfort (and work ethic) of your employees. Wouldn’t you rather work in a clean desk chair than a dirty one?

So, how does the process work? There are plenty of questions we’ve been asked by company owners – many of them valid. Rather than hashing it out over the phone, we’ll give you a list of popular questions and answers right here.

The first question we often receive is, “How do I know when my furniture needs to be cleaned?” The answer is more complicated than most owners like to hear. Your furniture should be cleaned at least once per year – but the exact timeline depends on each specific piece.

At OnTime Steam Cleaning, we recognize that every material and design requires a unique handling method. For example, we wouldn’t use the same process to clean your hardwood floors and your carpeted floors. That wouldn’t be efficient.

When we step into your business, we inspect each piece individually. From there, we determine which process will be most effective.

Ultimately, you’ll know when your furniture needs to be cleaned because the color will fade and you’ll notice an overall damper in air quality. Even if you don’t see visible stains, furniture that’s been allowed to accrue dust and microorganisms for several years should be cleaned as soon as possible.

Another question we hear often is, “What will company furniture cleaning accomplish?”

Usually, when one business attempts to sell its services to another, the service isn’t worth the cost. Furniture cleaning, however, is well worth the investment. Not only will the air quality in your business improve, but dust, mildew, mold, and other allergens will be safely eradicated. Your employees and yourself will get sick less often. To top it off, potential customers will have a better first impression of your company.

OnTime Steam Cleaning professionals use only the latest technology to clean your furniture. We want to ensure that you’ll be happy with the results. As such, we carry equipment that cleans virtually every type of upholstery available. This includes velvet and cotton. Our team also removes stains, restores color, and ultimately revives your upholstery.

As a final bonus, our experts can deodorize your equipment and apply a stain-resistant protective coating. All of these steps come together to protect your furniture from future damage and to improve your overall satisfaction with the cleanliness of your company.

We’re also often asked, “What makes your team the best for our company?”

We have plenty of answers! First, our expert technicians have an Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We complete all of our services in line with that certification. Our team enrolls in regular training to learn advanced and reliable cleaning techniques. These certifications and classes are used to identify the best cleaning and restoration agencies in the country.

The bottom line? We know our stuff. We aren’t going to sell you cleaning and restoration that you don’t need. We’re going to provide honest opinions and excellent service. That’s part of our mission – and also why we’re more than qualified to keep your business spotless.

Finally, customers like to ask, “How can I maintain my furniture until you come back?”

This is our favorite question. The more proactive businesses are with the cleanliness of their space, the less our company is needed. While you should always get your furniture, carpets, and floors cleaned often, furniture can be maintained for short periods of time with routine vacuuming and stain removal.

You can complete this process yourself on a weekly or monthly basis – or you can choose to hire a janitorial company. Either way, maintaining the equipment you have on hand is far cheaper than purchasing new equipment altogether. Many business owners learn that lesson the hard way.
