Laminate office furniture is incredibly durable and easy to maintain. Unlike veneer and solid wood, laminate doesn’t scratch easily and is resistant to most stains. In order to maintain the longest possible life and appearance out of your laminate office furniture, be sure to follow these care tips.
- Clean laminate office furniture with a mild, non-abrasive cleaning solution and a soft cloth. Another option is to clean with water and a mild soap. Be sure to dry the laminate after cleaning. Note that bleach must be diluted at a 1:10 ratio in order to be considered “mild” while still disinfecting.
- Coffee, grease or other difficult stains may be removed using a mild household detergent or a paste of baking soda and water. Please note that 10-20 gentle strokes should remove most stains, excessive force or scrubbing with a brush may damage the surface. As with regular cleaning, dry the laminate once the stain has been removed.
- Protect the laminate office furniture from hot objects by placing a trivet underneath. Avoid setting hot pots and dishes directly on the surface of laminate furniture as it can damage the surface.
- Scratches can ruin laminate furniture. Try and pick items up rather than dragging them across the desk surface. Do not use knives and other sharp objects directly on the laminate, protect it with a chopping block or counter protector instead.
These simple and easy instructions are just one of the many reasons we build our office furniture with laminate. With proper care and maintenance, laminate office furniture will bring years of quality performance.
