How often should upholstered office chairs be cleaned?

Thursday, Jul. 25th 2013

Office Chair Cleaning-Bock's Steam StarUpholstered office chairs need to be cleaned at least once a year by a professional cleaning service that knows how to remove maximum soil. As you may or may not know, commercial upholstery experiences a lot more daily soiling and wear and tear than residential upholstery. It’s important to keep chairs clean for a positive work environment.

According to the American Association of Dermatologists, the average human sheds about 300 hairs per day, along with roughly 300,000 skin cells. Much of that organic matter winds up on the furniture or in the carpet. Each time a person sits on an office chair, some of that organic soil, along with other soil components, are rendered airborne and becomes breathable. When inhaled by building occupants, we can speculate that sensitive persons will, at best, experience lower productivity and at worst, absenteeism. This has a direct and profound impact on organizational productivity and can increase the cost of doing business and diminish a businesses’ profitability.
