You may think little of it but your company’s reception area is the face of your office. It’s where everything starts because it’s where every applicant and business partner steps in first. It’s, therefore, necessary to have your upholstery in the reception area thoroughly cleaned and on a regular basis. Here are a few problems that an unclean upholstered sofa can bring.
Pests – Bedbugs, mites and ticks, you name it. Any item that isn’t aired or cleaned regularly can be considered a haven for small critters crawling around in your office. These are pretty hard to see since they are so small so be ready to just start scratching where they bit you.
Germs – Germs spread and multiple easily. Apart from germs, upholstery can also house spores, moulds and fungus that can make germ growth even faster. Continuous use of the sofa by many individuals not only feeds these germs but carry them elsewhere. Asthma, skin asthma, skin rashes are just some of the diseases you can get with an unclean couch.
Bad Smell – This may be the most insignificant after-effect of any dirty office furniture but it is still the most noticeable. And spraying the couch with air freshener is only a temporary fix since the reason for the smell is deep-seated dirt and grime that have seeped into the furniture. Get expert commercial upholstery cleaners to give your leather seats and couches a regular run-through just so you are assured that everything is clean.
If you expect to close business deals, you need to take care of your reception furniture. As a matter of fact, all your office furniture must go through regular professional cleaning. Remember, first impressions last so make sure that all your furniture that your future customers and business partners come in contact with become memorable to them in a positive way.
