Office Furniture: How to Keep it Looking Good

Chair mats help to protect flooring

Even high-quality office furniture can suffer from wear and tear over time. Therefore, you want to get the most bang out of your buck by learning how to maintain your office furniture. If you feel as if you need to replace your office furniture, then we have deals on high-quality office equipment. However, if you feel as if your office furniture has a little more life left in it, then here are some tips on how to keep your office furniture looking brand new. 

Tighten the Screws On Your Office Chairs Twice a Year

Over time, the screws on office chairs become loose, which makes sense. Employees who work at an office spend most of their time sitting at their desks. To combat this, you can tighten the office chair bolts twice a year. You can tighten most office chairs with a simple wrench.

Use a Desk Blotter to Protect Your Desks

Using a desk surface to take notes can cause imprints and scratches. You can use a desk blotter or desk pad to write things down. Desk blotters serve as a layer of protection between your pen or pencil. We also suggest that you use coasters because they, too, act as a layer of protection against beverages. 

Chair Mats Help to Protect Your Floor

Here at Mark Downs, we not only provide office furniture, but we specialize in office accessories as well, such as chair mats. Office workers spend a lot of time rolling around in their chairs, which helps to markup a floor. We offer chair mats that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles that will fit your specific office needs.

Get Rid of Clutter

Regularly dusting your office space as well as getting rid of unnecessary clutter will help keep it brand new looking. Offices hold a lot of essential documents, so also make sure that you file and store them properly. Go paperless or invest in a file cabinet. Whatever you do, it doesn’t help to have files or office items thrown all over the place. Seriously, get serious about storage.
