Office Furniture Maintenance, tips to prolong its life span
On its surface, you may think that buying office furniture in CBD is the end of the task and to a very large extent, it does relieve you of a lot of worries. That said, if you take deliberate care of your business, you can stay assured that you will actually save a ton of costs in the long run.
Two avenues where you will clearly save more money are buying new furniture and repairing the existing one. Hence, it is extremely important to take care of the furniture right after you have planned to buy office chairs and tables.
We have been helping businesses throughout the planning, purchasing and installation phases. Usually, several business operators ask us about the average life of office furniture or how to enhance it. If these questions have ever crossed your mind, you will find the answers right here:
1. Minimize office furniture maintenance costs by optimizing the installation.
We provide businesses with free delivery across all major CBDs in Australia. That said, we charge a small fee for installation. Why? Because we bring on board some of the most trained and experienced servicemen who help in the installation of the furniture and there is a tangible value provided by such servicemen.
Any piece of furniture, that is not installed optimally, is bound to increase costs than it actually should. For instance, assume, that you decided to buy office workstations. You got the free delivery on time buy you called some random guy to come and install it for you. As a result, the furniture was not installed properly.
Now, this may result in risk to the structural integrity of the furniture and might even pose health risks upon the people who will use it. Additionally, at some point or another, either you will have to get it all fixed or you will simply have to replace this piece of furniture before its useful life is over. This is where precise installations add tremendous value.
2. Get it serviced – frequently.
This is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your office furniture stays in a fresh and usable condition. The cost of repainting and lubricating your office furniture will always remain lesser than the cost you might have to bear while trying to replace the furniture.
This is the reason why several businesses, immediately after having decided to buy boardroom tables, ask the vendor on how to increase its longevity. Definitely, you should not be jumping on it; but, at the same time, it really helps the furniture if you keep it painted, lubricated and protected from any germs/bacteria that may cause the wood to decay.
3. When it comes to taking care of your office furniture, frugality does not really help.
You may feel like a creative genius when you have used a wooden patch to take care of the crack on the table or when you have used a stub of paper to balance the legs of your desk – but you are only putting your office furniture maintenance. In the longer run, it saves costs if you take care of such smaller issues instead of putting them off or simply using irrelevant solutions. You take care of your furniture, and your furniture will take care of your employee’s productivity.
