Wood, Laminate and Upholstery Care Guidelines

Proper care of your office furniture will preserve its value and like-new appearance. Following are general guidelines for care of your Indiana Furniture desks, casegoods, tables, and seating.

Wood Surfaces

Use a damp, soft cloth to dust work surfaces and always wipe with the grain. If you choose to polish, we recommend a non-wax liquid product. Do not use any waxy polish or cleaner. Liquid spills should be wiped up immediately with a soft, damp cloth. Heavy objects such as printers, fax machines, etc. should not be placed directly on the wood surface, but should have felt spacer pads beneath them. Avoid direct sun exposure on wood surfaces as the sun’s rays may cause discoloration or fading of the wood finish. Also avoid exposing your furniture to excessively low or high humidity or extreme temperature variations.

Laminate Surfaces

Use a damp, soft cloth with a mild soap and water solution to clean laminate work surfaces, and always wipe with the grain. Dry with a soft cloth to avoid spotting or streaking. Do not use any waxy polish or cleaner. Liquid spills should be wiped up immediately with a soft, damp cloth.

Seating

Use a damp, soft cloth to dust hard surfaces and always wipe with the grain. If you choose to polish, we recommend a non-wax liquid product. Do not use any waxy polish or cleaner. Protect seating from direct sun exposure as the sun’s rays may cause discoloration or fading of upholstery and wood finishes.

Upholstery
