Coronavirus has created so many problems for today’s concerned office managers and in a surprise twist, all of a sudden washable, bleachable office furniture fabric is a concern! Who knew that the fabric choices for office furniture and accessories could be so important? It turns out that office managers need to be sure that office resources are able to withstand the intense and constant sanitizing required to maintain a safe working environment. So how can you select office furniture that will hold up to disinfecting the workplace with bleach and other strong cleaners? Let’s take a look at washable and bleach washable fabrics.
Washable Office Furniture Fabrics
We know what washable fabric means. You can’t throw an office chair into the washing machine so it has to be washable by hired cleaners or regular cleaning staff. Any decent office furniture fabric can be wiped clean with water based cleaners.
What is Bleachable Fabric?
Then what is a bleachable fabric? Well, often bleaching is a part of the process of creating fabrics for office furniture, but repeated use of bleach as a cleaning agent has been associated with a harsher wear and tear. This is obviously undesirable for office furniture which has to stand up to rigorous cleaning, but now, clean isn’t enough. With the threat of coronavirus looming over our working environments, we need to go a step further and sanitize.
Most people agree that bleach washing is the gold standard in hygienic cleaning which is so important right now to prevent COVID-19 from upending our offices. While Clorox brand bleach claims that their bleach is not harmful to fabrics when used according to directions, there has been no precedent for the amount of sanitizing and cleaning needed during a pandemic.
