With the right care and maintenance, a workstation can last for years. Here are a few tips to keep your partition in good condition:
Be careful when you’re moving desks.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when moving your desk:
Don’t move the desk by yourself. It’s always a good idea to have two people on hand when it comes time to relocate your office furniture.
Don’t lift the desk by its legs or frame, as these can be damaged easily and lead to structural problems that are expensive to repair later on down the line. Instead, use an adjustable dolly or furniture glider for moving large pieces of equipment around in your workspace.
Don’t drag desks across floors; this can cause scratches or scuffs that may result in uneven surfaces once you’ve settled into place at a new location (and could even weaken floorboards over time). If there’s no other option than dragging something across hardwood floors or carpeting (like rolling chairs), do so gently so as not to damage either surface material!
Don’t force your furniture.
In the same way you don’t want your desk to be too heavy, you don’t want it to be too light. If it’s too light, you may find yourself pulling on the drawers or cabinets in an effort to move it. This can lead to damage over time.
The best thing to do is use common sense and try not to force any of your furniture—especially the workstation!
Keep spilled liquids wiped up promptly.
Spilled liquids, even water, can ruin your workstation. It’s important to clean up spills immediately so that they don’t cause any damage to your office furniture. If you have a spill on your desk or in front of it, wipe it up with a dry cloth or paper towel. You should never use the same cloth or paper towel over and over because they will just spread the liquid around instead of absorbing it.
If you have carpeted floors in your workplace, make sure to keep them clean by vacuuming once per week (or daily if there are lots of people working there).
Inspect for damage regularly.
It’s important to inspect your partitions regularly for damage. You can check for scratches, dents and cracks; dust; rust; and loose hardware. When you find signs of wear, clean the area immediately.
Clean the partitions and hardware on a regular basis.
You’ll want to regularly clean the partitions and other hardware in your workstation. The easiest way to do this is with a mild soap and water solution, which you can mix up at home. Mix equal parts liquid dish soap with warm water, then use a towel or soft cloth to wipe down the surfaces of your partitions. Make sure it’s not too wet—you don’t want to leave behind any streaks! Don’t forget about cleaning out the vents at the bottom of each partition as well; if those are clogged with dust or crumbs, it could cause overheating problems for your computer.
If there are any stains on your hardware (or even just general grime buildup), there are products out there specifically designed for cleaning high-traffic areas such as cubicles; these include Swiffer Sweeper Dry Sweeping Cloths (for dry mopping) and WetJet Multi Surface Cleaner (for damp wiping). If these aren’t available where you work—or if they’re too expensive—a microfiber cloth will also do just fine! Just remember: don’t use harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that might damage sensitive components like keyboards and monitors
Following these tips will save you money and headache in the long run.
The end of the workweek is rapidly approaching, and you’re in the middle of a big project. You’ve been working on this particular project for weeks now, and it’s finally coming together—but your partition has been acting funny lately. It keeps freezing up, or it crashes entirely. You’ve tried all the standard solutions to fix it: rebooting multiple times in a row; restarting the computer and then shutting down once again; clearing out some space on your hard drive to give yourself more memory for running programs; calling tech support for help when none of these things worked.
It’s only a matter of time before you have to invest in an entirely new workstation at this rate! The good news is that there are some simple things you can do today that will help keep your partitions running smoothly over their lifetime—and save you money and headaches down the road!
And don’t forget, a lot of these tips can be applied to other pieces of furniture as well. For example, if you spill some liquid on your desk, wipe it up immediately so that it doesn’t damage the wood or leave stains behind that might ruin its beauty. In addition to caring for your partitions and hardware, be sure to keep them clean regularly so they look their best at all times!
