How to Protect Your Office Furniture from Sun Damage

May 5, 2018

It can be quiet easy to ignore the care of your office furniture. Rember though — the appearance of your office is a reflection on your company. Wood furniture is susceptible to sun damage– even though it’s indoors and with neglect can begin to look weathered before its time. Even casual exposure to damaging UV rays can discolor office furniture. With the proper maintenance, you can safeguard your investment for decades to come.

  • Draw The Blinds During Peak Hours. One of the easiest ways to protect your indoor wooden furniture from the sun is to block it by drawing your blinds or installing curtains. The sun is at its highest point from around noon to 3 PM. During those times you can use screens to shade your furniture.
  • Tinted Windows. Tinted window films have built-in UV blockers to eliminate most of the harmful rays from the sun. Typically these window films come in an array of colors to suit the room’s aesthetic.
  • Wood Coatings. Regularly use some a wood finish to protect the natural oils within the wood. After cleaning the wood from any visible debris, use a varnish that will create a coating that will protect the wood from scratches and normal wear and tear.

One of the best ways to protect your wooden furniture is to make sure that it is properly maintained. It should be regularly cleaned, with appropriate spot treatments designed for wood furniture.
