Tips for Maintaining your Partitions & Room Dividers

Tips for Maintaining your Partitions & Room Dividers

When it comes to portable partitions and room dividers, it is important to keep them clean so that they look and function at their best. Not only does this help to maintain their appearance, but it also helps to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. In places with higher footfall, such as retail shops, keeping the surfaces clean reduces the chances of spreading viruses.

Here are a few general tips for cleaning and maintaining your portable partitions and room dividers:

  • Avoid placing partitions near sources of dust or dirt. This will help to keep them clean and free of particles that can accumulate over time.
  • Use a soft, dry cloth to dust partitions regularly. This will help to remove any accumulation of dust or dirt.
  • If partitions become stained, use a mild soap and water solution to clean them. Be sure to rinse thoroughly afterwards so that no soap residue is left behind.
  • In order to prevent scratches, do not place anything sharp on or near partitions.
  • If your partitions or room dividers have removable panels, take them off from time to time and vacuum the backside to remove any dust that has accumulated there.

Maintaining Polycarbonate Room Dividers

Although polycarbonate room dividers are very durable and sturdy, they still require some level of maintenance so that they continue working optimally. If you have portable partitions or room dividers made of polycarbonate, here are some tips for cleaning and maintaining your polycarbonate room dividers.

  1. Start by dusting the surface of the partition with a soft cloth. This will help remove any surface dirt and debris.
  2. If there are any stubborn stains, you can try cleaning them with a mild soap and water solution.
  3. For tougher stains, you may need to use a commercial cleaner specifically designed for polycarbonate surfaces.
  4. Always rinse the partition off with clean water after cleaning it, and dry it with a soft cloth to avoid streaks or spots.
  5. If you will be storing your room divider for an extended period of time, cover it with a cloth to prevent dust accumulation.

Maintaining Fabric Room Dividers

If you have fabric room dividers, you know they are a great way to create privacy in a shared space. But what do you do when they get dirty? Fabric partitions can get dirty and dusty over time and they also require slightly different cleaning methods than solid surfaces.

Here are some of the ways you can clean and maintain it.

  1. One way is to vacuum the surface of the divider with the upholstery attachment. This will help remove any dirt or dust that has accumulated on the fabric.
  2. If there are any spots or stains on the fabric, you can try spot cleaning them with a mild soap and water solution. Dip a clean cloth into the solution and blot at the stained area until it lifts.
  3. You can also try using a commercial fabric cleaner, following the instructions on the packaging.
  4. Once you have finished cleaning the fabric, make sure it is completely dry before using the room divider again.
