How to Maximize the Life Of Your Newly Purchased Classroom FurnitureHow to Maximize the Life Of Your Newly Purchased Classroom Furniture

In August, before all of the students show up for school, a teacher might take a step back and take in the beauty of his or her classroom. He or she might observe fresh desks organized in neat rows or spotless carpets and whiteboards (just waiting to be written on). Perhaps the teacher might enjoy the sight of newly purchased classroom furniture and school supplies that adorn the room.

Once the students arrive, a classroom’s furniture will be exposed to dozens and hundreds maybe even thousands of students day after day. Kids of every size and age will sit in the same chairs, use the same desks, and walk on the same carpets.

School furniture is vulnerable to damage from everyday wear and tear, or to just not being taken care of properly. There are a number of precautions teachers and school faculty can take to protect school furniture and prevent damage from occurring.

1. Buy Quality Furniture

If you want school furniture that looks good and lasts a long time, then don’t waste your time or money purchasing cheap school furniture. Shop with a well-respected and dependable school furniture supplier, such as School Outlet.

2. Take Care of Your Furniture Once You Get It

Buying quality furniture might be the first step in ensuring your school furniture looks nice and functions properly for months and hopefully years to come. But if you really want your classroom furniture to stay nice and work properly, you have to take care of it!

3. Clean Your Furniture Properly

If you purchase wood furniture for your classroom, for example, you are going to have to clean it differently than you might clean plastic furniture. Wood furniture should be cleaned with water and mild dish soap. Also, it’s a good idea to keep wood furniture out of direct sunlight and away from heating units and vents.

4. Clean Your Furniture Often

It’s a fact of life: kids get bored in class. And what do they do when they get bored? Write on desks, stick gum under desks, and mess with broken parts of desks. To avoid stains sticking around on classroom desks, chairs, and other pieces of furniture clean your classroom furniture often, in addition to cleaning it properly. Also, try to keep students occupied as best you can!
