If you’ve invested in new Versare room dividers, acoustical panels, cubicles, or other partitions for your business, healthcare facility, school, or church, it’s important to take good care of them so they last. Proper cleaning and disinfection is a key part of maintaining your Versare partitions and ensuring the health safety of your people. Follow this guide to keep your partitions clean and looking their best for years to come.
ROOM DIVIDERS AND ACOUSTICAL PARTITIONS
To sustain the professional appearance of your room dividers and acoustical partitions, spot cleaning may be required periodically. Below are Versare’s recommended cleaning procedures for each type of product material.
The easiest and safest way to clean polycarbonate is with a mild soap, such as dishwashing liquid, and a non-abrasive cloth or sponge. Avoid using ammonia or alcohol-based products like Windex or Lysol as they may damage the surface or coating of the panels over time. To disinfect, use a diluted bleach solution (the CDC recommends a solution of 1/3 cup bleach to 1 gallon of water).
For dust or dry debris, vacuum panels with an upholstery attachment. To spot clean fabric panels, dampen a non-abrasive cloth or soft nylon brush with a mild water-based soap and water solution. Lightly brush the working area, being careful to avoid over-dampening the fabric’s surface. Towel dry after cleaning. If using a fabric cleaner for spot treatment, lightly mist the area to loosen soil before cleaning. Always test cleaners in an inconspicuous area first.
