How do I Buy Affordable, Quality Furniture for My Facility?

When outfitting your facility with furniture, it’s essential to prioritize not only affordability and quality but also factors like cleanability and fluid resistance. Part Two of our series focuses on the importance of cleanability in upholstered furniture, highlighting innovative technologies like Crypton© fabric, which offers exceptional stain resistance and ease of cleaning. Additionally, we’ll explore the concept of fluid-resistant furniture design, which takes cleanliness and maintenance to a new level, especially in high-traffic environments.

What do I Need to Know Before Buying Quality Furniture for My Facility?

Part Two: Clean-ability

  • Clean-ability. – Upholstered furniture tends to play center stage of a facilities’ common area and visible stains can be a real distraction for staff, customers and clients.  While upholstery technology and design does not get a whole lot of attention, there are in fact many new advances for upholstery protection. 
  • Why buy Crypton©?  Crypton© fabric is a revolutionary textile technology offering exceptional stain resistance, durability, and ease of cleaning thanks to its unique submersion application technique, which ensures comprehensive protection. Its barrier is permanent with proper care and effective against bacteria and microbes, making it ideal for healthcare settings or any environment where hygiene is crucial. Despite its advanced protective features, Crypton© maintains the look and feel of ordinary fabric, allowing for aesthetic versatility in various settings. Cleaning this fabric is simple, requiring only a moderate detergent and water. It stands out for its long-lasting quality, making it a practical and cost-effective choice for the best of both worlds.

Part Three: Fluid-Resistance

  • Fluid-Resistance – The concept of fluid-resistant furniture design, especially in contract furniture, takes cleanliness and maintenance to a new level. This innovative design approach incorporates features like pop-out and clean-out seats that actively facilitate fluid drainage, preventing liquid from pooling on the furniture. The design cleverly channels fluids away from critical areas, allowing them to flow to the floor. This method dramatically simplifies clean-up tasks, as it usually requires just a mop and bucket to manage the spill on the floor, significantly reducing the amount of liquid that comes into contact with the upholstery. Moreover, this furniture design ensures that the upholstery remains mostly fluid-free, minimizing the need for extensive fabric cleaning and maintenance. Such a feature is precious in settings where spills are frequent, such as healthcare facilities, dining establishments, and public spaces. Additionally, the foam used inside these cushions is typically chosen for its resistance to fluid absorption. This means that even when spills occur, the interior cushioning will likely remain unaffected, ensuring the longevity and hygiene of both the upholstery and the cushion core.
