When To Dispose of Old Office Furniture

A pile of old office furniture. Among the clutter, office chairs, computer monitors, printers, and keyboards can be seen.

Office furniture certainly has its ups and downs when it comes to their quality. There’s a pretty significant difference between office furniture that’s good for what it is, and furniture that you should get rid of. You might be asking: “How can you tell the difference?” There are a few signs that you should look for when determining when it’s time to dispose of old office furniture. We’ve identified the most important ones for you to take note of!

It’s A Safety Hazard

When furniture gets worn out, it can sometimes expose parts of it that can be hazardous if you aren’t careful! For example, after years of wear and tear on a couch, certain metal parts of its structure can get exposed. This can lead to avoidable injuries if you aren’t careful when you’re nearby! Workplace injuries can be incredibly serious, but also completely preventable if you take the right precautions. If you have furniture with sharp edges or exposed pieces that could be hazardous, it might be time to say goodbye to it. 

It Takes Up Too Much Space

Sometimes, the furniture you use for your office can be little more than wasted space. How much room is it actually taking up, and how often are you using it? These are two of the biggest questions you need to ask yourself when assessing whether or not your furniture is worth keeping. Maybe it takes up enough space where it’s hard to get around the room! If you find yourself giving unfavorable answers to these questions, it’s a sign that it needs to go.

It Hasn’t Been Used In A While

Chances are, it’s been a pretty long time since you’ve been to the office! As COVID-19 restrictions continue to be lifted, more and more people will be returning to in-person work. Now is the time to assess your furniture’s quality! As furniture goes a long time without regular use, the chances of dust and cobwebs forming on it continues to rise. It goes without saying that these things can lead to an unhealthy working environment. You’ll want to stamp out these problems ASAP if you run into them!
