Soft surfaces may harbor bacteria longer due to their difficulty cleaning. However, new fabrics and fabrication techniques incorporate anti-microbial agents which can help keep your space cleaner and safer. You can also use color to indicate social distancing by using different color fabrics to create smaller groupings of furniture strategically placed throughout a space.
Another area of your space to consider is the ceiling. Armstrong offers “Clean Room” ceiling tiles which are anti-microbial and washable; and Pinnacle Lighting offers “Indigo Clean” light fixtures with bacteria-killing agents. These products can be easily retrofitted into an existing ceiling grid.
