Generally located in medium to large office spaces, cubicles are personal workstations divided by partitions. Often, upholstery covers cubicle walls, much like the fabric that covers an office chair. Because the fibers of cubicle wall upholstery can trap dust particles and other harmful allergens, office workers should sweep these surfaces at least once a year to enhance the overall air quality. Also, spot cleaning tough stains with a liquid treatment helps keep cubicle walls clean.

Step 1

Remove all posters, photos and decorative notions from cubicle walls, and set aside. Clear the desk area of large objects that will interfere with sweeping.

Step 2

Using your vacuum cleaner's hose, attach a head with a flat surface. With the vacuum turned on, sweep each cubicle wall from top to bottom using the hose attachment. Move slowly to pick up dust, soil and other allergens deeply trapped within the wall upholstery.

Step 3

Mix 1 quart of warm water with 1/4 cup of laundry detergent in a bucket. Stir until mixture is filled with suds. Using a scrub brush, apply the mixture to stains and other discolored areas of cubicle walls. Using a circular motion, scrub the stains until they are no longer visible, and remove extra soap suds with a damp rag.

Step 4

Sweep the office floor, and dust all surfaces and file cabinets often to remove allergens before they enter cubicle walls. Repeat this process as often as needed to keep a clean and allergen-free workspace.
