Tips for Caring for MDF Laminate Standing Desk Tops


MDF laminate desk tops offer a sleek and durable surface that is partially resistant to scratches, moisture, and everyday wear. To preserve their quality and visual appeal, here are some tips to help preserve your standing desk. 

  1. Regular Cleaning: Wipe the surface with a soft, microfibre cloth to remove dust and dirt. For stubborn stains, use a mild alcohol and gently clean the area. Avoid abrasive cleaners that can damage the laminate on your standing desk. 

  2. Avoid Excessive Moisture: While MDF laminate is moisture-resistant, it's best to prevent prolonged exposure to liquids. Wipe spills immediately to prevent any potential damage and leakage into the MDF. 

  3. Protection from Heat: Use coasters or heat-resistant pads under hot objects like mugs or laptops to prevent heat-related damage.

  4. Avoid Sharp Objects: Although MDF laminate is durable, it can still be scratched by sharp objects. Use protective pads or mats when working with tools or writing instruments to prevent any scratches to your adjustable standing desk.
