Many wise customers have called Commercial Furniture Resource to ask if buying pre-owned furniture for sale in NJ will increase their risk of catching COVID-19. While this is a very reasonable question, we want our customers to feel confident in their health and safety! Read on to find out why buying used furniture from a reputable furniture store is not likely to increase your COVID-19 risk.
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, people were extremely concerned about the risk of touching materials. Cities across the world began disinfecting everything from doorknobs to floors in hopes of eliminating the virus. However, more research has found that the virus cannot last very long on most surfaces. In fact, even on plastic, where the virus has been found to live the longest, the virus usually only remains for a week. Most used furniture hasn’t been touched by live humans for some time, and what furniture store employees touch is cleaned and disinfected regularly.
Clean and Sanitized
Speaking of cleaning, one of the first things that any good furniture refurbishing company will do before putting pre-owned furniture for sale in NJ is to clean it thoroughly. You don’t want stray pen marks on your desk or someone else’s hair on your office chair, which is why preowned furniture retailers do a deep-cleaning of any used or refurbished items.
Reduce In-Person Contact
Science has shown that the most important thing you can do to reduce your risk is reduce your in-person contact.
