Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.



Normal cleaning

Wash the laminate with a soft cloth and a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a clean soft cloth. For minor repair of burns or other stubborn marks, apply a nonabrasive liquid kitchen cleanser with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. Rub in the direction of the grain; use caution to avoid damaging the surface texture or gloss. If no grain direction is visible, rub with a light, circular motion.

Do not use powdered abrasives or other harsh cleansers like hypochlorite bleach, hydrogen peroxide, nitric or hydrochloric acids, or lye; they may deface the surface and change the finish color.

Wood & Veneer

Normal cleaning

Dust furniture daily with a slightly damp soft lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain.

Once a month

Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean dry cloth.

Twice a year

Apply a good quality furniture polish with a clean soft cloth.Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes.Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.

Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches 

Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulates the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.

Coated Metal

Normal cleaning

Wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the instructions on the label. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen. 

Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish.

For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Care Representative.

Desk is fine, customer service is not
This is a nice desk, but for the price, I was surprised to find it's made in China. Also, the shipping date they give you when you are checking out is a LIE and Herman Miller knows it! You will get your desk when they are ready to give it to you. Mine arrived three weeks after the promised date, and several times throughout the process, HM promised me an earlier date. Buyer beware...

Best desk ever
Awesome desk, beautiful, functional and week built

Sublimely beautiful, sturdy, ergonomically delicious!
5 years in, used 8 to 12 hours a day, this desk is one of the best presents I've ever given myself. Impossible to rave enough about the attention to detail of the design, the materials, the craftsmanship, the comfort. I'm not a gentle user of furniture, and because of the fine material, the off-white top is still unblemished. I would marry this desk if I could.

Design that is beautiful, not too much..not too less but just right and is so functional.
Even a single sight of this creation fills me with such joy! Marvellous! Just Marvellous!

Great Desk
Very well thought out and very comfortable to work on. Plenty of storage for cables in the raised piece on the back and plenty of holes cut underneath to thread cables through. Looks very nice in our home with a nice Apple monitor on top.
