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.


Coated Metal

For 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.

Polished Aluminum

For normal cleaning, apply a pre-softened paste wax to polished aluminum components following the manufacturer's instructions. In humid atmospheres near salt water, apply the wax once a month. In other areas, apply wax every three months to maintain the appearance of the aluminum.

Wood & Veneer

This includes Herman Miller products finished with wood veneer or recut wood veneer, except the oiled Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman with Rosewood, Oiled Walnut, or Oiled Santos Palisander veneer unless specifically noted.

Normal Cleaning 
Dust regularly with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the directionof the wood grain.Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.

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 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.

Herman Miller veneers meet strict testing standards for resistance to wear, light, stains, water, and pressure. To reduce the risk of damage, take some precautions: Use coasters for glasses and mugs. If a glass top is added to the veneer surface, be sure it rests on felt pads. Don't place a potted plant on a veneer surface unless it's in a water-tight container or in a drip tray.Don't let vinyl binders stay on a surface for very long. Use protective pads under equipment with "rubber" cushioning feet. Some chemical compounds used in the feet on office equipment, such as printers and monitor stands, may leave permanent stains or marks.

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 simulate the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.

Other Damage
Wood is susceptible to bruising and scratching from heavy office equipment, so we encourage a protective surface is placed underneath. Objects should be lifted instead of dragged across a surface. Protective pads should be used under items with a rough bottom, like pottery. Denting, caused by extreme pen pressure when writing, can also damage veneer. Use desk pads or some other protection where a lot of paperwork is done. Sunlight can damage veneer as well, so veneer surfaces should not be in direct sunlight. To help a surface age evenly, users can periodically move items on their desks so that the entire surface is exposed to an even amount of light over time. In addition to light, extremely high or low humidity is a damaging environmental factor. Herman Miller suggests maintaining a relative humidity of 35-65 percent.


For normal cleaning, wash the laminate with a soft cloth and a solution of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a 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.


For Normal cleaning, wash with a soft cloth and a mixture of a mild detergent and warm water; wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth. Avoid the following types of cleaning agents: Lysol cleaners, abrasive cleaners (Soft Scrub, Comet, etc.), and acetone based cleaners. For spot cleaning, spray with Fantastik®, 409®, or Kleerdex Company's Kleer Off General Purpose Cleaner and wipe until dry with a clean, soft cloth. To clean metal marring, use a product call ZUD, which will remove the metal marring without changing the gloss or color of your Formcoat product.

Great desk - exudes quality design
Well built, classic style... lift motors are much quieter & stronger than other sit-stand desks I've used. Supremely happy with this desk. BTW - runs slightly smaller than specified. ( contract vs consumer measurements ) so IRL the 30" x 60" O/D is a true 28 7/8"d x 57 7/8"w.

Power gets in the way
We use these desks at my job and I'm constantly hitting my knees on the casing that covers the cables and power block. For some reason the case sticks out about 3-4 inches below the desk and is situated right where you knees would be. Real deal breaker for me as I have to sit at a distance from the desk that I find awkward in order to avoid hitting the cover or raise the desk to a level I find uncomfortable.

Just for reference I'm 5'11", 160lbs

I'd probably love the desk if they found a way to move the power block and cables either to the sides of the desk or to the very back (out of range of your legs)
May 16, 2017
It is especially helpful for changing position as the back begins to ache.

It's a wonderful table!!
I have physical issues that require a need for a mix of sitting and standing while I work. This table answered all of my needs and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one.

worth it
Expensive but worth every penny.

High quality, great design. I had high expectations for this desk, and all my expectations were met or exceeded. There are few things I have purchased that I have been so satisfied with after the purchase.

I would recommend you try it out in a showroom if at all possible.

I would also recommend that you do not consider assembling this on your own. It's a sophisticated piece of furniture, let the company arrange for assembling this for you.

Note, contact Herman Miller if you have any questions prior to ordering, their reps are pros and are very helpful.

Bit Pricey
Product is nice but it's overall appearance and design doesn't justify the price tag.
January 15, 2016

A shopper on May 30, 2015
Best Answer: The Flo Monitor Support works great with the Renew Sit to Stand Table! You will want to order the Flo Monitor Support with the Surface Clamp.

If you have any other questions, please reach out to the Herman Miller Online Store at hmstore@hermanmiller.com or 888.798.0202.


What are the materials used for this desk and what is the thickness of the top?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2015
Best Answer: The top surface is 1 1/4�-thick, 45-pound density particleboard core with a high-pressure laminate top with gator-ply paper backer bottom face, and side edges of rigid Thermoplastic.
Veneer work surfaces are 1 1/4� thick, 45-pound-density particle board core with a natural veneer top face, gator-ply paper backer bottom face for balanced construction, and color-matched natural veneer side edges.

Integrated Power outlets

Is there power outlets included in the Integrated Power option, is there an installation guide on this as well?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2015
Best Answer: The Integrated Power option does not included power outlets. The Integrated Cord Management option allows you to route the cords from all of your desktop tools into a cable trough below table, keeping them neatly out of sight even when the table is raised.

What is the lowest height on the renew desk?
Lok C on Jul 10, 2019
Best Answer: The Renew Sit to Stand Table ranges in height from 27 - 46 inches.
I'm 6'6" do you think the sit to stand table will be tall enough for me.
A shopper on May 9, 2015
Best Answer: I recommend standing up and then measuring the height from your elbow to the floor. Whether you're sitting or standing, your elbows should be at a 90 degree angle to your work surface to relieve wrist and shoulder strain. If your elbow is higher than 46 inches from the floor, you won't be able to achieve a 90 degree elbow bend with this table, as it will be too short for you. Good luck!
Is the Sit to Stand desk available as a corner desk?

It is helpful to be able to lean on the desk for a bit of support while standing. With a corner desk, I could do that.
A shopper on Jul 18, 2017
Best Answer: The Herman Miller Store only offers the rectangle and oval table options. Through Authorized Herman Miller Dealer, the table can be ordered in a corner configuration. Please use the link below to locate the nearest Authorized Herman Miller Dealer.

What is the load bearing capacity of the Renew Sit-to-Stand tables exclude the weight of the work surface itself? In other words, for a table with built-in table top, can I expect to put 250 lbs on top of it?
ron K on Aug 1, 2019
Best Answer: The legs of the table are able to support up to 250 pounds. The weight of the top would need to be subtracted from the overall total. For example, on a 30x60 table the top is approximately 45 pounds. 205 pounds could them be put on the desk.

With the Advanced Cord Management option can the cord be routed right & left?

The pictures I see show the power cord coming from the right base of the leg and I need the cord to come from the left.. is that doable?
A shopper on Dec 5, 2015
Best Answer: With the hidden power access on the Renew Sit-to-Stand Table, you are able to choose which leg (right or left) the cord is routed. The cord is installed in one of the legs at the time the table is built, and when the table is being assembled, you can choose which leg will be right or left.

How thick is the Thin-Edge with veneer table top?
A shopper on May 15, 2015
Best Answer: The thickness of the Renew Sit-to-Stand table surface is 1.25" thick (same for both laminate and veneer) and comes in two edge options:

The thin-edge slopes back 1.875" under the surface giving the surface a very thin/light aesthetic.

Eased-edge offers a sloped front edge (slopes 3") that reduces sharp edges for forearm support. (The slope may prohibit/limit some items from resting on the surface due to the sloped edge)

A shopper on Apr 3, 2015

Can I mount a keyboard tray to this?

I would really like to attach an ergonomic keyboard tray to the bottom of this. Is there enough clearance on the underside and is the material of the table able to support a mounted tray?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2015
Best Answer: A keyboard tray is not able to be attached to the bottom of the desk due to the cover or tray that is on the underside of the table.

If you have any other questions, please reach out to the Herman Miller Online Store at hmstore@hermanmiller.com or 888.798.0202.
