Static is a common problem with non-metallic surfaces in dry areas. It leads to mild, though unpleasant electric shocks as well as possible damage to printed circuit boards and interference with computer terminals. Common sources are carpets, plastic surface desks and painted surfaces.
Lawrence Sofa and Upholstery Cleaning can treat any offending surface and thus help you keep static electricity under control. This service is highly recommended in winter and spring for areas with high traffic around computer workstations and new carpets with nylon fibre.
