Clean the frame and tabletop regularly. For the laminated tabletop, never clean it using detergents such as ammonia, water, and traditional soap.

Also, avoid exposing the laminated tabletop to water and direct sunlight to lower the risk of fading. 
Always use a coaster when drinking hot coffee or tea on your desk. Also, if you're eating, place a heavy cotton cloth under your plate as the heat can destroy the desktop. 
Never sit on your height adjustable gaming desk 
Make sure you never spill liquids on the motor 
Never interrupt the desk while in motion 
Always wipe off spills immediately they occur
