Migrating without affecting orders, users, comments, etc

Often times I’ll create a staging copy of my website on a subdomain and make some changes over the course of a few weeks and even months if I’m doing a big design change. My question is when I’m finished and I want to push the changes live. How do I do that without affecting order IDs and other ID conflicts?

I did some research and most of the answers involve clearing order IDs and letting wordpress create new ones but that changes order IDs which I often refer back to for my clients.
