How To Care For Your Office Chair

Well maintained office chairs keep employees comfortable and create a good impression on clients and visitors. It is also important to keep your chairs clean in order to keep the spread of germs and allergy causing dust and pollen particles to a minimum.

You can choose to keep your chairs maintained regularly in house which will reduce the required frequency for professional cleans. The care for each type of chair differs and you should always check the information that comes with the chair for cleaning instructions. You can also call your supplier who should be able to advise you on the correct type of maintenance and care for your chair.

  • Upholstered chairs should be regularly hoovered on a low setting with a brush or upholstery attachment. Any spills or stains should be dealt with as soon as possible. Remember to follow the chair’s care instructions and make sure to test any cleaning products in a small, inconspicuous area before treating the stain.
  • Leather or vinyl chairs should be wiped down with a damp cloth often. Make sure the cloth you use in non-abrasive to avoid scratching the material
  • Mesh office chairs should be lightly hoovered weekly to avoid the accumulation of dust and other debris in the open weave. A wipe down with a damp cloth can also help to remove any sticky residue that can build up and block air flow.
  • Plastic chairs in waiting areas, canteens and cafes can be cared for with warm water and a mild detergent mix to keep them hygienic. Avoid using abrasive brushes or alkaline-based cleaning products.

All chairs should receive regular, professional cleaning and care to improve cleanliness and longevity of the product. The frequency of this service will depend on your in house maintenance routine and the type of environment the chairs are in.
