How To Care For Your Office Chair

A well maintained set of office chairs keeps employees comfortable and creates a good impression on your clients and visitors. It is also important to keep your chairs clean for hygiene purposes, keeping the spread of germs and allergy causing dust and pollen particles to a minimum.

You have the choice to keep your chairs regularly maintained 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 instructions that come 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 and any spills or stains should be dealt with as soon as possible. Remember to follow care instructions and make sure to test any cleaning products in a small, inconspicuous area before attending to 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 or 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 a regular professional cleaning and care service 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 chairs are in.
