How To Clean Office Chairs

First: First of all, it is necessary to understand the material of the office chair. However, the legs of general office chairs are mainly made of solid wood and iron. The stool surface is made of leather or fabric. The cleaning methods of chairs of different materials are different when cleaning.

Second: If it is a leather art office chair, it is best to try it in an inconspicuous position when using the leather art cleaner to see if it fades. If there is fading, dilute it with water; if it is particularly dirty, use lukewarm water and let it dry naturally.

Third: The solid wood office chair legs can be wiped directly with a dry cloth, and then some detergent, do not wipe with a cloth that is too damp, and then exposed to dry, which will accelerate the internal decay of the solid wood.

Fourth: The general cleaning method of fabric stool is to spray detergent and wipe gently. If it is particularly dirty, it can be cleaned with warm water and detergent. Don’t just rub it with the brush, in that case the fabric will look very old easily.

Some chairs have a tag (usually on the underside of the seat) with a cleaning code. That upholstery cleaning code—W, S, S/W, or X—suggests the best types of cleaners for use on the chair (water-based, for example, or dry-cleaning solvents only). Follow this guide to determine which cleaners to use based on the cleaning codes.

Chairs that are leather, vinyl, plastic mesh, or polyurethane-covered can be regularly maintained using these supplies:

A vacuum cleaner: A handheld vacuum or cordless stick vacuum can make vacuuming a chair as hassle-free as possible. Some vacuums also have attachments specifically designed to remove dust and allergens from upholstery.

Dishwashing soap: We recommend Seventh Generation Dish Liquid, but any clear dish soap or mild soap would work.

A spray bottle or a small bowl.

Two or three clean, soft cloths: Microfiber cloths, an old cotton T-shirt, or any rags that don’t leave behind lint will do.

A duster or can of compressed air (optional): A duster, like the Swiffer Duster, can reach into tight places that your vacuum might not be able to. Alternatively, you can use a can of compressed air to blow out any dirt particles.

For deep cleaning or stain removal:

Rubbing alcohol, vinegar, or laundry detergent: Stubborn fabric stains require a bit more help. The type of treatment will depend on the type of stain.

A portable carpet and upholstery cleaner: For deep cleaning or to tackle frequent messes on your chair and other upholstered furniture and carpets, consider investing in an upholstery cleaner, like our favorite, the Bissell SpotClean Pro.
