Commercial businesses often focus on cleaning the floors, workspaces, and other surfaces, but often neglect the chairs. When it comes to cleaning the chairs, few businesses execute proper protocols to efficiently clean the chairs. With this in mind, we at Baker Sandoval Cleaning would like share how to clean your business’s chairs.
Chair Cleaning 101
You will need to arm yourself with some basic but trusty tools and products to be effective with your chair cleaning. A vacuum with a brush attachment, cleaning foam, dish soap, water-based cleaner, and dry cloths.
Use a dry cloth immediately to try to absorb as much of the liquid as you can before it sinks into the fabric if you do happen to spill something on your fabric office chair. Be sure to blot with a dry cloth to draw the liquid out.
Cleaning Fabric Upholstery Office Chairs
Begin by vacuuming the whole chair with a brush attachment to get rid of any loose debris for both regular cleaning and deep stain removal. If there are any limitations to the kind of cleaner you can use, consult the manufacturer’s instructions on the chair to see. With some upholstery, you are unable to use water-based cleaners for instance. Available in both in liquid and powder forms, use a dry cleaner. Without apply directly to the chair, put a small amount of the cleaner on a dry cloth. To lift any stains out, firmly but gently rub the spot. Use a damp, not wet, cloth to remove any residue so that you don’t damage the upholstery. You have a few options if you are able to use water-based cleaners. Use a foam cleaner to apply to the whole chair and let sit for a few minutes. Scour out any stains with a brush. Vacuum it again with the brush attachment to remove residue after the surface is dry. Combine dish soap and water as another water-based cleaning method. Dab the stain with the soap and water mixture and wipe it out with a few drops of soap and water. With a damp cloth, rinse out any extra soap.
Cleaning Plastic Chair
Use a mixture of dish soap and water as the very best way to clean a plastic office chair. Try mixing a few drops more of soap into the cleaning mixture if the chair is very dirty. With a damp cloth until clean, gently wipe out stains and rinse.
Mesh Office Chair Cleaning
For mesh, the best cleaner is dish soap. Begin by vacuuming with the brush attachment to get rid of any loose debris like with the fabric office chair. Dip a clean cloth in after mixing together a small amount of dish soap and warm water. Wipe out stains and let air dry when you are done.
Leather Office Chair Cleaning
Cleaning is generally a little bit easier with a leather office chair. Though stains can usually be lifted reasonably well, as long as you use the right cleaner, leather does tend to absorb oils from your body more readily. To remove stains from leather office chairs, cleaning foam is best. Avoid using cleaners meant for leather car seats can be too harsh. Gently scrub the stain, apply a small amount of cleaning foam to a dry cloth. To the foam, add a small amount of warm water. Wipe the leather office chair clean with a clean cloth. Add a leather protectant for extra protection for your leather office chair.
