1. Regular Cleaning

Office chairs require regular cleaning. A good weekly top to bottom vacuuming will help to get rid of accumulated dust. As per the chair shape, use the right vacuum extension to avoid any damage to the chair material and to reach every hidden corner. You also need to properly clean the wheels of the chair. You can also wipe clean the chair with a soft cloth but make sure to avoid using any harsh cleaner.

3. Check The Gas Lift Cylinder

Gas Lift Cylinder provides a pneumatic lift to adjust the seat height. If after tightening the screws and bolts, your chair still doesn’t stay in place, it can be an indication that the Gas Lift Cylinder is not working. This will require a change in the gas cylinder, which the chair manufacturer can provide and easily replaced by self.

4. Avoid Direct Sun Light

Direct Sunlight can harm your chair fabric. Leather and Vegan Leather generally degrade if exposed to sunlight for long hours. It is important that the Chairs are placed in a shaded area of the room.
