An ergonomic chair allows us to work for longer hours without stressing our back and neck. We all understand the value of a seamless office chair. Having any functional issues in the Chair can cause discomfort and hence less productivity. In order to avoid these functional issues, we need to keep our Chairs well maintained. Here are a few tips to keep your office chair clean and maintained.
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.
2. Tighten Screws and Bolts
It is important that once every 6 months, the chair is properly inspected. All the mechanical parts should be well checked for any wear and tear. It is also important that all the screws and bolts are tightened so the chair functions flawlessly.
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.
5. Time for a New Chair
Office Chairs can last for 7-10 years depending on the Chair and how it is maintained. If the chair has damages beyond repair, it is suggested that the Chair should be replaced with a new chair. As manufacturers work on upgrading their technology and designs every year, opting for a new chair will ensure the best comfort and latest design.
