Steps to clean the foam office chair

Whether it's a new or used office chair, there are several ways to clean it. The steps below highlight how to ensure that your foam office chair is clean.  

Step 1: Remove the foam from the chair. 

Most office chairs have a removable foam seat. Unzip the chair and remove the foam. You can skip this step if your chair does not have a removable seat.

Step 2: Vacuum the chair.

Use the brush attachment on your vacuum to clean the chair's surface. Pay special attention to any areas that seem to be extra dirty.

Step 3: Mix a mild detergent with water.

Create a mixture of mild detergent and water. You don't need to use a lot of detergent, just enough to create suds.

Step 4: Clean the chair with a cloth.

Dip the cloth into the soapy water and use it to wipe down the chair. Be sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.

Step 5: Rinse the chair with clean water.

Use a clean cloth to remove any soap residue from the chair.

Step 6: Allow the chair to dry.

Once you've removed all the soap and water, allow the chair to air dry completely. Do not put the foam back on the chair until it is completely dry.

Tips and advice to keep your office chair foam clean.

  1. Vacuum the chair regularly. This will help remove any dirt and dust that have built up on the chair's surface.
  2. Spot clean as needed. If you see a stain on the chair, don't wait to clean it. The longer you let it sit, the harder it will be to remove.
  3. You can buy a cover for your chair that will help to protect it from dirt and stains. This is a good option if you have a light-colored chair.
  4. Don't eat or drink in your chair. This will help to keep it clean and free of stains.
  5. Sunlight can help to keep your chair clean. Leave the chair in a sunny spot for an hour or so every week; this will help kill any bacteria lurking on the surface.
  6. Don't forget to clean under the chair. The area under your chair can get just as dirty as the rest of it, so be sure to vacuum or wipe it down on a regular basis.

Cleaning your foam office chair is easy and only takes a few simple steps. By following these tips, you can keep your chair looking and smelling like new. Don't let a dirty chair ruin your office space - give it a good cleaning today!
