Whether you are studying or working, your chair and desk is probably the place you spend the most time at. Hence, it is vital that you ensure that proper ergonomic postures and habits are observed to prevent unnecessary pains and aches. And that comes with investing in an ergonomic chair, and in Singapore’s hot and humid weather, a mesh ergonomic chair.
Additionally, spending long hours in your chair means that the chances of accidental spills of food and drinks are high. Apart from this, your chair is a hotspot for accumulated stains and dust that might affect its optimal efficiency.
Hence, maintaining your chair from time to time ensures that it serves you optimally. And in this case, it means cleaning it every now and then. In this article, we will show you five steps to clean and maintain your mesh ergonomic chair.
Things you will need
Before you start cleaning your mesh ergonomic chair, you will need to ensure that you have these items:
- Warm water
- Cleaning rags
- A vacuum cleaner with brush attachments
- Stain remover
- Microfibre cloths
- Washing bowl
Cleaning your mesh ergonomic chair
Step #1: Vacuum it
The first step is to use the vacuum cleaner to remove as much debris and dust as possible. While the mesh material increases comfort, keeping you cool, the tiny holes tend to accumulate debris, dust, and crumbs easily.
All you need to do is to attach the brush attachment to the vacuum and run it through the mesh and every crevice of the chair lightly.
Step #2: Wipe it with a rag
If your chair has removable components, dismantle them so that you can clean it thoroughly. If not, wiping the chair with a piece of clean rag and warm water will help to remove any of the tougher stains and debris that are stuck to the chair.
Step #3: Get rid of hard-to-remove stains
There are certain stains, such as coffee or ink stains, that can be a little tough to remove. For such stains, you can conduct spot cleaning, which involves using a stain remover and microfibre cloth.
However, fair warning. Some stain removers might damage or discolour mesh chairs. Hence, it is vital to either test it on a small area of the mesh before cleaning or check with the manufacturer’s manual. Nevertheless, should you have no stubborn stains, there is no need for this step.
Step #4: Clean the main part of your chair
After cleaning the mesh areas and removing as many stains as possible, you will want to clean the main area of the chair, where you come into contact the most, with disinfectant. Lightly spray some disinfectant on the areas and wipe it down gently with a clean cloth.
Step #5: Clean the framework and accessories
After the main area of your chair has been cleaned and disinfected, it is time to clean the framework and any accessories your chair might come with. In this case, use warm water or disinfectant and wipe the base, supporting frame, wheels, armrests, headrest, and seat pads.
Additional tips to optimise the maintenance of your mesh ergonomic chair
In general, you wanted to ensure that your chair continues to look clean and good after spending effort to clean it. It is possible to ensure the cleanliness of your chair for a prolonged period by following some of these additional tips.
- Refrain from eating at the desk: Eating at your table increases the chance of food and drink spillage.
- Ensure regular cleaning: You do not have to repeat all five steps in each round of cleaning. All you can do is vacuum and wipe the key areas down with warm water everyday couple of days or once a week.
