Is Your Office Chair Affecting Your Health?

If you are prone to suffering from catarrh and asthma type conditions your office seat may not be helping matters much.

Your office cleaners may do a very good job of keeping the place clean, even so I think you would be amazed at the amount of grime and filth that the average office chair is full of.

Take off a shoe and try beating the seat pad with the sole a few times, I bet there’s a fair chance that billows of dust will come flying out of the upholstery, unless it’s leather or vinyl of course.

So what’s the best course of action? Well to begin with give it a thorough clean with a powerful suction cleaner and don’t forget to beat the upholstery vigorously several times too. That dirt has become well embedded in the seat’s foams and doesn’t want to come out without a fight.

Finally, get hold of a good quality fabric cleaner and give the whole of the upholstery a real good clean, but take advice from your chair supplier first as to what is the best type of cleaner to use. Make sure you test it on an inconspicuous area initially, you don’t want to have a major disaster on your hands.

You’ll actually prolong the life of you seat’s fabric by cleaning it as it will remove abrasive particles the rub and cause undue wear.

Do this spring cleaning exercise at least once a year to keep your chair clean and healthy.
