Mesh office chairs provide a comfortable seat, while the mesh upholstery acts as a filter, continuously encouraging the flow of fresh air instead of blocking it like other office chair fabrics, providing cool comfort to all users. Every office chair, no matter the fabric, will need a cleaning every once in a while. When it comes to cleaning your mesh chair, we recommend checking out our three steps to get it nice and clean again!
Steps to Clean Your Mesh Chair
So, what's the best way to clean a mesh chair? Below are the steps we recommend taking, in order of execution:
- 1.) Vacuum your seat and chair back
- 2.) Dab any spots on your chair using warm water with a mild soap and a washcloth until the spot is gone
- 3.) If step 2 doesn't work, try using a mild spot removing solution
When you begin cleaning your chair, you'll want to first vacuum any crumbs that may have fallen inside the mesh fabric and clean it out with a small handheld vacuum cleaner. Mesh Chairs have been known to collect crumbs and dust inside the fabric...as you might have been able to tell! In this case, use the hose attachment on your vacuum to remove as much as you can.
Next, you'll want to clean any spots or stains on your chair. First start with a mix of warm water and mild soap and clean with a washcloth. If you have tougher stains that require something more potent, try using a stain remover and gently cleaning with a washcloth. Avoid using anything that may cause your mesh fabric to fray or tear.
Lastly, after you have cleaned your chair, allow it to dry before sitting on it again. Depending on how many stains you had to remove, this may require you to let it sit for a few hours, so plan accordingly! If you still can't get your mesh chair cleaned to your liking, we have a large selection of perfect replacements.
