Gather Your Supplies

In order to clean a fabric swivel chair, you will need to gather a few supplies beforehand. These supplies include:

  • Mild detergent or upholstery cleaner
  • Warm water
  • Soft-bristle brush or sponge
  • Clean, lint-free cloths
  • Vacuum cleaner with brush attachment
  • Optional: Fabric protectant spray

Once you have gathered these supplies, you are ready to begin the cleaning process.

Vacuum the Chair Thoroughly

Before starting the cleaning process, it is important to remove any loose dirt, dust, or debris from the fabric swivel chair. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to gently vacuum the chair’s surface. Pay special attention to the crevices and seams where dirt may accumulate.

Spot Clean Stains

If your fabric swivel chair has any visible stains, it is important to address them before proceeding with the overall cleaning. Mix a small amount of mild detergent or upholstery cleaner with warm water according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Dip a soft-bristle brush or sponge into the cleaning solution and gently blot the stain. Avoid rubbing the stain, as this can cause it to spread or damage the fabric. Once the stain has been treated, gently blot the area with a clean, damp cloth to remove any residual cleaner.

Clean the Chair’s Surface

After spot cleaning any stains, it is time to clean the entire surface of the fabric swivel chair. Fill a bucket with warm water and add a small amount of mild detergent or upholstery cleaner. Dip a soft-bristle brush or sponge into the cleaning solution and gently scrub the chair’s surface in a circular motion. Again, avoid rubbing too vigorously, as this can damage the fabric. Use a clean, lint-free cloth to wipe away any excess cleaner and moisture. Repeat this process as needed until the entire chair is clean.

Allow the Chair to Dry and Apply Fabric Protectant (Optional)

Once the fabric swivel chair has been cleaned, it is important to allow it to fully dry before using or sitting on it. Place the chair in a well-ventilated area and allow it to air dry completely. Depending on the fabric and humidity levels, this may take several hours. Once the chair is dry, you can optionally apply a fabric protectant spray to help repel future stains and spills. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper application.

Following these steps will help you clean your fabric swivel chair effectively and remove any stains or dirt that may have accumulated over time. Remember to always check the manufacturer’s instructions for specific cleaning recommendations for your chair, as different fabrics may require different care methods.
