Rolling office chairs

Rolling office chairs are great for movements around a work station - no need to stretch or stand, just roll over to the side. They add comfort to work environments and very heavy chairs do not have to be lifted or occupy a permanent position in the office- they are simply rolled over to any desired spot. For good health and posture, asthmatic patients should make sure chairs are cleaned seats regularly.

Which rolling chairs are the best?

A great rolling chair is one that is cushioned in a way that relaxes all corners of the back and is comfortable for any individual's height. It relieves stress, is adjustable and durable. These are the qualities of an ergonomic chair. Seat heights and neck rests can be adjusted to fit the users need and some come with a swivel arm rest that allows a change in position. Although many chairs are regarded as ergonomic, finding the right type to buy depends on the customer's need and job type.

Some jobs do not require much comfort and that is where the knowledge to choose the right material comes in. In some offices, rolling chairs with plastic seats and no padding are preferred by employees. Some people prefer comfortable seats with less padding and lightweight chairs like the mesh upholstery or soft leather and for others who sit for long hours in front of a computer, it is better to buy seats that allow changes in position (back rests can be bent for relaxation). Leather executive chairs are attractive and stylish, they bring a grandiose aura to an office but if the price is too high for the budget, vinyl seats can be purchased instead.

Also take note of your working space before procuring rolling chairs. If it is small, you might want to reduce the quantity of chairs and replace some with the stationary type. There are computer chairs, executive chairs and desk chairs. Executive chairs are larger in size than all other chairs and are built with thick padding and upholstered to support heavy weight from 300-400ibs - they are made for the boss.

How to clean rolling office chairs

1. Turn rolling office chairs upside down and balance them on a clean sheet or office mat. Place a clean cloth, lubricant and a toothpick or blunt knife by the side.

2. Gently pick out the dirt from the wheel cap and avoid leaving scratches on the side. Scrape off thick mounds of dirt from the sides and if it becomes too difficult, you can take off the wheels and remove stuck objects. Try not to apply too much force that will damage and hinder the movement of the wheels.

3. Wipe out the inner crannies of the wheel with a soft cloth or dry wipe until it's clean. Also clean the outer parts of the wheel. Blow dry or sun dry wheels if there is any moisture in it to prevent rusting.

4. Apply lubricant to the inner part of the wheels and try not to put excess so that dirt won't get trapped in again. Use non-grease lubricants for metallic wheels and silicone lubricants for plastic wheels.

5. Fix the wheels back on the chair and check if it is balanced, if not unscrew it and screw it back tightly.
