Hello there, Secretlab chair users! Are you upset that your chair seems to attract dirt like a magnet? Trust us, you’re not alone. Many are in the same boat, grappling with the question of how to keep their luxurious chairs clean. If you’re suffering from this problem, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we will guide you through a seven-step process to ensure your chair remains as pristine as the day you bought it.
Step 1: Check the Material
First things first, you need to identify the type of material your Secretlab chair is made of. Secretlab uses a variety of upholstery, such as PVC leather, PU leather, mesh, and fabric. Each requires different cleaning methods. To ensure you don’t inadvertently damage your chair, check its manual or product description for information on its material. Knowing the material will guide you through the subsequent steps.
Step 2: Gather the Items
Depending on your chair’s material, you’ll need different cleaning items. For PVC and PU leather chairs, you’ll need a bucket of warm water and a clean towel you don’t mind getting dirty. You may also want sponges and brushes for a more in-depth clean. If your chair is mesh or fabric, it’s likely to accumulate dust. You’ll need a vacuum cleaner or blower machine to clean it properly.
Tip: Wipe your chair at least once a week to avoid particles from embedding too deep into the fibers, necessitating a deep clean.
Step 3: Cleaning the Upholstery
Before beginning the cleaning, take a moment to check the care tag on the back of your chair. If it shows an ‘S’ mark, use a solvent-based cleaner. If it shows a ‘W’, go for a water-based cleaner. If it shows ‘SW’, either will work. Most Secretlab chairs carry a ‘W’ mark, meaning a simple mixture of warm water and mild dish soap will do the trick. For leather upholstery, gently blot the cleaning solution using a soft sponge. For mesh, blot gently and avoid rubbing. If you have fabric upholstery, scrub dirty spots directly with a brush.
Step 4: Removing Stains
For persistent stains, the standard cleaning may not suffice. In this case, try spot cleaning. Apply a few drops of rubbing alcohol to a cotton ball and test it on an inconspicuous area to ensure it won’t damage the material. If it’s safe, you can then proceed to blot or gently rub the stains.
Note: Be very gentle on mesh upholstery as it can be easily damaged.
Step 5: Dry Cleaning
Once you’ve dealt with dust and stains, it’s time to dry clean the armrests, frame, and base. This part is pretty straightforward. All you need is a soft sponge or cloth, warm water mixed with mild detergent, and a paper towel or dry cloth to wipe down the wet areas.
Step 6: Clean the Casters
Often overlooked, the casters accumulate an alarming amount of hair and debris. To clean them, turn your chair upside down for easier access. Remove any visible debris and give them a good wipe down.
Step 7: Re-Tighten Screws
Your chair should now look brand new. But wait, there’s one last step! Take a moment to tighten any loose screws for safety reasons. If your chair has been squeaking, now is an excellent time to apply some WD-40 or another lubricant to make it as good as new.
Congratulations! Your Secretlab chair should now be feeling fresh, looking brand new, and ready for those long gaming or working sessions. The only thing left to do is to sit down and enjoy the comfort of your freshly cleaned throne.
