Do you have a swivel chair in your home? If so, how often do you clean it? You should be cleaning it regularly to avoid the spread of bacteria. This blog post is about how to disinfect a swivel chair to keep your family healthy and safe!
Steps To Disinfect A Swivel Chair
Step One: Clear the seat and back of any throw pillows or cushions that might be on them. Remove fabric from under the cushion too. Vacuum thoroughly to remove any dust or dirt from the fabric.
Examine the upholstery for stains, and use a stain remover if necessary to remove them. Spot clean any other areas with stubborn stains as well.
Rinse off any soapy residue left behind with water only to avoid leaving behind soap scum that can collect more bacteria. Make sure you dry off all of the damp spots before proceeding!
Step Two: Apply a general household cleaner onto your chair using an old towel or rag. Use enough pressure on each section until it is thoroughly cleaned – this will help prevent certain types of bacteria from forming later.
If needed, also use dish soap where there are persistent food spills or sticky substances like syrup and honey. You should note that some products may require you to wait at least two hours before proceeding with the next step.
Allow the chair or stool to air dry for five minutes after cleaning with soap and water.
Wipe off any sticky spots using a damp cloth (again, not submerging your furniture in soapy water). Then let it sit out until it is almost completely dry. If this does not work, please see below on how to use hydrogen peroxide as an alternative disinfectant solution.).
It’s important to note that many household cleaners will need time for their active ingredients like bleach and ammonia to “cure” – which means that after you use them, the smell will dissipate and become less noticeable.
Allow enough time for your furniture to air dry before using it again.
How do you Deep Clean a Fabric Chair?
If your fabric chair is stained, the first thing you should do to clean it is using a brush and vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment:
Step 1. Soak all of the removable parts in water that has been mixed with one cup white vinegar or two cups hydrogen peroxide (alternative disinfectant). Allow them to soak for at least 15 minutes before removing.
Step 2. Remove the attachments from any seat cushions if they are not already detached. Vacuum underneath them thoroughly.
Step 3. Rinse out these pieces as well as the rest of the furniture using fresh water and then let dry completely before reassembling them into place.
You can also use a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery attachment, but it is best when you have some serious scrubbing to do to make sure your brush bristles really get down deep between swivels and under seats where bacteria could grow.
What is the Best Product to Clean Upholstery?
A cheaper, but also highly effective option for cleaning your furniture, especially when you are dealing with grease and oils stains that dry quickly or don’t come out in a normal washing cycle like blood.
Dawn dish soap: Dawn’s powerful formula can remove even dried food from chairs as well as dishes. Apply some of this liquid directly onto the stain before scrubbing it with a rag until it disappears. Another great trick is using baby wipes since they’re made for sensitive skin (and most people have them stocked).
Apply just one wipe per area and rub gently in circles over any oily spots or greasy areas; then blot off any excess moisture with a paper towel. For really tough stains, use a bit of dish soap and hot water to loosen it up first before wiping with the baby wipes.
Furniture polish: this is also an effective way to disinfect your chair because not only does furniture polish offer protection against spills, but it’s antibacterial as well.
To make sure you have all that grease or oil removed from the surface once and for all, put on some gloves (to avoid touching anything) then pour a liberal amount onto a damp rag; scrub over any greasy spots until they’re gone.
If there are visible marks left behind after cleaning- apply more furniture polish using another clean cloth and work into the mark in circular motions while applying pressure so that it blends back into the rest of the furniture.
For any stubborn spots, you can also use a citrus-based cleaner such as lemon, orange or lime – add to some water in a spray bottle and apply generously with an old rag before wiping away.
When cleaning wood surfaces, make sure that you don’t have any moisture left on them after mopping; otherwise, it won’t dry properly and may end up looking weathered over time.
