Maintaining ErgoChair

Maintaining your ErgoChair is just as important as choosing a suitable one. It is an essential and often-be-neglected task but will keep your chair in good condition and serving you well for an extended period of time.

Here are three tips we suggest to take care of your Autonomous ErgoChair.

1. Clean the backrest and seat

Every few weeks, take some time to clean the parts that get in contact with you almost daily.

  • To clean the backrest, vacuum any dirt off the chair first, then clean backrest with warm soap and water.
  • As for the seat, vacuum any dirt off the chair, then use Lysol or a deodorizing spray on the fabric of the seat and give it a good scrubbing with a moist sponge. Let them air-dry.

Note: Consider testing the soap in a discreet area that’s difficult to see. Doing so allows you to see how the product affects your office chair.

2. Lubricate the connection joints of gas lift and mechanism

Prolong use of the chair and high level of humidity in your location may cause the chair oil to dry out. There is a high chance the chair will make a squeaking noise to complain when you sit on it if this happens.

To avoid it, disassemble the chair periodically, apply machine oil like 3-IN-ONE oil to the connection joints of the gas lift and mechanism, then reassemble the chair.

If 3-IN-ONE oil is not available, machine oil that contains the following ingredients will work:

  • White Oil 80-90%
  • Stearic Acid 10-20%
  • Antioxidant 1-5%

3. Clean and lubricate casters

Every 6 months, flip your office chair upside down and pull out any lint, hair or debris from inside the castors. Then, apply or spray a small amount of lubricant like WD-40 into each castor and they are good to roll.
