Spot and Stain Removal Guide

chair upholstery cleaning guide

There is a huge array of fabric and vinyl upholstery options available for office chairs and attempting to list them all as well as how best to clean them, is an impossible task. Stains do happen and removing them from the upholstery can be difficult.

As a general rule of thumb, you should treat stains immediately before they become permanent. Use white towels, roller towel or an absorbent cloth to ‘blott’ the spillage. Keep blotting and changing the absorbent material until no more of the spillage or coloured matter is being removed.

a) Spot and Stain Removal Guide for VINYL upholstery

Vinyl upholstery should always be cleaned with clean water using a damp cloth to wipe away stains or spills. Solvent-based cleaning materials should never be used as they may damage the vinyl causing it to crack and peel.

b) Spot and Stain Removal Guide for FABRIC upholstery

Always follow the manufacturers’ cleaning instructions. If none are not available, then use our general guide to cleaning everyday stains on fabrics. Pre-test all solutions on an inconspicuous area. When using liquid cleaners work from the outer ring of the stain toward the centre.  Always rinse with clean water and blot dry to finish as detergent residue tends to attract soiling.  If in any doubt, contact a cleaning specialist. Karo takes no responsibility for damage caused by use of these suggestions. Download our guide on how to deal with different stains!
