cleaning a fabric chair-A stain on the fabric covering of your Mobitec chair? Do not panic!
Follow our instructions for cleaning your fabric chair depending on the type of stain. In most cases, all it takes is a little elbow grease and standard cleaning products to get your chair back in shape.
The right steps to clean a fabric chair
• If the cover of your chair is removable , remove it and check the washing and maintenance instructions given on the label of the cover. In some cases, you can simply machine wash it.
• First of all, try to determine the origin and the nature of the stain in order to be able to apply the appropriate treatment. Then refer to the list below to find the appropriate treatment.
Dust the seat with the soft brush of the vacuum cleaner to work on a clean surface
• Apply the stain remover to a clean cloth and never directly to the fabric.
• Test the stain remover on a less visible area of your flesh beforehand.
• Always rinse the treated area after applying the stain remover.
• After applying the stain remover and rinsing it off, always clean the entire surface of the chair’s fabric upholstery. Local treatment may indeed leave a halo.
