It’s the middle of summer and you’re desperately trying to get your work done, but the distractions are endless! Your colleague is blasting the air conditioning and you can hear every word they’re saying, the phone is ringing off the hook, and worst of all – your chair wheels are constantly getting hair stuck in them. How can you possibly focus on all of this going on? In this blog post, we will teach you how to get the hair out of office chair wheels quickly and easily!
How To Get Hair Out Of Office Chair Wheels
Hair can be a pain to clean out of office chair wheels, but it’s important to do so to keep the wheels rolling smoothly. Here are different ways to get the hair out of office chair wheels:
Use A Lint Roller.
This is probably the quickest and easiest way to remove hair from chair wheels. Just roll the lint roller over the hair-covered area and the hair will adhere to the sticky surface.
Another quick and easy way to remove hair from chair wheels is to use tape. Simply wrap some tape around your fingers and press it against the hairy area on the wheel. The hair will stick to the tape and you can then peel it off.
Use A Vacuum Cleaner.
If you have a small, handheld vacuum cleaner, you can use it to suction the hair off of the chair wheels. Just put the vacuum cleaner over the hairy area and turn it on. The hair will be sucked into the vacuum and then you can dispose of it.
Use A Lint Brush.
A lint brush is a tool that has bristles or other materials that can remove hair from surfaces. You can find lint brushes at most hardware stores or online. Just brush the hairy area of the chair wheel with the lint brush and the hair will come off.
Clippers And Tweezers
In some situations, the hair is usually bound together in such a way that tape alone cannot untangle it. You may have to use clippers or tweezers to remove the hair. First, try to clip as much of the hair as possible with the clippers. Then, use the tweezers to pull out any remaining hair.
Bring the heat
If the hair is really stuck on and not coming off with any of the above methods, you can try using a hairdryer. Set the hairdryer to the hottest setting and hold it close to the hairy area for a few seconds. The heat will loosen the hair and you should be able to remove it easily.
Remove Hair with a Flame Torch
If you don’t want to take apart the casters, a flame torch may be useful. Obtain a medium-sized flame torch and immolate the hairs with it. Always remember that small bursts of flame are sufficient until the hair begins to smoke. Otherwise, you could damage the plastic. Try to move the flame as little as possible, so that only the hairs are burned and not the chair’s plastic. After a few seconds, remove the torch and use a brush to sweep away any ashes. Finally, use a vacuum cleaner to remove any small pieces of hair that may remain.
Use Your Fingers.
If you don’t have any of the above tools, you can always just use your fingers to remove the hair from chair wheels. Just grab a small section of hair and then pull it off of the wheel. Repeat this process until all of the hair is gone.
Once you’ve got all the hair off of the wheels, you can then vacuum or sweep up any loose hair that might be on the floor. Then, you can enjoy your clean office chair!
The Types of Office Chair Wheels
One important factor to consider when shopping for office chairs is the type of wheels they have. There are two main types: hard casters and soft casters. Hard casters are made of harder materials, such as metal or plastic, and they’re designed for use on carpeted floors. Soft casters are made of softer materials, such as rubber, and they’re designed for use on hard floors, like tile or wood. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. Here’s a closer look at each type:
Harder materials make them more durable and less likely to break; can roll over small obstacles; easier to keep clean.
They can damage floors; can be more difficult to roll; can be noisy.
Softer materials make them more gentle on floors; quieter than hard casters; can provide a smoother ride.
They are not as durable as hard casters; can get stuck on small obstacles; require more frequent cleaning
When choosing office chair wheels, it’s important to consider the type of flooring you have and how much rolling you’ll be doing. If you have hard floors and won’t be moving around much, soft casters might be the best option. If you have carpeted floors and need to roll around a lot, hard casters might be the better choice. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide which type is right for your needs.
How to Maintain and Care for Chair Wheels
Once you have cleaned the office chair wheels and they are free from any dirt or debris, you can prevent them from getting entangled in the future by regularly cleaning them and keeping them free from buildup.
- You can also use a chair mat to protect your floors and keep the wheels clean.
- Regularly cleaning the wheels will remove any dirt or debris that could build up and cause entanglement.
- It is critical to properly lubricate the wheels of your chair in order for it to roll well.
- For cleanliness, use gel-based grease in the casters.
- If you have dry lubricant on hand, apply it to the casters of any equipment that will be used in an unclean or dusty environment.
- If the chair has plastic wheels, you can use furniture polish to clean and protect them. Make sure to test the polish on an inconspicuous area of the chair first to ensure that it does not damage the plastic.
- For metal wheels, use a metal polish to clean and protect the chair. Again, test the polish on an inconspicuous area first. You can also prevent entanglement by regularly inspecting the wheels and casters for any damage or wear. Replace any damaged or worn wheels immediately to prevent entanglement.
In A Nutshell
By following these simple tips, you can keep your office chair wheels clean and free from entanglement. Regular cleaning and maintenance will extend the life of your chair and prevent any unnecessary damage to your floors. Choose the right type of wheel for your needs, and be sure to properly lubricate the wheels to keep them rolling smoothly. With a little bit of care, your office chair will be rolling smoothly for years to come.
