When Is The Time Right For Office Chair Repair?

When is the time right for office chair repair? The answer may seem obvious – whenever they break down. That certainly is a ‘time’ for repair – but is right to allow a chair to fall apart before it needs to be taken out of action and restored?

Seating that is on the way to breaking down will already offer an uncomfortable experience for the user – when it does eventually break down, it will cause frustration, anger, perhaps even physical injury. Not in any way conducive to keeping a happy and dedicated workforce. Wouldn’t it be better to know when the qualities of a furniture item are starting to disintegrate, and repairing them before they do?

Here, we’re going to look at a few things you need to look at when judging whether the time is right for your office chairs to be repaired.

Knowing When The Time Is Right For Office Chair Repair

  • Usage. The first questions that you need to ask, when evaluating your seating, are; how old is the chair, how long is it used for and which people sit in it? They may sound simple questions, but understanding how the chair is used every day will give you a good insight into its condition. For example – telesales staff will have to sit in the same chairs for 6+ hours a day, whereas a chair that is used in a hotdesking environment will be used less, but by more people, so it will be constantly adjusted and reshaped.
  • Adjustability. The need for seating to allow for good posture is reason alone why office chair repair is needed – as employees have to sit down for long periods of time, bad posture will lead to physical health issues, such as back strain, leg problems, carpal tunnel syndrome and spinal injuries. This is why a good level of adjustability is important in office chairs, so when testing each item, you should check for good levels/qualities of recline, seat depth, lumbar support, chair height and armrests.
  • Mobility. An often-overlooked aspect of office chairs, mobility further helps employees to find their ideal position, simply and easily. When testing the mobility of your chairs, aside from noting how well it moves when you’re sat on it, look at the condition of the wheels and their supporting structure – are they worn badly or chipped?

The chairs are fantastic Thanks so much. The 2 chairs you reupholstered look fantastic. I thought they were two new ones they look so good. In fact our receptionist liked them so much she’s grabbed one immediately and swapped it.

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldrons and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone i have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."
