  • Armrests

Repairing the Chair Cushion:

Before diving into office chair repairs, we diagnose the root cause of the sagging seat cushion. Common culprits include worn-out foam padding, broken support springs, or a damaged cushion cover. By identifying the cause, we use an effective repair strategy. The flowing are the steps that we take when repairing office chair cushion:

Assess the Foam Padding:

We remove the seat cushion from the chair and inspect the foam padding for signs of wear or compression. If the foam feels flattened or lacks resilience, we replaced it.

Adding Additional Padding:

If the existing foam padding is still in good condition but lacks sufficient support, we add additional padding to restore its shape and firmness. We use materials like foam inserts, upholstery batting, or even a folded towel to bolster the cushion’s structure.

Replace the Foam Insert:

If the foam padding is severely worn or deteriorated, we advice our client to replace the foam insert entirely. As professionals measure the dimensions of the existing foam and purchase a replacement foam insert of the same size and density from a local craft store or online retailer.

Remove the Old Foam:

Carefully we remove the old foam insert from the cushion cover, taking care not to damage the fabric.  We use a utility knife or scissors to cut away any adhesive or stitching holding the foam in place.

Install the New Foam:

We place the new foam insert inside the cushion cover, ensuring a snug and even fit. We trim any excess foam as needed to match the shape of the cushion cover.

Secure the Foam:

Once the new foam insert is in place, we secure it within the cushion cover using adhesive spray or fabric-safe glue. We press down firmly to ensure proper adhesion and allow the glue to dry completely before reassembling the cushion.

 

The seat pan

The seat pan of your office chair is the foundation of comfort and support during long hours of work. Over time, the seat pan can develop cracks, lose its shape, or become unstable, leading to discomfort and decreased productivity. We first identify the specific problem with the seat pan. Common issues include cracks, structural instability, or damage to the seat’s surface. By pinpointing the problem, we determine the most effective office chair repair method. The following are the steps to take when repairing office chair:

Assess the Damage:

Carefully we inspect the seat pan for cracks, dents, or signs of structural weakness. We use a flashlight to illuminate hard-to-see areas and ensure a thorough examination.

Repair Minor Cracks:

For small cracks or chips in the seat pan, we repair them using epoxy resin or plastic filler. We clean the damaged area thoroughly and apply the epoxy or filler according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once dry, we sand the repaired area smooth to ensure a seamless finish.

Reinforce Structural Integrity:

If the seat pan has lost its shape or exhibits significant structural damage, reinforcement may be necessary. We use a piece of plywood or metal sheeting cut to size to provide additional support to the underside of the seat pan. We secure the reinforcement using screws or adhesive, ensuring it is flush with the existing seat pan.

Patch Surface Damage:

If the surface of the seat pan is scratched, gouged, or otherwise damaged, we patch it using a vinyl or leather repair kit. We clean the damaged area and apply the repair compound, following the kit’s instructions for best results. Once dry, we sand the patched area smooth and apply a matching dye or paint to blend with the surrounding surface.

Replace the Seat Pan:

In cases of severe damage or structural instability, replacing the seat pan may be the best option. We follow the manufacturer’s instructions for removing the old seat pan and install the new one to ensure proper fit and function.

 

 

Gas Cylinder:

A sinking office chair can be frustrating and uncomfortable, disrupting your workday and productivity. In most cases, the culprit behind this issue is a faulty gas cylinder, which controls the chair’s height adjustment. Repairing a gas cylinder is a relatively simple task that can save you the cost of a new chair. Here is the process that we follow when repairing a gas cylinder:

Remove the Cylinder:

we start by flipping the chair upside down to access the gas cylinder. Most gas cylinders are attached to the chair base with a mounting bracket or screw mechanism. We use a wrench or screwdriver to loosen and remove any fasteners securing the cylinder to the chair base.

Inspection for Damage:

Once the cylinder is removed, we inspect it carefully for signs of damage or leakage. Common issues include worn seals, cracks in the cylinder body, or leaking hydraulic fluid. If we notice any damage, we replace the entire gas cylinder rather than attempting repairs.

Replace Seals:

If the cylinder appears to be in good condition but is leaking air, we repair it by replacing the seals. We remove the old seals using a seal puller or screwdriver, taking care not to damage the cylinder threads. Install new seals of the same size and type, ensuring they are seated securely in the cylinder housing. When it comes to office chair repair services we are the best choice.

Install the New Cylinder:

If the gas cylinder is irreparably damaged or leaking fluid, w advice our client to do a replacement. We purchase a new gas cylinder from an office chair supplier or hardware store, ensuring it matches the specifications of your chair. We nstall the new cylinder by threading it into the chair base and tightening any fasteners securely.

Testing and Adjusting:

Once the new gas cylinder is installed, we flip the chair upright and test the height adjustment mechanism to ensure it functions properly.

 

Casters:

Smooth-rolling casters are essential for the mobility and functionality of your office chair. Over time, casters can become worn, stuck, or damaged, impeding movement and causing frustration. Repairing or replacing seat casters is a straightforward process that can be done with minimal tools and effort.

We follow the following steps:

Clean and Lubricate:

We Start by inspecting the casters for any visible debris or obstructions that may be hindering movement. We use a vacuum cleaner, compressed air, or a damp cloth to remove dirt, hair, and other debris from the caster wheels and stems. Once clean, we apply a small amount of silicone-based lubricant to the caster axles or stems to ensure smooth rotation. We avoid using oil-based lubricants, as they can attract dirt and debris over time.

Check Wheel Integrity:

During office chair repair services we examine the caster wheels for signs of wear, flat spots, or damage. If the wheels are cracked, chipped, or unevenly worn,  we replace them. Most office chair casters are designed to be easily removable. To replace a damaged caster wheel, we pull the old wheel straight out of the caster stem and insert a new wheel of the same size and type.

 Caster Stems Inspection:

We Check the caster stems for any bending, warping, or other damage that may affect their functionality. If a caster stem is bent or broken, we replace it. Replacement caster stems can often be purchased individually or as part of a caster set from. We remove the old caster stem by pulling it straight out of the chair base, then insert the new stem firmly into place.

 

Test Mobility:

Once the casters have been cleaned, lubricated, and repaired or replaced as needed, we test the chair’s mobility by rolling it across the floor. We ensure that all casters rotate smoothly and that the chair moves freely in all directions.

Loose or broken armrests

Loose or broken armrests can detract from the comfort and functionality of your office chair, impacting your posture and productivity. Office chair repair is a manageable task that can prolong the life of your chair and restore ergonomic support. We use the following steps to diagnose and repair loose or broken seat armrests, helping you regain stability and comfort in your workspace:

Tighten Screws or Bolts:

We begin by examining the armrests for any visible screws or bolts that may have come loose. We us a screwdriver or wrench, tighten these fasteners securely to ensure a snug fit.  We Pay close attention to the attachment points where the armrests connect to the chair frame or base.

Reinforce Attachment Points:

To reinforce these points, we use metal brackets or braces to provide additional support. We remove the armrests from the chair frame and position metal brackets or braces underneath the attachment points. We secure them in place using screws or bolts, ensuring a sturdy connection between the armrests and the chair frame. Choosing Titossy for your office chair repair services is choosing excellence.

Repair Damaged Armrests:

If the armrests themselves are cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged, we replace them. For minor damage, such as small cracks or chips, we use epoxy resin or plastic filler to patch the affected areas. We clean the damaged armrests thoroughly and apply the epoxy or filler according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once dry, we sand the repaired areas smooth and repaint or refinish the armrests to match the chair’s original appearance.

 

Replace Armrests:

In cases of severe damage or irreparable wear, it may be necessary to replace the armrests entirely. Remove the old armrests from the chair frame and install the new ones according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Ensure that the new armrests are securely attached and properly aligned for optimal comfort and support.
