Tips for Cleaning Office Chair Wheels

Your office chair wheels play an important role in your ability to move around your workspace. Over time, they can become covered in dirt and debris, making them more difficult to clean and requiring more effort to move. In this article, we’ll share some tips on how to clean your office chair wheels and keep them in good condition.

What You’ll Need

  • A vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. 
  • A soft cloth. 
  • A mild soap. 
  • Water.


1. Use the vacuum cleaner to remove any loose dirt and debris from the office chair wheels. Be sure to go over the wheels several times to make sure they are clean.

2. Wet the soft cloth with water and add a few drops of mild soap. Gently wipe down the office chair wheels with this solution. 3. Rinse the wheels with clean water and dry them with a clean towel. 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 if necessary.

How to Remove Office Chair Wheels

If your wheels are particularly dirty, you may want to remove them and clean them separately from the chair itself. This will give you a chance to really scrub them clean and get all the dirt and grime out. Here’s how to remove office chair wheels:

  • Start by loosening the screws that hold the wheel in place. You may need a screwdriver for this. 
  • Once the screws are removed, the wheel should come right out. 
  • Repeat this process for each wheel on the chair.

Once the wheels are removed, you can clean them with soap and water, or a more specialized cleaner if needed. Be sure to dry them thoroughly before replacing them on the chair.

Additional Tips

  • If your office chair wheels are particularly dirty, you may want to soak them in a mixture of vinegar and water before scrubbing. 
  • To prevent rusting, dry the wheels thoroughly after cleaning. 
  • If your office chair has casters with brakes, be sure to test the brakes after cleaning to make sure they are working properly.
