Missing glides should be replaced to avoid tipping/slipping.Metal Frames – Clean with soft cloth or sponge and a mild detergent solution; rinse than dry with soft cloth or buckskin. DO NOT USE aggressive products such as acids, solvents, or solutions containing chlorine or ammonia. Powder detergents, steel wool, and plastic fiber sponges can ruin the surfaces. Die-cast aluminum frames with chrome plating can occasionallyhave some slight peeling in heavy use environments.Wood Chairs & Stools – At least every three months perform a thorough inspection of each piece. Particular care should be taken in inspecting the seat rails and bottom and front side rails for loose joints. One loose joint will put extra pressure on the remaining joints, eventually resulting in loosening of all joints. This could result in the chair’s collapsing. In the event that any of the joints become loose, you should take the chair out of service. Each chair should be periodically cleaned (the wood finish) with a water-soluble solution to remove built up grease and grime. Do not leave cleaning solution on too long. Wood chairs should not be exposed to extreme temperatures, particularly heat or moisture, near cooking facilities.Upholstery – Leather: can be cleaned with a mild saddle soap using care as color may darken. Vinyl can be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution or good grade automotive vinyl cleaner. Do not allow stains to set. Fabrics are quite varied; it is best to determine the composition of the fabric then clean with a substance recommended for that composition; the fabric source would have recommendations for each pattern.Polypropylene, Polycarbonate, Polyurethane (Derby & Uno) – Periodic cleaning can be done using a simple lukewarm solution of Ivory Liquid; rinse and dry with soft rag or buckskin. DO NOT USE aggressive products such as acids, solvents, or products containing alcohol, chlorine, or ammonia. Powder detergents, steel wool, and plastic fiber sponges can ruin the surfaces. Long term exposure to direct sunlight may cause some color change but does not affect strength of the product. When matching existing product, there may be some color variation.FLAMMABILITY –Flammability Codes/Foam – All standard Segis USA products are manufactured to meet the flammability requirements of California Technical Bulletin #117.
