Test the chair to find the exact point of the squeak. The two most common areas are the base and the back support.
Spray the squeaky area clean with canned air to clear away any dust and dirt.
Spray the squeaking area with the silicon-based spray. Be sure to spray part of the chair where two metal pieces touch each other. This is a common area for squeaking.
Move the part back and forth to allow the lubricant to spread to the entire piece.
Repeat as needed if the chair starts to squeak again, because the lubricant will eventually dry out over time.
Things You Will Need
- Canned air
- Silicon-based lubricating spray
- You can also use Vaseline in place of a lubricating spray for a longer lasting solution. However, Vaseline will collect more dust and dirt.
