Fixing a Squeaky Office Chair

Everybody in your office will be annoyed at a squeaky office chair, if it's yours at home you will be annoyed. Either way let's fix it. It's easier than you would think.

First make sure the chair is on a even surface and is level, if this is all in alignment let's proceed. I always try to use organic materials when possible. So I go to olive oil first, you can also use WD40. Put this on the springs and bolts under the seat. Make sure you have a cloth for any extra oil that could stain, if you haven't already protected the area (seat and space where fixing).

If it still squeaks go to every bolt, screw, and spring seeing if they are tight, or evenly tightened. You can adjust them or just unscrew and redo to make sure each one is in its correct position. If the chair is older, use the oil (or DW40) before you unscrew the screws or bolts. Then apply again before you replace them. This step will make sure everything is lubricated evenly.

This should have your squeaky chair as quiet as the day it was bought. Remember moisture in the air or air conditioning causes rust, so using the oil prevents and removes the built up rust keeping it from happening again in the future.

I used California olive oil instead of stinky wd40, the last time I used wd40 I had to put the chair out in the garage until the smell dissipated ! not with the olive oil.

Just wanted to comment that using WD-40 will be a temporary fix. It lubricates somewhat but mostly is for displacing water. Using something like silicone-based WD-40 (yellow can) will last longer.
