How to Keep Your Shampoo Chairs Looking Like New

Minerva Beauty shampoo chairs and shampoo systems are designed for professional use in a commercial setting. Proper maintenance of your shampoo equipment is critical to its longevity.

Here are some ways to extend the life of your salon or barber shop’s shampoo chairs.

Minimize overspray

Minimizing the amount of water you’re getting on the tops and backs of your shampoo chair vinyl will help maintain the quality of the upholstery.

Avoid letting water sit on the vinyl for an extended period. If water does get on your chair, dry it off with a salon towel to minimize hard water stains.

Use the right cleaners

Wiping down shampoo chairs with harsh chemicals can damage the vinyl and stitching over time. Be sure to use cleaners that are safe for this kind of material.

We highly recommend using our Leather & Vinyl Salon Chair Cleaner- 24oz. This gentle yet effective shampoo chair cleaner is designed to remove product build up from products such as shampoo and conditioner. Because it’s made from coconut oil, this cleaner also slightly conditions the vinyl, helping maintain its appearance.

Pro Tip: Wipe down your shampoo chairs daily to add an additional layer of protection and conditioning for your vinyl. You can also use this cleaner on any vinyl furnishings in your salon such as styling chairs, cutting stools, dryer chairs, and more!

Protect your chairs

Using chair covers over the back of your shampoo chairs will add a layer of protection to spare your chair vinyl from hair color splatter and overspray. Minerva Beauty offers custom designed covers for many of our shampoo chairs, backwashes, and shampoo systems.

Tighten the bolts

Many Minerva Beauty shampoo systems have minimal bolts, but some of our auto-recline standalone shampoo chairs do have some assembly for the arms and reclining components. Be sure to check that the bolts remain tight as they can gradually loosen with daily use.

Pro Tip: You can also use lock tight (threadlocker adhesive), to secure the bolts. Just note, once you’ve used lock tight, it will be very difficult to unscrew the bolts moving forward.
