When you are not using your folding chairs it is important to store them properly to avoid damage or unnecessary wear and tear on them. The better you take care of the chairs the longer they will last you and the more money they will save you in the long run.
When you store your chairs, whether on a chair dolly or not, use covers to stop dust from building up on them. You can use anything from a large tarp to bed sheets; anything that will keep the dust out. There are several reasons why this is important. For one thing, you do not want to waste time trying to clean every individual chair before they need to be used. That can cause very costly and irritating delays.
Excessive dust build up can also mean that particles sneak into crevasses and other parts of the chair you might miss when cleaning them. This could irritate allergies for someone sitting on or near your chairs.
Dust can also be very difficult to completely get out of padded folding chairs. Cloth seats and chair backs should be kept as clean as possible, and these are some of the first places dust will settle if you are not careful.
Besides dust, you should also avoid storing wooden folding chairs in areas with excessive moisture or temperatures. This could warp the wood over time, making the frame of a chair unstable and prone to cracking or splintering.
