Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

Divider

Base, Frame, and Arms

Normal cleaning
 

Wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen.

Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.

Seat, Back, and Arm Pads

Normal cleaning
 

Wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. 

Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

FLEXNET Suspension Seat

Normal cleaning
 

Vacuum fabric as needed using an upholstery attachment. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Spot Cleaning
 

Immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth.

Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove.

Water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk
 

Use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam. Soak up all remaining solution and then use a clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue.

Never use hot water; it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing.

Oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing
 

Use a dry cleaning solution applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Test the cleaning solution on a small, concealed area first. If there is no spotting, ringing, or damage to the fabric or its dyes, apply the cleaning solution to the soiled area with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain and work toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric. K2R is also a product that can be used. See product label for complete instructions.

Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material. Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers. Several light applications are better than one heavy application. Soak up all remaining solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue. Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using. If the stain resists cleaning, contact a professional cleaner.

Large Areas
 

If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.

Solid, the right balance of support and freedom of movement. Superior design, built right, easily best of the best.
The chair is solid. It's perfect for my playing guitar and desk work. Mixing sessions that last hours and hours don't hurt anymore. The chair has the right balance of support and freedom of movement. I think this is by far the most well designed and solidly built chair I've had. A chair perfectly executed.

Well made, Colors True to Shown, Flexnet Drawbacks
First, this chair looks exactly as I designed. It is very well made and comes fully assembled. I ordered the flexnet, thinking it would provide more comfort than the plastic seat. It's quite firm without much give. I am hoping that it gives a little with repeated sitting, but maybe that's what is supposed to be good for my rear and back? Not sure. Time will tell. I was hoping I'd first sit in it and be in comfort with an "aaaaahhh" feeling. Not the case. But the setback fits well in the contours of my back and the seat fits my rear and hips well. The flex net is not comfortable wearing shorts or a skirt with bare legs though. The netting is a bit rough.

Love, Love, Love this chair!

Great All Around
We tracked down this chair model for the office to match a chair we purchased several years ago. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the chair was still in production and met the same quality standards as the original chair--which is still going strong after several years of daily use. Works well for the small space. The only downside I have encountered in the design is that as a shorter person, I need to have the chair at its maximum height in order for my arms to be at proper/standard desk height, but this leaves my legs dangling (unable to touch the floor) and I know that not having feet on the floor is not ergonomically ideal. Having some sort of foot ring might help (as with drafting height chairs). I use the chair legs to brace my feet instead, but for a chair of this price and design, considering variable height issues would be an added benefit. That being said, we love the chairs!

Best office chair I've ever owned - can sit for hours w/o discomfort
The Caper Multipurpose Chair has been on my wish list for the past 2 years. It was in my graduate office at school, I fell in love the moment I sat down. It is an investment, but it is worth it - comfortable, cool, simple. This chair is solid and will be with me for the rest of my life.

Perfect desk chair!
From the moment I opened the delivery box and saw how carefully and cleverly the chair was packed to roll right out into my house, I realized that I had made the right choice. I love this chair. It's light and highly adjustable, sturdy and just perfect.

Is it easy to remove the arms?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2016
Best Answer: The arms on the chair are removable. We recommend working with an Authorized Dealer to remove the arms since there is an additional part called a no arm plug that is needed. This plug goes in place of the arms to prevent the back from coming off. To find the Authorized Dealer closest to you, please follow this link: http://www.hermanmiller.com/Store/Find-a-Location

Chair Mat

I own the Caper chair with the carpet casters that I use in my home office. It is the best home office chair in my opinion. I am considering getting an olefin rug that has a very dense .5 inch pile for placement under the chair. The rug will sit on a concrete floor in my basement. Do I need to have a chair mat for support and/or to avoid damaging the rug?
A shopper on Jan 29, 2016
Best Answer: We recommend adding the three inch casters to the chair. These casters work well with deep pile carpeting. They can be purchased by the following link http://store.hermanmiller.com/Products/3-inch-Hard-Floor-or-Carpet-Caster
