Why moisture is the enemy of outdoor furniture cushions

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

Outdoor furniture pieces often face challenges that their indoor counterparts don’t have to endure. Many home owners question whether they should leave their outdoor furniture outside when it is not in use. This is because rain and moisture on furniture cushions can lead to a build-up of undesirable microorganisms such as mold, mildew, and bacteria. These organisms can cause allergic reactions and sickness, which is why it’s important to prevent them from spreading on your furniture cushions.

Unfortunately, this can be easier said that done because nature and the weather can be unpredictable. You might be planning on inviting your friends for a meal on your patio when a sudden rainstorm drenches your furniture. There needs to be a way to keep your cushions dry even during unexpected acts of nature.

Many special outdoor furniture cushions have been designed with this problem in mind. Dryfast foam is chemically treated to dry quickly even after being completely soaked. Furthermore, it is made from an anti-microbial formula that makes it difficult for microorganisms such as mold and mildew to grow on its surface. If you need an outdoor foam replacement for your patio furniture cushions, Dryfast foam is an excellent choice.
