How outdoor foam works: how it prevents mold and provides comfort

When it comes to selecting outdoor furniture style and comfort are king, says The Foam Factory. If your outdoor furniture isn’t comfortable, it won’t be appealing to spend much time outdoors. This is especially relevant for those who enjoy entertaining on their deck or patio, unwinding outside at the end of the day, or even sitting outside keeping an eye on their children while they play.

Even the best designed chairs can get uncomfortable after awhile if they don’t have padding. That’s why selecting the correct foam cushion for your patio furniture is important.

When buying new cushions for your patio chairs, be sure to select material that is designed for outdoor use. Dryfast foam comes in varying dimensions to fit all furniture pieces, and is specifically engineered to dry quickly instead of retaining water. You can select from different thickness levels for ideal comfort, and order custom sized pieces if needed. Cushions designed for outdoor use should be antimicrobial so that mold and mildew don’t grow on them. After all, even the most comfortable seating won’t be very appealing if it’s coated in mildew.

Outdoor cushions are able to dry quickly because they are made with open cells to allow air flow. While outdoor foam is designed to withstand the elements, the antimicrobial material can prove handy for other uses around the home. Regardless of where the cushions are used, they will prove to stand up much longer against water’s negative effects. In addition, no one wants to go outside and sit on a soggy cushion. A cushion designed to circulate air and avoid absorbing water will ensure a dry seat when you are ready to enjoy the outdoors.
