There are few things more enjoyable to a homeowner than being able to relax in their backyard on a warm summer night. Having comfortable patio furniture can make this even more pleasant, which is why people are willing to pay top dollar for high quality chairs, lounge chairs and other items. But patio seating is only as good as the cushions. Once a patio cushion becomes worn or damaged, the furniture loses much of its appeal.
When it’s time to replace the cushions on your patio furniture, it’s a smart decision to opt for dry fast foam. This is a foam that is designed to be used in situations where it will be exposed to moisture such as rain. This has several benefits for people with patio furniture:
Quick Drying: Dry fast foam has open cells — this means that there is more pockets of space inside of the material than standard foam. Open cells mean that there is less material to resist water draining out of the foam when it gets wet, leading to foam that dries faster.
Strong: Despite having open cells, dry fast foam is also very durable. It will last for years even with heavy use or exposure to the elements.
Protects Health: Patio furniture cushions can become a health concern if they stay damp for long periods of time. They can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew and bacteria that can make your family sick. Dry fast foam helps to avoid these issues. It also is made with an antimicrobial formula designed to further inhibit dangerous growths.
