How Outdoor Furniture Cushions Can Prevent Allergies

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

There are a variety of allergy triggers that people may encounter outdoors. Homeowners with outdoor dining areas may not be aware of the allergens present in their outdoor furniture cushions. Moisture in cushions makes them prone to the growth of microorganisms on their surface. Fungi such as mold and mildew are examples of unwanted microorganisms that can cause allergic reactions such as sneezing, congestion, runny noses, and itching eyes. In the worst cases, they may even trigger asthma.

Fortunately, homeowners can stop the growth of mold and mildew on their cushions by using the right kind of outdoor furniture cushions. The Foam Factory sells a type of outdoor foam known as Dryfast Foam. This unique product is designed to resist moisture and the growth of microorganisms. Dryfast Foam is made using a special process that makes it more porous than standard foam. As a result of its unique structure, Dryfast Foam dries quickly, even after being completely soaked. Furthermore, it is made from an antimicrobial formula that suppresses the growth of mold and mildew on its surface.
