Choosing foam for your seat cushions

The primary characteristics you want from a seat cushion are comfort and durability. However, different types of foam will suit a different range of cushions. For example, Dry Fast foam is perfect for outdoor use.

Important terms

When shopping for a foam cushion, there is some terminology that you will need to know. The first is the density of the foam. The density of the foam is the amount air trapped within the foam. The key metric for foam density is pounds per cubic foot. The higher the value, the higher the density, and the more durable.

The other property is the IDF (Indentation force deflection) value of the foam. It is the amount of weight it takes to compress the foam by 25%. IDF values range from 30 (soft) to 70(firm). A foam with an IDF of 40 will take 40 pounds to compress by a quarter.

Indoor foam cushions

The best foam for indoor use is the affordable polyurethane foam. It does not handle moisture well, which is why it is better suited for indoor use. Regarding density, polyurethane foam ranges from 0.8 to 6.

Outdoor foam

Open and closed cell foam both work for outdoor use. However, for seat cushions, open cell foam is a better option. An open cell foam like Dry Fast foam is the best. According to The Foam Factory: Dryfast foam is specialized for outdoor applications because of its superb ability to allow water and other liquids to flow through it very easily.

How to maintain wicker patio furniture

Summary: Wicker is perfect for the outdoors, but can take a beating from the weather. With some care and maintenance like regular brushing, adjusting the weave, covering it, and a touch-up paint coat, wicker furniture will last for years.

The iconic look of wicker lends itself to patios, backyards, poolsides, and other outdoor areas. Unfortunately, when outside, the exposure to the elements can wreak havoc with any furniture. The only way to get the most out of your wicker furniture is consistent maintenance. Here is a quick primer on how to look after and maintain wicker furniture:

Wicker is easy to care for, all you need to do is brush the furniture regularly. The most dirt and grit you find the most often it will need cleaning. When you don’t brush them, little bits of dirt and organic matter will collect and cause mold and mildew to form.

Alternatively, another method to preserving the furniture is to cover them when nobody is using them. You can take it one step further and even store them away during times of extreme weather, thereby reducing the exposure to the weather.

In addition to the brushing, have a look at the weave every month or so and move them back in to place. The weave moves around and gives enough time can cause the substance to stretch and fray.

Painted wicker will fade and get damaged over time. A touch-up coat from a spray can keep it looking new and protect the wicker at the same time. Look at the frame, as some frames are painted and will require a touch-up coat.
