After several years of use might undeniably have started to notice that your boat cushions have been inflicted by dirt, mildew or mold. This is because these elements thrive on moisture and the marine environment is the perfect breeding ground for them. Apart from being quite unsightly, these problems also pose a health hazard. If you tend to keep your boat in the water, you might never completely get rid of mold and mildew. However, there are some actions that can be taken to clean out your boat cushions.

Carlo Badalamenti has been in the foam industry for several decades now. His company has sold various boat foams. In order to clean your boat cushions, you could first start by removing the cushions for their frame. A spot cleaning can then be carried out with the use of a sponge. After the spot cleaning, it is preferable to let the cushions dry completely to avoid the further formation of mildew. In the case where the cushions are already attacked by mildew, you could clean them by using a mixture of detergent, water and bleach. It is important not to overdose the bleach to prevent any deterioration in your cushions. The cleaning mixture can then be allowed to soak for about thirty minutes. The cushions can then be scrubbed and then rinsed thoroughly to drain out any residual detergent or bleach.

Foam Factory, Inc. specializes in foam products such as custom cushions for several outdoors applications. They also have a fast-drying foam that is ideal for boat cushion.
