How to Remove Mould from Cushions

How to remove mould from cushions

Mould is a common problem that can occur on cushions, including outdoor furniture cushions, if they are not properly cleaned or stored. Mould can cause health issues and affect the overall appearance and lifespan of your cushions. In this blog, we will discuss some effective ways to remove mould from cushions and prevent its recurrence.

Outdoor Chair Cushions

Identify the affected cushions. Before starting the cleaning process, it is essential to identify which cushions have mould growth. Check each cushion carefully, especially those that are kept in damp or humid areas. Look for visible signs of mould growth, such as black, green or grey patches. If you notice any signs of mould, take immediate action to prevent its spread.

Outdoor Seat Cushions

Prepare the cleaning solution. To remove mould from cushions, you will need a cleaning solution that can effectively kill mould spores. You can make a DIY solution by mixing equal parts of vinegar and water in a spray bottle. Alternatively, you can use a commercial mould and mildew cleaner that is specifically designed for fabric.

Sunbrella Outdoor Cushions

Clean the cushions. Start by vacuuming the cushions to remove any loose mould spores or debris. Then, spray the cleaning solution on the affected areas and let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes. Use a soft-bristled brush or sponge to scrub the mould off the cushion gently. Be sure to wear gloves and a mask to protect yourself from mould spores.

Outdoor Lounge Cushions

After scrubbing, rinse the cushion thoroughly with water to remove any remaining cleaning solution and mould spores. Then, squeeze out the excess water and place the cushion in a well-ventilated area to dry. Avoid drying the cushions in direct sunlight or using a dryer, as this can damage the fabric.

Mould can be a serious problem for your cushions, but with the right cleaning techniques and preventive measures, you can keep them mould-free and in excellent condition for longer.
