If you do find mould on your cushions – don’t panic. The key to treating mould stains is to clean the cushion as soon as you see the mould forming.
Dilute 1 cup of bleach with ¼ cup of mild soap per 5 litres of water and use a spray bottle to apply the solution to the affected area, allowing it to soak for 15 minutes. Then, clean the mould off of the cushion with a washing-up brush or nail brush. If there is still some mould remaining, spray the cushion with a jet washer – just make sure to vent the cushions if water gets inside.
We strongly recommend checking your furniture regularly when it’s covered, to ensure mould, mildew and rodents do not pose a problem.
