mold question

dv8 dv8
I've noticed that many of the Liberator foam products are enclosed in protective waterproof liners. If the liners are keeping water out, they should also keep any moisture trapped inside. In the long run, are the foam or the interior of the liners at risk of developing a growth of mold or mildew? Or are they treated with any antifungal chemicals?

Good question.

I know that most of the higher end foams are treated to prevent mold/bacteria from growing. This comes form my years doing upholstery, the higher the price for foam the better.

I look forward to hearing what Liberator has to say.

Yikes! I'll have to ask that question myself, and the people I need to ask have already left for the day. Let me get back with you on that.

A quick note--it is virtually impossible to get moisture past the inner liner. The only way I could see the foam getting wet is if it is sitting out without any covers. If it were to get wet, you would of course want to let it dry before putting the covers back on.

Thanks for getting back to us, Cassandra. I'm actually kinda curious though too. I've never had my inner foam ever get wet, so I don't think it's a huge possibility, but I wonder if the liner keeps moisture in too.

Thanks Cassandra. I would think it would be hard as well. If the liner is anything like the throe's you would have to be careless.

Even if the inner liner blocks moisture, air always has some humidity. My concern is that body heat would warm up the foam and liner and then a little bit of moisture would condense when the product cooled back down.

Okay, I was able to reach someone in customer service, and they said that in the 8 years that we have been in business, there has never been a problem with moisture build-up or mold. First, the microfiber cover is thick, which already prevents a level of moisture from getting through. Second, the inner nylon cover is meant to trap any other moisture from getting through. Unless you are submerging the pieces in water or spraying them with a hose, you will not have a problem!

I hope this answers your question.
