Use the Zep, let it dwell a bit and then as heavy a brushing as the fabric can take. And of course follow with steam extraction.
Not all cushions used outdoors are outdoor cushions.This is the only set of cushions that nothing we try gets the mildew off.
Wow that's impressive. I never liked cleaning or storing them. However 5-buildings worth might have changed my opinion on them.Storing cushions can work if you have the room, but a lot more work goes into the logistics of storing a lot of orders than many people account for, and the labor cost to do it right makes it less profitable than a lot of other services. It mainly works as a way to move money into the slower season and help keep techs busy.

Chinese "outdoor look" fabric, natural fiber fabric, UV sensitive thread... and something we're seeing more and more, the wrong foam that holds water.
Outdoor cushion clean and storage was an idea brought to the cleaning industry by Steve DeMarco (Triple S Connecticut). He just didn't want to broadcast the idea to his competitors, so told few people. They currently have five buildings that are stuffed with cushions in the winter.
Joe gets credit for kicking me into getting started, and it does work to smooth out the slow season for us.
That is exactly it!! And we have to be very creative with storing them!!Storing cushions can work if you have the room, but a lot more work goes into the logistics of storing a lot of orders than many people account for, and the labor cost to do it right makes it less profitable than a lot of other services.

We don't seem to have any issues with mice, thankfully. We did have problem once though with cushions stacked floor to ceiling in unused office. The office had spotlights for lighting and a cushion melted/burned where it came in contact with the bulb.how do you keep the mice out?
That is fine to get deodorizer through the cushion.. I wouldn’t Store a cushion in a SpaceBag technique.. The cushion will lose its fluff/shape..We've never tried that, interesting. We'll have to try it.
It's all fair game!! Just be prepared to get creative with storage if it takes off.... Our biggest single order so far was 202 pieces (200 cushions and 2 umbrellas).
We put some cushions from a sunken sailboat through, but open cell foam holds water so well that even that and weeks in the dry room couldn't get water out of the center of the foam.
