They provide the comfort that we feel when we sit in chairs or lie on beds. They are used for cushion pillows and many other domestic types of furniture. Upholstery foam is of different grades. The most common category is the medium grade because it is cheaper although it wears away faster than the other grades. People chose it because of the short-term comfort it gives for the price. The trick about upholstery foam is that you get what you pay for. The higher priced foam is more durable than a lower priced foam, although you do not need a high-priced foam for every piece of furniture.

It's Essential That You Update Your Upholstery Foam For Several Reasons:
When you newly purchased your sofa, do you remember how comfortable it was? Sure, you do. However, after a few months, your upholstery foam may have become too soft for use if you had the medium grade foam in it. You should update the foam to make it feel brand new again.
Over time, the upholstery foam is bound to become loaded with dirt, sweat, moisture, sand and many other unwanted bodies. If you continue to use it that way, it might make your sofa a breeding ground for illness and disease-causing bacteria and lice. Regular cleaning or a total change of the upholstery foam can save you a lot of money that you may spend in seeing a doctor.
A piece of furniture looks sharp and beautiful when new, however with regular use over time, the upholstery foam becomes loose and soft, and it affects the original beauty of the furniture. If you want to re-establish the initial firmness that your furniture once had, you may have to update the upholstery foam. Sometimes when you sit on a weakened upholstery foam, there will be a mark carved out, where you have been sitting. Normally, it is supposed to return to normal when you get up, but because it is weakened, it may remain that way for long thereby losing its shape and firmness. By looking after and updating your upholstery foam will ensure your furniture remains in shape and last for longer. It's worth the money to invest in new foam, for your furniture, so much more cost effective than purchasing a new piece of furniture.
