A question that often arises when we are furnishing our homes with bean bags is – how long will they last? The answer depends upon the quality of the materials used, how big is your bean bag chair and how much you use it. Many people prefer to go for the cheaper ones as they are easy to maintain, they do not require any special care, and they are very comfortable. On the other hand, if you treat it with the utmost care it can last longer than you expect. Below you will find some of the answers to the question how long does a bean bag chair last.
These chairs are made up of special polystyrene beads, which have been filled with liquid latex. The beads are sealed inside the bag and hence when you sit on it the liquid flows through the beads and reaches your buttocks. This helps in keeping the air trapped within the bag and helps in reducing sweating. The bags that are made of synthetic material generally last longer than the ones made of natural polystyrene.
One important thing that you need to keep in mind about these bags is that you should never expose them to extreme temperatures. Most of the bean bags are designed to withstand heat, however, there are some exceptions. When you buy such bags you must make sure they are made from polyurethane foam or polystyrene. This is because these bags tend to expand slightly when placed under direct heat. It would be better if you use bean bags that do not expand too much.
The cloth that is used for the handles of the bean bags should be a good quality one. The handles of the bag should be strong so that they do not break off in case of an accident. If the handles of the bag are made from low density plastic, the bag can break easily. Therefore it is important that you buy bean bags with handles made from good quality material.
You should buy a bag that has an attached padlock. The reason behind this is that you do not want your child to accidentally remove the cover of the bag. There are some covers that are designed to be removed by a tool while other covers are designed to be removed by the hands. Therefore, it is important that you make sure you get a bean bag chair that has a padlock attached to the cover.
The last factor that you need to know about the bean bag chairs is the type of cover that they have. The covers of the bags should be treated well, so that they remain durable. Some of the bags have a PVC plastic covering, which means that the bags will be able to resist stains and other forms of damage. Most of the bags have polyester covers which mean that they can resist heat and moisture. Most of the chairs have UV protective covers over them as well.
