How to choose inflatable furniture
Almost all inflatable furniture is universal in use, that is, it can be used indoors and outdoors. However, there are models that have a narrow purpose or are designed for operation in certain conditions. For example, tourist inflatable beds.
The main types of inflatable furniture:
- Sofas suitable not only for relaxing in front of the TV, but also for sleeping. They can have a different size and shape, be standard or transforming.
- Armchairs — a wide group of products, which includes models of various shapes, volumes and spaciousness. Are intended for rest sitting or reclining.
- Beds — similar to air mattresses, but provide more comfortable conditions for sleeping.
- Ottomans, pouffes, deckchairs and other options for non-standard elements of inflatable furniture.
When choosing inflatable furniture, you should pay attention to the method of inflation and the presence of a pump. Most models are inflated with a hand or foot pump designed for rubber products. Powerful equipment (for example, for cars), unless otherwise indicated in the instructions, is not recommended. There are sofas and armchairs that inflate with air flow. More advanced models are equipped with a built-in electric pump.
Frequently asked Questions
How to care for inflatable furniture?
Caring for such things can not be called difficult. It is enough to periodically wipe the products with a wet soft sponge or cloth — you can use soapy water. It is also permissible to rinse them under running water. Do not use too aggressive detergents, brushes and abrasive sponges. Store inflatable furniture in a deflated state, especially in unheated rooms. The product must be cleaned and dried before storage. You need to inflate sofas or chairs by 80-90%, no more.
What is flocking?
Flock is a chemically treated textile. It is applied to rubber and vinyl products (flocking) — in particular, to inflatable furniture and mattresses. The coating creates a velvety, soft surface. It is pleasant to the touch and does not slip.
How to check that an inflatable product is defective?
After purchase, a sofa or chair should be inflated, and if the product is blown away by no more than 10%, then it is without marriage. Air loss of up to 10%, especially during the first two weeks, is normal. If possible, it should be pumped up daily to develop a valve, after which the percentage of air loss will be reduced.
How is an air bed different from a regular mattress?
As a rule, an air bed has an increased size. It can be higher to get up and lie down comfortably. Or be wider. Often the beds have sides at the edges and a comfortable surface without convex rollers. Some models are equipped with headrests. In other words, air beds are more comfortable for sleeping and have an anatomically correct shape, which allows you to sleep on them without back pain even every day.
