Windermere, what sort of covering have you got?

If they're vinyl cushions, the mildew/mold won't be in the foam - it'll be on the underside of the fabric. You'll have to take the covers off and get them professionally cleaned (if they don't completely fall apart first like our vinyl cushions did).
