Cushion Cleaning

I have foam cushion inserts in fabric. They are pretty thick. I want to clean them. Last times I did them I stepped all over them like grapes in a bucket while a hose ran on them.... this was not a geat result.

This time I was thinking I could just rent a steam vac and use that? I only worry the steam wont properly clean sense the foam is neoprene I believe or by any means is not conducive to water. Will steam vac cleaning work?
Is there an industrial dry cleaner in Jacksonville I can drop them off at?
What do you people do? The cushions do not have zippers so I cannot just take them out and clean each individual. ,

Rather than writing up the article again: cushion cleaning

Unfortunately you might have to remove the foam out of the cushion covers to clean... are you good at hand stitching???
