The Dangers of Mold in Mattresses | What is Mattress Mold?

We all know that mold is dangerous. It can cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, and even trigger allergic reactions. But did you know that mold can also grow in your mattress? And that it can be just as dangerous as the mold growing in your bathroom or basement? In this blog post, we'll discuss what mattress mold is, what causes it, and what the symptoms are. By the time you're finished reading, you'll know everything you need to know about this dangerous pollutant—and how to keep it from taking over your mattress.

What is Mattress Mold?

Mattress mold is a type of mold that grows in mattresses. It's usually caused by moisture and humidity, which can come from a number of sources, including sweat, spills, and leaks. And once it starts growing, it can quickly spread to other parts of the mattress—and even to other parts of your home. Mattress mold is especially dangerous because it's often located near where you sleep, which means you could be breathing it in all night long.

What are the Symptoms of Mold in Your Mattress?

The symptoms of mold in your mattress can vary depending on the type of mold and the amount of exposure. However, some common symptoms include coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, headaches, difficulty breathing, skin irritation, and fatigue. If you experience any of these symptoms after sleeping on a new mattress or after waking up from a nap, it's possible that you have mattress mold. In severe cases, mold can even lead to serious respiratory infections. If you think you may have mattress mold, it's important to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Customer testimonials

I had a devastating fire in my home, which led to extensive water and mold damage. Gary and his crew were so polite and professional. They took great care in cleaning and packing my possessions in an orderly way. They compiled an easy to follow inventory, cataloging everything and providing a detailed list of all of the contents of my home. When I was able to move back into my house, all of my belongings were returned to their proper places. Gary always worked in my best interest and it was wonderful to feel like he was an ally to me during this extremely difficult time in my life. I would recommend Giordano Restoration to anyone who is faced with a disaster in their home.
