Many mattresses will get mould this year. Your mattress doesn’t have to. Black mould is especially bad for your health and can cause allergies and asthma symptoms. There are simple preventative methods to keep your mattress from acquiring mould.
It seems a given but many of us have a habit of eating in bed. Young kids and even pets can bring their food to bed and can make a mess. Drinks and especially milk can be spilled along the side of the bed. If there is poor ventilation. Mould can grow easily on the underside of the mattress.
It’s a bad idea to place your mattress directly on the floor. This causes poor air circulation for the mattress fabric especially if the mattress is placed in a corner. This poor placement can cause great conditions for mould to grow. Having a proper bed frame allows the mattress material to breathe and protects it against mould.
Protective Mattress Pad
Having a mattress pad can create a significant barrier against sweat, water, and other food messes. This prevents most dirt and debris from penetrating deep within the mattress material. Mould spores can’t enter the material and start growing.
Having clean bed sheets is essential for your health. Weekly or bi-weekly washing of the bedding will prevent pests and mould from getting into your mattress. The bedding also guards a bit against mould. It’s the first line of protection.
