Topic: “Mold Resistant Mattress“. Mold can be quite an issue if found in your home and more importantly, it is not only extremely expensive to remove but also very dangerous to have around your home.
If you live in a humid environment, or your house or building is water damaged or simply has water leaking somewhere, you can potentially have mold growth in your home.
If any of that is the case (and even if it’s not), you should be one to take care of yourself and your family.
Molds release spores that, if inhaled, can cause mycotoxin poisoning and the health effects go from respiratory diseases and coughing to persistent headaches and even death.
If mold grows under your mattress, it is a very alarming situation. Because you will constantly expose to mold spores for a long time without even knowing it.
Also, mattresses are very prone to have mold growth under them because some mattresses accumulate moisture and hence are more susceptible to mold growth.
Mold Resistant Mattress Cover & Cleaning:
Mold resistant mattresses are commercially available and are very reliable for use if moisture and humidity are one of your environmental factors.
They are made of latex and usually, the material is natural but sometimes you don’t get a 100% natural latex mattress.
When you go out to buy a mold resistant mattress, be sure to check the material to be sure of getting what you exactly need.
The product specifications normally depend on the environmental conditions at your place.
You may not even need a 100% latex mattress, or you might even need added specs for better protection.
The mattress is usually a one-time investment because the good ones mostly last about 20 to 30 years, which is a lot because of even the normal ones last about that time.
The mattresses are mostly about 6 inches thick, they are available in a number of sizes. In most cases, the following weights are commercially available,
- Crib – 22lbs
- Twin – 67lbs
- Double – 85lbs
- Queen – 105lbs
- King – 132lbs
- Spare Bed – 22lbs
A good (high quality) mold resistant mattress that is 100% natural latex and safe to use will cost you between $1500 to $2500 depending on your brand, comfort, and taxes.
The price isn’t too bad because medicated domestic products do not come cheap and a mold resistant mattress is a very rewarding investment.
