Dead Skin Cells
The average body sheds approximately 30,000 to 40,000 skin cells every hour! So you can only imagine how much of that ends up in your mattress.
You probably won’t ever notice or react to this in any way, but it’s unpleasant to think about.
All it takes is a bit of excess moisture, body heat, and a dark environment to create the perfect hiding spot for mold.
Your mattress is a great environment for mold. The air pockets in the foam are ideal hiding spots for mold to take root and grow. Out of all the items on the list, mold is the most dangerous.
Without proper mattress cleaning, mold spores spread quickly throughout the house and can cause respiratory issues.
