How can someone tell if mold is growing in their mattress?
A. Usually, the first evidence of mold is a musty odor. Mold spores are too small to see, however, colonies of mold growth can be seen on damp and musty-smelling innards of the mattress. If you own a mattress that unzips, you can inspect the inside of your mattress for mold spores as well as address the issue in the rare case that mold growth has occurred. However, if you own a traditional mattress with a cover that cannot be opened the mold may not be visible.
