How to Clean Damage From an Expensive Mattress Pad

Mold and mildew may develop on your house as a result of excess moisture. If your mattress pad gets wet and you live in a moist environment, mold and mildew spores can develop. Cotton, rayon and linen are some of the fabrics where mold is most likely to develop. While a mattress pad exposed to flooding probably needs replacing, you can remove mould from a washable pad that’s been wet for less than 48 hours.

Pick out the mattress pad outside and lay it flat in direct sunlight. A patio or driveway works best for this part of the undertaking.

Brush away the mould spores with a stiff scrub brush and permit the mattress pad to stay in sunlight for three or more hours.

Fill a top-loading washing machine with hot water and add laundry soap since the machine fills. If you use a front-loader or high-efficiency machine, place the mattress pad in the machine by itself, add detergent into the dispenser and put the water temperature to hot.

Pour 1 cup of pine cleaner or disinfectant to your top-loading machine since it fills. When using a front-loader or HE machine, fill the bleach dispenser with pine cleaner.

Eliminate the mattress pad from the machine whenever the cycle finishes. If mould stains are still existing, run the pad during the cycle.

Dry the mattress pad in the dryer or hang it to dry in sunlight.

Keep the mattress pad off and dry the bed for at least 2 days. Monitor it for signs of new spore growth. If you see any, discard the pad. If mould spores do not grow and even when the mattress is dry, then it’s safe to set the mattress cover back on the bed.
