Air Circulation – Will My Mattress Get Moldy?

The average person loses about a pint of moisture a night. Our bodies warm up our beds, but solid surfaces, such as floors or solid plywood do not warm up at the same…

You get the mattress home and within a few months your mattress has slid half way down your frame, has a huge…
