  • Washing the sheets with hot water every week will also kill the mites.
  • Get a good mattress cover. Prevent your mattress dirty from the beginning! It would be much easier to wash the shield or mattress cover than to clean the mattress yourself, so using one of these protectors will save you a lot of time.
  • If you happen to have a Tempurpedic ™ mattress with a Tempurpedic ™ waterproof mattress cover, be aware that although the mattress cover is of excellent quality, it is not too durable and should not be machine washable with the sheets. Washing with a washing machine will eventually cause a small tear resulting in significant leakage and loss of effectiveness. Instead, the mattress cover of this type should be cleaned by hand for the dirty parts and checked carefully to determine if there is a leak. This mattress cover can lose its benefits and effectiveness within two years if not properly maintained.
  • Vacuum your mattress with a vacuum cleaner once every month or so. This will reduce the dust on the mattress. Dust barriers that cover the mattress can reduce the dust that is attached to the mattress and also mites.
  • Flip your mattress once a week to allow each side to come in contact with the air. This can prevent mold growth. At the very least, do this every month once or more. Before turning it over, check if your mattress can be turned over. Some mattresses have sides intended for the top and will not feel so comfortable if mounted upside down.



  • If the fungus persists, it may be worth considering a dehumidifier. This tool will reduce the air humidity so that inhibits the growth of fungus. Mites or bed bugs also like moisture, so dehumidifiers will be very beneficial if you have flea or allergy allergies.

Spin the mattress regularly and use a waterproof mattress cover or carpet if you often take pets to bed. Paerlu note that the fungus will accumulate at the bottom of the mattress if the mattress is left on the floor, and also the fleas. Lift the mattress off the floor (including the bed) to keep it high so as to make it easier to clean the dust under the bed. Or place the mattress on the roll bed so it is easy to move.
