Is it Important to Prevent the Growth of Molds Under RV Mattresses?
Mold is a silent killer.

Instead, you must adopt methods to lock moisture out of your recreational vehicles.
4 Effective Ways to Stop the Growth of Molds Under RV Mattresses
Aspergillosis is an infection caused by Aspergillus, a common mold found in RV mattresses exposed to moisture for a long. Most people breathe in Aspergillus spores every day without getting sick. As per a report released by NORD (National Organization of Rare Disorder), 1-4 million people worldwide are affected by it every year. It’s worse to know that chronic pulmonary aspergillosis hits more than 3 million people around the globe in a year.
Statistics like these make it even more crucial to understand and implement ways to stop molding under RV mattresses. Let’s see how-
Use the Right Mattress
Choosing the right mattress is the first step toward keeping your RV clean and healthy. That’s why Kogler’s Road Cloud RV Mattress is manufactured using the temperature-stable Clini-Foam™ technology with airflow channels. This is the same feature used in the hospital beds to give the right support to wounded patients.
The mattress is not damp and sticky but rather rejuvenating and restorative. Moreover, our premium Revive+™ mattress comes with triple layers of temperature-stable Clini-Foam™ with airflow channels that help cushion the body, preventing aches and pains related to other mattresses."
Put an Under-Mattress Airflow Pad
Using an under-mattress airflow pad will ensure no moisture is locked as it has anti-condensation ventilation mattress underlay made with spun polymer and plastic. It lifts the entire mattress (even when you are sleeping on it) and lets the air to flow underneath.
Under-mattress airflow pad ensures all-time anti-condensation and airflow, even during rainy days and in humid regions.
Insulate Under the Mattress
If you are low on budget, use double-layered cardboard to insulate under the RV mattress to stop condensation. This trick works by decreasing the temperature difference between the RV mattress and the cold wood underneath.
However, there’s a limitation of this technique as it will only work well during moderately humid climates only. Also, you would have to check and replace cardboards regularly as they can lock moisture after some time. It’s advised to air out under the mattress after cold rainy days.
Air Out the Mattress
This is the simplest and cost-free method to prevent your RV mattress from locking moisture. Air it out by lifting it using the support of cans, step stools, wooden boxes, etc. You can make it better by placing a fan or dehumidifier near it, so the moisture trapped is sucked out regularly. Be careful that the bed’s plywood doesn’t dry entirely due to the fan.
