Fiberglass and Your Health

Sleep is supposed to support your health. Some experts call it the most important part of a healthy life-style, but if your mattress contains fiberglass it can damage your health. 

Fiberglass is small, almost invisible pieces of glass. Many mattresses contain fiberglass these days, as manufacturers use it for its fire retardant properties. However, if it is released into your home, fiberglass can put you and your family’s health at risk. 

Zinus is the most well known mattress brand with fiberglass in it. If the zipable cover becomes removed or damaged, many of our client’s homes become contaminated.

However, any mattress with fiberglass poses a risk to your health.

Prolonged exposure can lead to many many different medical problems, including 

  • Rashes on skin
