That's awful.

I found this..it makes sense, but I don't think there is much help for your current mattress .

This problem primarilly affects foam mattresses and is caused by perspiration and poor ventillation under the mattress.
Almost everyone perspires constantly, and depending on temperature, much of this can happen at night. Some of this moisture goes into the mattress and, if ventillation below the mattress is good, it simply evaporates.

Poor ventillation (a waterproof boxspring, carpeted floor, plywood, etc.) is a different story. Moisture will pool between the mattress and the surface below, encouraging mould to grow. Darkness and bodyheat compound the problem. Air usually penetrates 10-12 inches into the mattress evaporating moisture around the edges and focusing the mould towards the center.

Unfortunately there is no effective way to clean a mattress after mould has appeared. Prevention is the best method:

Buy a mattress with corrugated airflow layers
Use a breathable boxspring
Use a slatted bed-base (no more than 2" between slats for best support)

I make 90% of the poverty level. I realized today that those who make 100% to 400% of the poverty level are eligible for subsidies, but those of us who make less are not.
[01:06:30 am]: Shannon
What options are there for people who make less than 100% of the poverty level?
[01:06:40 am]: Shannon
My state has not expanded medicare, so I'm not eligible for that either.

Thanks for your interest in the Health Insurance Marketplace. We have a lot of visitors trying to use our website right now. This is causing some glitches for some people trying to create accounts or log in. Keep trying, and thanks for your patience. You might have better success during off-peak hours, like later at night or early in the morning. We'll continue working to improve the site so you can get covered!
[01:13:08 am]: Shannon
That didn't even come close to addressingmy question.
[01:14:06 am]: Shannon
Why are bots used to provide live chat? It's rather useless to have "live" chat when the bot at the other end isn't really alive.
[01:14:40 am]: Juan

Yep, that makes sense but our bed is on a breathable boxspring and the bottom of the box springs is about 6 inches above the floor
