Should I dispose of a mattress that has fiberglass?

If you were injured by the glass fibers in a mattress, it is a good idea to keep it in a safe place for evidence so that you can recover financial compensation for your injury. However, after you receive the money, you should dispose of it with the help of a team of professionals.

You should keep the mattress as evidence until you recover financial compensation

If you removed the outer cover of an Ashley, or Nectar mattress for washing and your house became contaminated with glass fibers, we advise you to remove it from your bedroom since fiberglass can cause significant health issues and unwanted injuries when exposed to it. 

Furthermore, we advise you to keep and safely store the mattress as evidence in an isolated place in your house until you manage to recover the money you are entitled to from the liable manufacturer. 

Afterward, you should dispose of it, as well as clean your house, with the help of a team of professionals who specialize in removing hazardous agents, as glass fibers are tiny and thereby very difficult to remove by yourself. The compensation you will receive should help you cover the cost of the cleanup.
