If you have a Zinus mattress that is in good condition, you should keep a close eye on it
Many people in the country have a Zinus mattress, as they are quite inexpensive, comfortable, and widely available. Regrettably, this is really the case with Zinus mattresses, as the fiberglass inside these products can easily become exposed by opening the zipper or due to wear and tear or holes.
The most important piece of advice when it comes to preventing a large amount of fiberglass from escaping the mattress is not removing the outer cover, which has a zipper. The defective nature of these products actually concerns the zipper, which indicates to consumers that it is alright to take off the cover for laundering or for other reasons.
Because the fiberglass in a Zinus mattress can come off even if you do not remove the outer cover, although in smaller amounts, it is crucial to pay close attention to the product and to examine it periodically for fiberglass leaks.With wear and tear, a lot of pressure is put on the outer cover, which will eventually lie directly on the inner layer of fiberglass.
Shards of glass can penetrate the outer cover and injure you or one of your family members during sleep. While this will not happen to all Zinus mattresses, it is likely to occur, so it is best to keep a close eye on the condition of your mattress and to take it out of your home as soon as you notice fibers of glass leaking from it.
How do I know if my Zinus mattress leaks fiberglass?
Since most fibers of glass in mattresses are very tiny, as well as translucent, you may not be able to see them with the naked eye. To check if your Zinus mattress is leaking fiberglass, you can use a flashlight after turning off the light in the room by pointing it to the mattress and the surrounding areas. Light will make fiberglass shine and sparkle and help you locate it if it is present in the room.
You and your family may come to find that fiberglass has leaked from your Zinus mattress, by inhaling it and having respiratory symptoms or by having rashes and cuts on your skin. If you sleep on a mattress with fiberglass on its surface, even if it is covered by a bedsheet, the shards of glass will penetrate the layer of fabric and may thereby become embedded in your skin or cause small lacerations overnight. You may also wake up with the following symptoms:
- itchy skin
- skin rash
- eye injuries
- nose and throat soreness
Consequently, if you saw fiberglass in your bedroom or woke up with unusual symptoms, your Zinus mattress is leaking fiberglass, and you should get rid of it immediately. Nevertheless, if you want to join the Zinus lawsuit that is currently pending against the company, you will have to keep the defective mattress in a place from where it can no longer contaminate your home as evidence, take pictures, and document the mattress and your injuries.
