Vacuum the Water Damaged Mattress
Clean the Mattress
Place the Water Damaged Mattress in the Sun
Give it the Sniff Test
Once you have the mattress dried, vacuumed, and cleaned, put your nose close to it and smell for any lingering odors. If you smell anything damp or musty, you may have mold and mildew growing already.
