Incident Details
  • Incident Description: I bought a mattress in late 2020 the Serta I-Series 1000. Upon washing the mattress cover these was millions of fiberglass or carbon fibers all over my bedroom, living room, laundry room, it was a nightmare. I will need to spend thousands to replace several items that have been damaged permanetly. The cleaning alone costed thousands and 3 days of missed work. There was no warning labels nothing that indicated you couldn't wash or remove the cover. I am severe asthmatic and had breathing issues for 2 weeks after cleanup. I still find little particles and have been told by professionals it's likely falling from my popcorn ceilings. They quoted 3200$ to paint the rooms as they would need to wear hazmat gear.
