Default Mildew under mattress

Does anybody have a solution for stopping the mildew from growing on the underside of the forward cabin mattress probably caused by the A/C unit under the bed?

They make pads that can be inserted underneath the mattress to promoted airflow. I doubt it's the AC. It's a common issue in RV's and boats.

You also need to properly remove the mold. Bleach and such don't kill mold. I had Servpro come out to my boat and they told me exactly what they'd do to clean my boat (for $600+). They scrub everything with Sporicidin. I went and bought a gallon and did it all myself. This is supposedly one of the few things that will kill everything harmful on a surface.
