SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

It's a Problem Solver story that gave people the creeps -- an exposé of the refurbished mattress business.  A Detroit family is now getting some help thanks to our story.

Click here to watch Rob Wolchek's original story -- "Dirty little mattress secret uncovered".

Rob says this family thought they were buying new mattresses.  That's the scary part about refurbished mattresses.  They look brand new.

Del and her kids now have three real brand new mattresses.  It was all done by a good guy named Jeff from Mattress to Go.  He's just a small businessman who saw our story and wanted to make sure Del and her kids weren't sleeping on anything except nice, clean, new beds inside and out.

In his video report, Rob also shows you what was inside Del's old mattresses.
