You spend so much of your time on a mattress, why not give it some proper treatment? Read these steps to store your mattress properly at Spaces Self Storage.
Steps for Storing Your Mattress
- Find a Cool, Dry Place Away from Pets and Sharp Objects
We recommend using a temperature controlled storage unit to store your mattress. If you are storing sharp objects along with your mattress, consider getting separate units to prevent damage.
- Clean the Mattress
Upholstery cleaner tends to work best! After the deed is done, vacuum both sides to lift any loose dirt.
- Take Your Bed Apart
Make sure to keep some screws handy – otherwise you won’t be able to put it back together! Use old sheets or blankets to cover the pieces during transit. To help keep the dust off, cover them with blankets during storage.
- Buy a Quality Mattress Cover
We sell durable mattress covers from Packrite at great prices. As long as the cover is not flimsy, and covers your mattress properly, you are good to go. Make sure to secure the top with tape and cover any holes before storage.
- Storing Your Mattress Long-Term? Go Flat
While it is commonly prescribed to store a mattress upright, storing it flat is ideal for long-term storage. Lay a blanket or tarp for protection from the ground, then lay the mattress flat in the storage unit. Storing on top of flat furniture is okay as well.
- Make Sure Nothing is On Top
While it may be tempting to help preserve space, don’t place anything on top of your mattress. This can damage the springs and undo your previous protective measures.
- Before Using, Freshen Up
Give the mattress a good cleaning before using again. Baking soda is good for absorbing odors. Sprinkle it on both sides and use a vacuum to remove.
