How to Store a Mattress

How to Store a Mattress
  1. First clean the mattress using upholstery cleaner, and then vacuum both sides.

 

  1. Invest in a plastic mattress cover to protect the mattress in storage. You can buy these at Store All for between $19.95 and $28.95. Secure the mattress cover with tape, and this will stop dust from getting into the fibers, even though the storage units are clean.

 

  1. If you are storing the mattress for a long period, store it flat in the storage unit, as the padding and coils can settle, and the mattress will never be the same. When storing on the ground of the storage unit, use pallets to elevate the mattress off of the ground, or store it on top of flat furniture (if available).

 

  1. Do not store anything on top of the mattress, as heavy items can damage the mattress material and may damage the coils. Gravity is not your friend.

 

  1. When the mattress arrives at its new home remove the plastic covering, sprinkle baking soda on both sides and allow it to absorb any odors, and then vacuum the mattress. Then let the mattress breathe for a few hours before you put sheets on it, and your mattress should be ready for you to enjoy.
