Tips for Keeping Mattress in A Self-Storage Unit

Good quality mattresses can be expensive. There will likely be a time when you find the need to store your mattress away. Whether you are moving houses, doing a renovation, or temporary downsizing, learn how to keep your mattress in the best state with TOPBOX Storage.

Easy Steps to Store Mattress in A Storage Unit

  • Clean The Mattress

The first step in taking care of your mattress before storing it is to clean it thoroughly. The best way to sparingly clean your mattress is by vacuuming it on both sides. You can also apply some baking soda and let sit for a while to absorb any lingering odors. Additionally, let your mattress air for a bit before wrapping it and putting it in a storage unit.

  • Cover The Mattress with Plastic Wrapper

Keeping your mattress covered is essential as it protects against not only dirt and dust, but also moisture. Use thick, durable plastic sheets and tape them down securely on your mattress for the extra protection. Remember to air the mattress before you wrap it, to ensure no moisture is trapped inside before you keep them in a storage unit.

  • Store Your Mattress Flat

Although it is best to go vertical when storing other items in a self-storage unit, you may need to keep your mattress flat. Mattresses need to be stored flat to prevent the sides’ coils and inner-workings from settling out of their proper position. Mattresses need to be held on a flat surface to avoid getting saggy.

  • Keep Everything Else Off The Mattress

Remember not to put anything on top of your mattress. Heavy objects can damage the springs and create more wear to the exterior. Instead, put the mattress on top of everything else, but be sure the supports below are stable and flat.

  • Let It Breathe Before Use

Regardless of how long you have had your mattress in storage, always air it out well before use. If possible, allow it to sit in the sun sufficiently for the UV rays to kill off any lingering allergens and help refresh the material. You can also sprinkle some baking soda and clean it with a vacuum.
