How to store a mattress properly


Moving will require a lot of organizing and preparation. You will have to worry about the smallest details and about big and bulky items that need relocation. Luckily, by hiring U.Santini Moving & Storage Brooklyn you can opt for any moving service you require. Especially if you have low or no experience with relocation. Protecting your items during this process is very important. That is why today we talk about ways to store a mattress properly. By doing so, you will reduce the chances of it damaging other items both in transit or in storage.

What do you need to store a mattress properly?

There is so much more than simply moving your items to a new location when it comes to relocation. Properly preparing your items for the move is one of the key factors in this scenario. Not only will it help you prevent potential damage but it will also preserve the condition of said items. Regardless if you are packing your mattress for public storage New York or for a moving truck, you need to pay attention.

As the mattress is a place where you sleep it is important that you preserve its current condition throughout the relocation or storing period
  • Acquire a form of protective material for the mattress
  • You will need tapes or ropes
  • Find something to wrap the mattress in
  • Make sure that the mattress is static and not moving around

First, fold your mattress

The first thing you want to do when you want to store a mattress properly is to fold it in a circle or square. Usually, when you get mattresses they arrive in one of those two forms. This is done so the mattress can easily fit inside the van or truck and save some space. If you want, you can do this just to see what the best solution for this issue is. Moreover, this will help you utilize the space you have in the best way possible. More importantly, this will help you fit the mattress into the mattress bag or cover.

Next, ensure that the mattress is static and safe

The next thing you want to do when you want to store a mattress properly is to wrap it in protective material. Now, regardless if you have the cover or not, we advise wrapping another layer around it. You can use cardboard cutouts, bubble wrap or simple foil.

Using rope is the easiest way to ensure the mattress does not unfold but you will have to protect the mattress from it

This is done so you can easily wrap the tape around the mattress or tie it with ropes. The tape and ropes will help the mattress remain folded at all times and protective layers will prevent damaging them with ropes or tapes. That way, when affordable movers Brooklyn arrive, your mattress will be ready for the relocation.

Finally, store your mattress properly in a storage unit with proper conditions

One thing you should know about mattresses is that they need to “breathe”. They often require a constant flow of air through them in order to remain fresh. To do so, you can always opt for a climate-controlled storage unit. More importantly, as you arrive, make sure you unfold the mattress and create a way for air to get through it. If your mattress remains folded and wrapped, you will probably find it moldy and dirty.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
