Steps to Store Your Mattress
- Find a Cool, Dry Place Away from Pets and Sharp Objects: Thankfully our down town Toronto storage units are temperature controlled. 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 your 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.
- Long Term Storage? 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.
