When a customer chooses to place their items into storage it is reasonable to assume, they will want to use the items again in the future. This short guide will help you pack your mattress to ensure it is still is great condition when you start using it again.

Clean it prior to entry into storage

Leaving the mattress in an unclean state before storage is going to cause issues as it is stored. Stains may become permanent and moulds and fungus can grow. In order to tackle this, consider cleaning with the following:

  • Steam clean the mattress
  • Vacuum both sides of the mattress
  • Use upholstery cleaner which will kill moulds and fungus

Keep your mattress clean during moving and storage

Tightly and efficiently wrapping your mattress before it goes into storage will keep it dry and clean during transport and can also stop the development of moulds. We strongly recommend against loose covers or no covers when storing.

As mentioned above, thoroughly clean your mattress before you store it. Also thoroughly clean it once you take it back out of storage.

Use deodorizing spray or baking soda to freshen up your mattress

Before and after you put your mattress into storage, use deodorizing spray of baking soda to neutralize any odours and leave the mattress in a well ventilated space to air out before storing and before using again. Taking this approach will keep your mattress fresh and ready for use after your store.

Look for dry, cool storage

In order to avoid the development of fungus or mould, we advise you look for a storage unit with dry and cool temperatures. Here at Perfect Storage all our units are indoors and subsequently protected from damp and kept in cool conditions.

Keep your mattress flat

Finally, speak to your storage company about how your mattress will be stored. Most mattresses can be stored up right on their edge, but in very rare cases we may be requested to store a mattress flat because of its build quality. In either case, no items should be piled on it, as this can cause irreparable damage to the springiness of your mattress. Our team at Perfect Storage will work with you to plan your store to ensure this does not happen.
