Whether you have upgraded to a new bedroom set or you have accumulated too many beds for your home you can easily store your mattress and bedframe in a storage unit at Spare Space Storage in Springville. To help you with the process of preparing your mattress and bedframe for storage see the tips below.
Before placing your items in storage you will want to make sure everything is thoroughly cleaned. The easiest way to clean a mattress is to vacuum it on both sides to remove as much dirt and dust as you can. Follow up by using an upholstery cleaner. To properly clean your bedroom you can just use soap and water to remove any dirt or dust. Make sure everything is completely dry before placing it in your storage unit.
To make the move from your home to your storage unit easier you will want to disassemble your bedframe as much as you can. Make sure you keep track of all of the parts and take note of where they belong. The easiest way to do this is to take pictures of where each screw, nut, and bolt belongs before removing it. Place all the small parts of the bedframe in a plastic bag and attach it to the bedframe itself so you don’t end up misplacing vital parts.
While your mattress and bedframe is in storage you will want to take the proper precautions in protecting them from dust or moisture. High quality mattress bags can be purchased fairly cheaply. Make sure there are no rips or tears in the mattress bag. To cover and protect your bedframe you can use sheets or drop cloths. Avoid using plastic covers. These tend to trap moisture and cause a buildup of mildew.
When placing your mattress in storage you will want to make sure you have enough space to lay it flat. Placing it in your storage unit on its side can damage the inner workings of your mattress and warp it. Elevate the mattress up o the floor of the storage units by using pallets or a tarp. Place your bedframe in a place that will keep it from falling or getting damaged.
