Best Mattress Storage Bag
Reading Time: 2 minutes

If you think moving a mattress is as easy as simply loading it into the moving truck, it’s important to reconsider. People spend anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand dollars on their mattress. And when you think about it, we spend 1/3 of our lives on a mattress, so it makes sense. But, if you move your mattress incorrectly, it may not be around for the long haul. For example, one common mistake we see people make is not using a mattress bag when moving their mattress. So, why is a mattress bag important and which mattress bag should you choose? Read below!

Choosing the Best Mattress Storage Bag

A mattress bag will help to protect your mattress from any dust, dirt or moisture. Exposure to moisture or dirt can be detrimental to your mattress, as it can cause the springs to corrode or mold to form. A mattress bag can help to protect your mattress from being damaged by a rainy moving day, or dirt leftover on the inside of your moving truck.

The Best Mattress Storage Bag Tips to Keep Your Mattress Damage-Free

  1. Clean the mattress and box spring: First, remove the linens from the bed to clean the mattress and box spring. Vacuum the mattress to remove any hair, dust or dirt and then use upholstery cleaner if needed. If you use upholstery cleaner, give the mattress ample time to dry before putting it in the mattress storage bag.
  2. Choose the right mattress storage bag: When choosing the best mattress bag for you, it’s important to choose a bag that fits your mattress. When moving and storing a mattress, use two separate mattress storage bags.
  3. Place the mattress inside of a mattress storage bag: Next, slowly lift up the end of the mattress to push it inside of the mattress storage bag. A mattress and box spring are heavy, so it’s a good idea to have another person help with this.
  4. Ensure your mattress bag is storage friendly: If you plan on storing your mattress, it’s important the storage bag you choose allows the mattress to breathe. If moisture gets inside of the mattress bag, it can cause mold and mildew to form.
