If you’ve ever moved a mattress, you know that it can be quite a chore. Between the physical difficulty of moving such a large piece of furniture down a stairwell and the challenge of storing it, you could use a helping hand.

That’s why ClearHome has prepared this guide to help you better understand how to store a mattress, how to store a mattress topper, and other helpful tips for keeping your sleep haven happy and healthy—either at home or tucked away in a storage unit. Whether you’re facing a temporary relocation or decluttering your bedroom, this guide will equip you with the knowledge and practical tips to ensure your mattress slumbers peacefully until its next deployment.

Preparing Your Mattress for Storage

Before you stow away your mattress, it’s crucial to prepare it properly:

  1. Begin by cleaning the mattress thoroughly to ensure it’s free of dust, dirt, and any spills.
  2. Use a gentle upholstery cleaner for stains, and allow the mattress to air dry completely.
  3. Once clean, cover it with a quality mattress protector, such as ClearHome’s mattress covers, available in twin, full, queen, and king sizes.

Choosing the Right Storage Location

Selecting an appropriate storage space is key to preserving your mattress. Whether you’re relying on a storage unit during a move or seeking a space to declutter your home, the selection of the right storage locale plays a crucial role. Look for units that protect against extreme temperatures, as your mattress deserves a storage setting that helps it remain in good condition.

Climate-Controlled Storage To Preserve Your Mattress

Consider a storage unit with climate control to maintain a stable environment for your mattress. Without climate control, your mattress is vulnerable to extreme temperatures in the summer and winter, risking damage from mold, mildew, and warping. ClearHome’s innovative facilities offer climate-controlled storage options, so you can feel good about storing your belongings, including your mattresses.

Other items that benefit from climate control include:

  • Leather products
  • Wooden furniture
  • Vinyl records
  • Art and photographs
  • Paper files

Drive-Up Access Makes Moving Easy

Once you’ve found the right storage environment, it’s time to break down how to store a mattress in a storage unit. When choosing a storage unit, you should always consider the convenience of drive-up access. With the ability to park your car right outside your unit’s door, ClearHome’s drive-up access storage units make it a breeze to load and unload your mattress.

This feature is especially beneficial during the moving process. Drive-up access eliminates the need to navigate through hallways and elevators, so you can simplify the task of transporting your mattress to and from your storage unit.

Wrapping It Up: ClearHome’s Mattress Covers and Mattress Storage

Make sure your mattress stays ready for use all yearlong with your ClearHome storage unit. We highly recommend you take advantage of our protective mattress covers, which are available for purchase in a wide range of sizes. This small investment could save your mattress from total replacement due to water, dirt, and dust. Explore our storage options to find the right storage unit for you, and rest easy knowing your mattress is secured and out of the way.
