How to Store a Mattress and Box Spring Like A Pro: Tips from the Experts


A mattress being moved into a storage unitA good night’s rest can make all the difference in the world. What doesn’t help? Sleeping on a lumpy mattress that wasn’t stored correctly. Here’s how to store mattress the right way:

  1. Disassemble the Bed
  2. Clean the mattress
  3. Protect the mattress
  4. Choose the right spot

Of course, there’s a lot more to storing a mattress than you might think. Keep reading for the full story, and we’ll show you how to protect your bed and your beauty rest.

1. Disassemble the Bed Frame

A bed frame will be much easier to move if it is disassembled. Remove all of the screws, nuts and bolts and store them in a plastic bag. Tape the plastic bag to the headboard for safe keeping during your move.

2. Clean the Mattress

Over time, dust and debris can work its way into the fabric of your mattress. So, use a mild cleaner, such as an upholstery cleaner, to remove as much of this as possible. Here are two of the top-rated upholstery cleaners to use:

• Lysol
• Arm & Hammer Baking Soda

Once the mattress has been cleaned, vacuum both sides to remove any leftover dirt, dust or hair.

3. Protect the Mattress

When moving and storing a mattress, it is important to utilize a mattress cover. A mattress cover will help to protect your mattress from dust, dirt and moisture during the move and while it is in storage.

4. Choose the Right Spot

Avoid keeping your mattress in any location that is damp. This means that the basement, attic and garage are not good storage locations for your mattress. In order to protect the springs and frame of your mattress during storage, store it flat. If you store it on its side, springs can shift and become warped. Never place items on top of your mattress while it is in storage. Overtime, the weight of those items can damage the springs.

How to Store a Box Spring

A box spring should be stored in a similar fashion as a mattress. Use a mattress cover to protect it during the move and while in storage. Avoid placing items on top of the box springs while it is being stored.
