A memory foam mattress is a great way to improve the quality of your sleep. Many professionals will give you a laundry list of benefits of using a memory foam mattress and how it can improve your sleep. Let's say you've recently purchased a memory foam mattress and are in the process of moving to a new home. You'll want to bring your mattress with you when you relocate.

You might feel overwhelmed by the prospect of moving a king-sized mattress to your new home. No, it's not something you can pack up and ship to your new house. What if, however, we told you that your memory foam mattress is so versatile that you can roll it up and take it with you wherever you go?

If you need to move or store a mattress for an extended period of time, you can do so by vacuum sealing it. Following the correct procedures will ensure that the mattress is not damaged. Properly sealing the bag and hose will ensure that no air is left in the system. Mattresses that have been vacuum-sealed should not be stored for longer than two to three weeks.

Mattress Re-Rolling Possible?

Whether you bought it online or in a store, when you took your mattress home, you probably noticed that it was neatly rolled up and stored in a box. It's tempting to simply roll up your mattress, put it back in its box, and be on your way when relocating.

A mattress can be rerolled with minimal effort. Initially, dump the linens and put your mattress directly on the floor. To begin rolling, enlist the aid of a companion by holding one end and setting off together. Using one hand, slide the packaging over the rolled mattress, and use the other to tighten the tie.

To begin rolling your mattress, it is helpful to have the original packaging on hand. It's important to roll your mattress with care and avoid putting too much pressure on it. It's easy to reroll a mattress, and doing so is a convenient way to transport it.

The Vacuum-Sealing of a Mattress

If you need to move a memory foam mattress but don't have a lot of room in your vehicle, a simple solution is to vacuum seal it. There are a few things to think about before you seal your mattress, such as its age, condition, and the tools you'll need to do the job. To successfully vacuum seal your mattress, you will need:

  • A plastic bag for a mattress
  • Duct Tape
  • Cinch buckles
  • Bag that can be compressed into a small space
  • Cleaner, Vacuum
  • The desired container for putting away your mattress

Having a companion or a friend along can ease the burden of this endeavor, so do what you can to get one. You should remove all bedding from your mattress except the protector once you're packed and ready to go.

Take your mattress bag, slide the mattress inside, and duct tape the ends to make sure it is completely enclosed in the vacuum. The next step is to take your vacuum bag and carefully cut it around the valve, leaving enough plastic to tape it down. Mattress bags can have their valves inserted into a matching hole by cutting the hole to the correct size. Tape this down and connect the vacuum hose. Turn on the vacuum and watch as the air is removed.

As the vacuum is still running, begin rolling the mattress to remove any remaining air. Ratchet straps and padding will keep the rolled mattress from creasing while transporting it. A mattress should be packed in a box while lying flat. Now your mattress is ready for transport or storage.

The lifespan of a mattress that has been vacuum-sealed is investigated.

Vacuum-sealed memory foam mattresses only have a few months before they permanently lose their shape. The least amount of damage can be done to your mattress if you leave it packed for no more than two to three weeks.

Any mattress, new or old, should not be vacuum-sealed for more than a few weeks at a time because doing so can cause the mattress to lose its shape and become uneven. Because memory foam mattresses are so malleable, they begin to deform after being compressed for an extended period of time.

You should wait at least the suggested three months before opening your mattress, but no more than two. If you are unsure how long your mattress can remain sealed, you can always give the company a call and ask.

Does Mattress Seam Sealing Cause Any Damage?

Vacuum sealing a mattress at home is a simple process, but it's possible to cause damage if you're not careful. The difference between ruining your mattress and successfully sealing it can come down to a few details. By always bearing these in mind, you will guarantee your success without risk.

You should give serious consideration to the age of your mattress. Rolling it up or trying to seal it could cause it damage if you've had it for more than seven years. Mattresses with obvious tears or cracks shouldn't be vacuum sealed because doing so can cause the tears to spread. Finally, you should not try to vacuum seal a mattress that is already sagging or losing its shape.

Besides these, if you don't follow the directions, you can permanently damage your mattress by vacuum sealing and then rolling it. This is because the shape of the memory foam can be permanently altered by this process. Keep in mind that you should never vacuum seal a spring mattress, and that doing so will irreparably damage the coils, but memory foam mattresses are an exception.

Options for Mattress Storage

There are plenty of options for storing or transporting your mattress if you decide that vacuum sealing isn't for you. You may not be interested in vacuum sealing because you are concerned about ruining your mattress or because you would rather not deal with the hassle of vacuum sealing the mattress on your own.

A mattress bag, available cheaply and conveniently online and in hardware stores, can be used to encase and transport your bed. You can avoid the hassle of rolling it up and the potential harm that could result. Place the mattress, still in its wrappings, in a closet or storage room.

Remember that too much moisture can ruin the mattress and invite bacteria into it, so store it in a dry, temperature-controlled area. You can prevent indentations in the mattress by laying it flat when storing it and not putting anything on top of it.

Discrepancies and Conclusions

In order to get the best night's rest possible, a memory foam mattress is a must-have. They last for quite some time and give your spine a lot of support while you're sleeping. Whether you're actually moving or just want to keep your mattress out of the way for a while, you can roll it up or vacuum seal it to make it more compact.

Rolling up a mattress is a simple task that only requires two people and no special equipment. If you want to vacuum seal with ease and efficiency at home, you'll need to invest in a few tools and put in a little bit of preparation. Sealing is a convenient way to transport or store your memory foam mattress, but it can cause damage to the mattress if done incorrectly. Sealing and rolling is not recommended for old or damaged mattresses.

Rolling a spring mattress can cause the coils to become deformed, so it's best to avoid doing that as well. Using a mattress bag is a great alternative to vacuum sealing if you're worried about damaging your mattress during storage or transportation.
