If you're looking for a place to store your mattresses, Red Hills Storage is here to help. But before you store your mattress, it's important to take the proper steps to ensure it stays clean and undamaged. Here are some tips on how to properly store your mattress in self-storage.

Clean Your Mattress: Before storing your mattress, make sure it is completely clean and dry. Vacuum the surface to remove any dust or dirt and use a fabric cleaner to remove any stains. Make sure the mattress is completely dry before packing it away, as moisture can lead to mold or mildew.

Protect Your Mattress: Once your mattress is clean and dry, place it in a specialized mattress bag to protect it from dust and other environmental factors. These bags are made of breathable materials that allow air to circulate while keeping out dust and dirt.

Store Your Mattress Flat: When storing your mattress, always keep it flat. Storing a mattress on its side can cause it to warp or become misshapen over time. If you must store your mattress on its side, prop it up against a wall to prevent it from bending.

Avoid Heavy Items: When packing your storage unit, avoid stacking heavy items on top of your mattress. This can cause the mattress to compress, which can damage the springs and foam.

Elevate Your Mattress: It's a good idea to elevate your mattress off the ground by placing it on pallets or risers. This will help to keep it clean and dry and prevent damage from ground moisture.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your mattress stays clean and undamaged while in self-storage. When you're ready to store your mattress, choose Red Hills Storage for all your self-storage needs. Call us or check our available units online to get started today.
