How To Move A Mattress?
Any mattress is not of the size of the greatest drone ever so it’s not an easy task to move it. The answer to the question above always depends on the type and size of the product that you have. Where are you going to move it? Is it a long distance move? Are you going to ask the moving company to assist you with it? All these factors influence the way you need to follow with in order to safely transport your bed.
The following are some of the mattresses that we would be commonly used in our homes, so we’ve listed the best ways that will help you to move your mattress.
This type of mattress is difficult to move, as it has hard inner steel springs wrapped around with foam, which are stitched over with fabric. If you are to move a mattress made with innersprings and it is used on a single bed, for instance by one of your children, the task may be somewhat easy. On the contrary, takes the mattress in your bedroom which could be either a King or Queen size and an innerspring mattress of such magnitude would need a moving company to help you out.
It could be heavy, cannot be bent or folded and would need two very strong adults to carry it from the bedroom to the transport truck and then relocate back in the place you’ll need.
If you seek the help of a moving company they will first remove all the linen and pillows on the bed and pack them separately in either cloth or polythene. The moving company will then wrap the innerspring mattress with thick polythene to ensure it will not be damaged during the transit. If you employ a reputed moving company they should be well equipped and experienced besides are knowledgeable, as to how to move such large innerspring mattresses.
After carefully wrapping it they would encase your mattress either in a wooden or plastic pallet and make doubly sure that no damage will occur during transit. The pallet will glide into the truck and will be transported carefully to the new location without any damage. Hence the next time you’ll plan to move home, call a professional moving company and let them help you out. You will be able to save a few dollars by employing a moving guy in your locality but you could be sorry later if you do not bring in a reputed moving company.
Memory Foam Mattress
To move a mattress made of memory foam will not be a complicated task as it can be easily bent into two and it will easily straighten back once you let it go. A memory foam mattress would not be very heavy like the innerspring mattress, thus it can be easily pushed into a transport truck. It would be your prerogative to ensure that it does not catch dirt whilst in transit and for that, it would be advisable to wrap it in polythene prior to moving. Employing a moving company will help you a lot, as they will move most of your household stuff, including foam mattress.
Air Bed Mattress
It is very easy to move the mattress. You can easily deflate the air and if you have the original packing in your storeroom just pack it back and move the mattress. Just because it will be an easy way to move a mattress does not make it a comfortable mattress to sleep in. It would be good to offer it to overnight visitors or to lie down on the porch just for relaxation.
Water Bed Mattress
This is another easy to move mattress where you will need to drain all the water out and pack it up and transport it if your vehicle accommodates it. Again though it is an easy way to move a mattress, sleeping in one all through your life would not be advisable, as you may suffer from back pain, neck pain, etc.
Latex Foam Mattress
A large latex foam mattress is a bit difficult to bend into two but it is very much lighter than an innerspring mattress and it is easy to move the mattress. Two adults could easily carry and place it in a truck or it could be bent into a “U” tied up with a cord and placed in a small truck, which makes it an easy way to move a mattress.
A latex foam mattress is good to sleep on but as it does not pass air through and is not efficient in ventilation hence you could feel hot and stuffy. This would be much noticeable if the weather is also hot and humid and you won’t have the air-conditioner in your room.
This is the most preferable of all the mattresses. It can be rolled up and shoved in any way and anywhere as it is very light and also very flexible. To move a mattress made of polypropylene will be the easiest task, but sleeping on it will not be a good long-term decision (as it can spoil your back).
It is too soft and your body will sink in, and that will not be a very good way of spending one-third of your life in one. Hence you need to select the best mattress to sleep in, as you deserve to be treated well because it is sleep which we all look forward to after a heavy day’s work.
There are different types of mattress. In order to move your mattress, you need to know what size, weight, and type it is. Hope this article will help you a lot and make your move easier!
