Gather your supplies
If you’re planning to move your mattress, you’ll need to gather a few supplies first. You’ll need a mattress bag to protect your mattress during the move. If you have a memory foam or foam mattress, you’ll also need to secure the mattress with moving straps. And if you’re moving a king-size mattress, you’ll need to rent a moving truck or hire professional movers.
Here’s what you’ll need to do to move your mattress:
1. First, clear a path from your bedroom to the door. This will make it easier to move your mattress.
2. Place the mattress on its side and carry it to the door.
3. If you have a mattress bag, secure the mattress in the bag.
4. If you’re moving a king-size mattress, you’ll need to rent a moving truck or hire professional movers.
5. When you get to your new home, place the mattress on top of the bed frame.
Prepare your mattress
1. First, you need to clear a path from your bedroom door to the front door or wherever else you’re taking the mattress. Remove any obstacles in the way so you have a clear path to walk the mattress through.
2. If you have a memory foam mattress, be sure to roll it up tightly so it doesn’t get damaged while moving it.
3. To move the mattress, start by tilting it up so it’s vertical. Then, grab hold of one side and start walking it slowly towards the door.
4. If you need to take the mattress down a flight of stairs, be extra careful. You may want to enlist the help of a friend or family member to avoid any accidents.
5. Once you get the mattress to the top of the pickup truck or wherever you’re moving it, be sure to secure it in place so it doesn’t move around during transport.
Lift and move your mattress
If you need to move your mattress, there are a few things you can do to make the process easier. First, if the mattress is too heavy to lift on your own, ask a friend or family member to help you. Second, if possible, try to move the mattress on a dolly or other type of flat surface. This will make it easier to maneuver and will help protect the mattress from damage. Third, when lifting the mattress, be sure to use your legs, not your back, to avoid injury. Fourth, when moving the mattress, take care not to bump it into walls or furniture, as this could damage the mattress or the items around it. Finally, once you have moved the mattress to its new location, be sure to inspect it for any damage that may have occurred during the move.
If your mattress is vacuumable, start by vacuuming the top and sides of the mattress with the upholstery attachment. If it’s not vacuumable, begin by spot cleaning any stains with a cleaner that’s appropriate for your mattress material. To clean the entire mattress surface, use a rented upholstery cleaner or hire a professional.
To remove dust mites, which can trigger allergies and worsen asthma, wash your mattress cover in hot water every week and vacuum the mattress weekly. You can also buy a dust-mite-proof mattress cover.
If you have bedbugs, you’ll need to call a professional.
