Moving, selling or renting – there
are several reasons to have to carry a mattress. Although it is at first glance
more attractive for most people to decide on moving to a new mattress and leave
the old model to the bulky waste, this is not an option for many people,
especially with new or particularly expensive mattresses.
Transporting a mattress: what do you have to pay attention to?
If you want to transport a
mattress, the whole thing is usually as space-saving as possible take place.
After putting the mattress upright in front of the window to dry for a few days
to avoid fouling or mildew from being transported or stored, it may be
convenient to roll or bend the mattress – but be careful! Not all mattresses
can easily be kinked or rolled: All types of spring core and latex mattresses
should be better transported in their “natural” form, as otherwise
springs can move irretrievably or the latex can get cracks. All types of cold
fluff mattresses, however, can also be rolled or kinked.
Preparation: rolling and fixing
For the transport itself you should
have straps and sheets, foils or blankets available – besides, a second person
as an assistant is an advantage. Before transporting, foam and viscose pads
should be rolled up as tightly as possible and then tied tightly with tension
straps – Caution: Do not use ropes or painters’ crepe because the ropes can cut
the mattress and damage the cover while the painter’s crepe tears when it is
Protection: Foil, sheets or blankets are useful
If the mattress is rolled up, then
you can protect them from dust, dirt and other contaminants that may arise
during transport. It is allowed, what pleases: Sheets, which are pulled over
the mattress from both sides, are as sensible as painter foil, thick blankets
or even special mattress foils. This can be used to protect both rolled-up
mattresses and mattresses in their normal shape during transport.
Transportation: car, van or car roof
The rolled or folded cold fluff
mattresses can then easily be stowed in the car, while you can transport spring
core and visco models either standing in the van or lashed on the car roof.
