Keeping Your Kids Happy During Your Move

Don't Lose Sleep Over Moving Your Mattress

ایلیا سلطانی نژاد

Moving is always a hassle, even with the best help and moving supplies out there. Making certain that your prized possessions get where they need to go is obviously your top priority. One of the most important items you'll be moving is your mattress. Although people tend to just toss their extra firm or gel-topped models around during a move, that's a good way to wreck your sleep for the indefinite future. When you move your mattress and box springs, you need to follow a careful procedure.

Coverings

Your mattress is too expensive and important to cover improperly for a move. You may have seen a naked mattress being hauled down the street in the back of the truck, but that method is always a terrible idea. You can easily stain your mattress, which can invalidate the warranty on many models. In addition, you do not want dust and grime accumulating inside your mattress. Don't just leave the sheets on it. You need to cover it with plastic, even if you have a regular mattress cover. Often, mattress stores will let you have some of the plastic packaging that their stock mattresses came in. Don't be afraid to ask. If necessary, you can purchase an inexpensive cover from a discount store. Don't forget to get one for your box spring as well.

Handling

A good mattress is worth its weight in gold; fortunately, it's not that heavy. However, today's mattresses can be up to twenty inches thick and filled with a variety of coils and foams. Even trying to load a twin mattress yourself can be difficult because it is heavy and unwieldy. If you are moving a queen or king mattress, you will need at least one other person. Although mattresses can be bent, you don't want to contort them too much or you can damage the coils and displace the foam. A queen size box spring may be the bigger challenge. Although it is quite light, a queen box is rigid and difficult to maneuver. If possible, let the professionals handle the mattress and the box.

You can stand to lose some items, but ruining a comfortable mattress is a real problem. Buying a new mattress is expensive, and you may not find one that works as well for you as your current model. Take great care when you are moving to protect your mattress and box so your first night at your new home will be a good one.
