Step 1. Inspect your mattress carefully for any signs of infestations and make sure it is clean and completely dry (consider placing it in a spot with direct sunlight for a few hours before packing it for storage, just in case).
Step 2. Place the mattress in a specialized mattress storage bag that fits it perfectly (the durable mattress bags provide maximum protection against dirt, dust, moisture and pests). Seal the plastic protector’s ends with quality packing tape.
Consider using vacuum bags to save some space when storing comforters, duvets, linens, and other bedding items.
