How does the Mattress Vacuum Bag work?
This question is an excellent one, and in this section, we'll explain in detail how the vacuum bag works.
Step 1: Simply, it's an easy process to take your mattress firmly from the mattress stand and heave it against a surrounding wall or have a friend or family member help you do this. In many cases, our users have been able to shift the mattress on their own and very quickly too.
Step 2: You must remember to drag or carry your mattress to an open space in your home. Usually, the living room should have sufficient space. You can then go ahead and lay the mattress flat on the floor, ensuring it is firmly in place.
Step 3: Bring your mattress to the opening of the mattress bag and slide it in. You can do this with a small mattress on your own. Yet, for more massive beds, you may need some help. So don't be shy to ask a family member or friend to assist you.
Step 4: Once the mattress is inside your vacuum bag, you're almost ready to start sealing the bag and compressing it for the best results.
Step 5: You can do this by sealing the bag on both ends manually, to ensure no air gets in. This process will ensure that it's ready for the vacuum stage. You then need to bring over your vacuum cleaner and insert it into the prepared opening on the vacuum bag. This opening will be visible to you.
Step 6: For this step, you can use pretty much any standard vacuum cleaner to remove the air from the bag. You can then switch on the vacuum and watch as it sucks out the air and quickly seals your mattress. You'll notice the compressed version within the next 10-15 minutes.
Step 7: The mattress will then shrink to 1/8th of its original size, and you would not need to do any of the exhausting aspects of dealing with moving vans or carrying your large mattress down a flight of stairs.
Step 8: Once compressed, your mattress is ready to be rolled up tightly and tied to keep it from unrolling during transportation. You can use a rope available around the house for this step and firmly tie the rope. Yet you have to make sure that you can also untie the line when your mattress arrives at its next destination.
Step 9: It's time to get your compressed mattress to the car. Generally, it will be much lighter so you can quickly take it to your vehicle, and it should fit neatly into the back seat of a sedan. Alternatively, you could push the backseat forward. Then you can slide the rolled-up mattress half in the trunk and a half in the backseat. There are many options at this step.
And that's how you can compress your mattress with your specifically designed vacuum bags and have it moved in 10-15 minutes. Alternatively, you can also store your mattress for later use.

As with most items, it's always good to know the details to ensure optimal use and satisfaction with your product.
We've listed two of these considerations for you below.
- You should not use a sharp object to open up the sealed mattress to avoid unnecessary damage.
- Refrain from dragging the compressed mattress after you vacuum the bag, as it will distress the plastic bag and ultimately damage your mattress inside.
Moving can be a challenging affair, and often your mattress feels the impact the most. Dust builds up, and it's hard to transport.
