Anyone who has owned a full sized mattress will know how cumbersome it can be to move one around. Whether you are moving your mattress to another room or out of the house completely, it is not a fun task to handle. Moving a mattress the correct way can save you a lot of time but most people do not know how to do that. Here are some tips on how to properly lift a mattress.
• Get help. If you can get some help from a neighbor, family member or friend, the moving process will be a lot faster and easier than trying to do it alone.
• When you are ready, make sure all of the sheets are off of the bed. If the mattress you are moving has handles, use those to move the mattress off of the bed and stand it on the side. If there are no handles, just push it up, making sure that there is someone on the other side to catch it.
• You will want to place the mattress on a plastic over, which will make it easier to slide. The plastic cover will also protect the mattress.
• Some may find it easier to tie a long rope around the mattress to make it easier to move. If you do not use the rope, get a firm grasp on one end the mattress and lift it with your knees. There should be someone else on the other end lifting at the same time that you do.
