What is a vacuum-packed rolled mattress?
At Mattressman, we stock a variety of rolled-up mattresses that have been vacuum packed for condensed, easily transportable delivery. The rolled mattress will arrive in a box small enough to pick up and easily manoeuvre around your home.
How is a rolled-up mattress vacuum-packed?
In order to get the mattress in a state to be rolled up, it first has to be flattened by a compression machine. It is then tightly rolled up and placed in plastic packaging. This is then vacuum packed by removing the air and heat sealing, so there's no way the rolled mattress can begin to unravel whilst in the packaging. Not only does this a compact package, but it also makes for easy transportation too. A rolled-up mattress is fantastic for a small home or a house where it may be awkward to move a full-size mattress around. When it comes to removing it from the vacuum packing, ensure you do so in the desired room where you want the mattress to be.
What kinds of rolled-up mattresses can be delivered rolled?
At Mattressman, our range of rolled-up mattresses includes an array of different mattress compositions and mattress firmnesses. From pocket sprung mattresses to open coil, memory foam mattresses, reflex foam, hybrid and Geltex mattresses, almost every kind of mattress type is able to be rolled up and delivered in a box. The same can almost be said for mattress firmnesses, including soft, medium, medium firm and firm mattresses. The only mattress tension that cannot be rolled up is an extra firm option, and this is simply because the springs are so rigid that the compression process can damage the spring unit.
For an easy roll-up mattress, memory foam mattresses have the right composition to easy be compressed and vacuum-packed. Whilst pocket sprung options are harder to be rolled up mattresses, there are many brands that have done this.
How long should I leave my mattress when I've unpackaged it?
The answer to this depends on the brand of rolled mattress, however, a general rule is that the mattress will be good after 4 hours, but will be perfect by 24 hours. Vacuum packed mattresses will return to their original full shape 24 hours after unpackaging and are ready to provide a great night's sleep. Not only is it easier to get your new mattress to your bed frame of choice, but you will also have a comfortable mattress in only a few hours.
What are the other benefits of rolled mattresses?
Because a rolled-up mattress takes up less space, it means delivery drivers can fit more in their vans and do fewer journeys, lowering their carbon footprint.
