Can storage units have bed bugs?

Yes, this is because bed bugs can migrate from different items such as backpacks and clothing so for the bed bugs to reach storage units through clothing should be a high concern because everyone wears clothes so the bed bugs can be easily transmitted and move around into other storage units that people go into or in items that people store inside of a storage unit.

Are mattresses safe in a storage unit?

Yes, mattresses can be safe inside of a storage unit if the climate for the storage unit is controlled and sanitized. This way you will not have to worry about your mattress decomposing inside of the storage unit. If it were not controlled the structure of your mattress will be lost and you would lose all the comfort and support your mattress would have given you. Make sure to wrap up the mattress before it goes into the storage unit. This is to make sure that the mattress does not get any dust, debris, or bacteria on it while it is in the storage unit, to prevent other items in the storage unit from doing damage to the mattress.

How do you store a bed frame in a storage unit?

To make transporting the bed frame into the storage unit simpler, start be deconstructing the bed frame into its smaller pieces so that the bed frame does not collapse under its own weight. Also place the larger pieces into a box to make sure that they do not become damaged over time. For the smaller items, namely the bolts and screws that come with the bed frame should be put into a small bag or a small box to make sure that they do not become lost when they are needed again to rebuild the bed frame.

Does mattress need to breathe?

Yes, your mattress does need to breathe or aired out in other words to get rid of all the sweat and dampness from the mattress. This is to ensure that mould does not start to grow and build up from years of neglecting to do this. Letting your mattress breathe will also let it feel lighter and softer since the sweat and moisture is not longer there.
