Inflatable beds are great! They can be used in a great variety of situations, including camping, providing an extra space for guests, vacations, beach outings, and more. It is important to know how to properly maintain your inflatable bed to ensure you get the Beds longest use from your purchase.
Properly maintaining your air bed is easy and only takes minutes at each use. You can provide proper maintenance by following these easy steps for setup, use, take down, transportation, and storage.
Before each use, check to make sure your inflatable bed is free of any leaks, tears, or punctures. If you suspect any leaks or notice any tears or punctures, make sure to properly patch them before using your bed. Once you have ensured there are no leaks, inflate your it to the recommended capacity. If your bed is under-inflated, it will cause discomfort to you or your guests during sleep. Under-inflating can also cause unnecessary strain on the seams when being used. On the other hand, you will want to make sure your air bed is not over-inflated. Over-inflation will cause seams to deteriorate more quickly and may damage the seams around the valve as well.
Once your bed is properly inflated, cover your it with a sheet or mattress protector. This will help prevent spills from staining the bed and will also help protect from dirt, dust or grime, particularly if using your bed while camping. Inflatable beds are tough and can withstand quite a bit of weight, but avoid jumping on the bed or flopping down onto the bed. Jumping on the bed, even if by a light-weight child, causes the air to rapidly push against the seams, causing them to tear. As another rule, always adhere to the weight restrictions provided in your owner's guide.
Note: If using your air bed outdoors, ensure that it is not near anything that will puncture the fabric. We also recommend placing a ground cloth beneath the bed to help prevent punctures or tears.
Take down is a quick and easy process with your inflatable bed, and ensuring proper take down will lengthen the life of your bed. After use, check the bed again for leaks, punctures, or tears. Being able to catch and repair leaks early will prevent your air bed from sustaining irreparable damage. Remove the protective sheet or mattress protector and wipe the bed down with a damp cloth. Allow the bed to dry and then properly fold the air bed according to instructions provided in the owner's guide. Cramming the bed into the stuff sack without properly folding it can cause strain on the seams and can wear down the fabric more quickly. Ensuring that your inflatable bed is properly folded and returned to its stuff sack will make it easier for transportation and storage.
When transporting your inflatable bed, always be sure that the bed is in the stuff sack. This helps to prevent damage to the fabric. Never transport the bed while inflated. If transporting in the trunk of a car or a trailer, ensure that the bed is away from anything that may tear or puncture the fabric. If transporting the air bed on the roof of a vehicle, ensure that it is securely Beds fastened and protected from any elements that may cause damage to the bed in transit.
Always store your inflatable bed in its stuff sack. For added protection, you may also place it in a plastic garbage bag. Store the bed away from any heat source and away from anything that may tear or puncture the bed. Never store the bed while inflated.
