Bed Stored in Garage for 5 Years 02 Sep 2017 15:01 #1

I have a garage that I stored in a garage for 5 years without a cover and was wondering if it was still okay to use it? The garage had some moles in it at one point and while they didn't chew through the bed there is a spot on it that looks like a water stain but I am not sure if they urinated on it or not. There was a chair in the garage that they had used as a bathroom. Also, the bed has been stored stood up instead of flat on the ground. It was on top of a tarp.

Is this bed still good to use?

Hi GarageBed,

I would have no idea what things your mattress might have been exposed to having been in a garage over 5 years, but the foams used in a mattress are open-cell and can act as “passive air filtration units”, so personally, I would have a concern with what things may have been “absorbed” by an uncovered mattress in a typical garage environment over time.
