Questions on Proper Storage for Quadraflex Hybrid Mattress (Flexus Comfort) 13 Jun 2021 11:12 #1

Hello! I am new to this forum, and am not entirely sure who to ask, or even if there is a best location to post this question, so I apologize in advance!

I recently purchased the Quadraflex Hybrid Mattress from Flexus Comfort within the last 10 months, and have been enjoying it immensely. I never realized, however, how heavy it would be! That being said, I will need to put the mattress (pocket coil, talalay layer) and the base into storage. Not sure if it's temp controlled or not -- so I wanted to ask if anyone could advise me on the following questions:

1. When the mattress was first delivered, it was sent over in a vacuum sealed/rolled form. I'm assuming the latex talalay layer came rolled seperately from the pocket coil part of the mattress (which I do recall being rolled up). If I am storing it, should I attempt to do so in the same way they were delivered?
2. Is there a 'best' way to move these to storage? Rolling, trolley, dragging (joking about the last one)....
3. Is there a difference in length of time these can be stored if it's stored in a temp controlled unit vs non-temp controlled unit?
4. I reached out to a '"Henry" from Flexus, and he advised the following:
- Springs/Pocket coil can be laid on its side, covered in plastic for a couple months without issue
- The latex layer should be stored flat, covered in plastic -- if compressed, should not exceed 14 days.

Could someone please advise and/or confirm if the information he provided is accurate? I don't want to mess up the coils, nor the quality of the latex layer. This will help me to understand how long I can keep these in storage before the quality of the mattress/latex starts to experience any type of issues.

Thank you very much!

Hey scrg51,

Welcome to The Mattress Underground :) ! Nice to meet you and thanks for your question.

Hello! I am new to this forum, and am not entirely sure who to ask, or even if there is a best location to post this question, so I apologize in advance!

I recently purchased the Quadraflex Hybrid Mattress from Flexus Comfort within the last 10 months, and have been enjoying it immensely. I never realized, however, how heavy it would be!


Congrats on your new mattress purchase from expert trusted member Flexus Comfort :) ! I regard them highly for their knowledge and experience, both in the latex category, as well as Double Sided Mattress category. FC has an excellent customer support team for helping with your post-sale needs too. Indeed; hybrid mattresses including latex layers can be quiet heavy, especially when relocating to another part of your home or elsewhere that involves physically breaking down and resetting the entire bed.

That being said, I will need to put the mattress (pocket coil, talalay layer) and the base into storage. Not sure if it's temp controlled or not -- so I wanted to ask if anyone could advise me on the following questions:

1. When the mattress was first delivered, it was sent over in a vacuum sealed/rolled form. I'm assuming the latex talalay layer came rolled seperately from the pocket coil part of the mattress (which I do recall being rolled up). If I am storing it, should I attempt to do so in the same way they were delivered?


What size mattress did you go with? How long do you plan to store your mattress? Regarding the mattress's original compressed shipping state, there is no straight forward way to repack the mattress in a similar manner to how it arrived. To make moving the latex layer easier, it can be folded and vacuum sealed using moving bags found at rental moving equipment; however, vacuum sealing of latex is not recommended for long periods of time as it may not return to its optimal shape afterwards.

2. Is there a 'best' way to move these to storage? Rolling, trolley, dragging (joking about the last one)....


That depends; will you have a moving company deliver your mattress to the storage facility along with other furniture? Will friends be helping out instead? A mover can handle the mattress differently than some neighbors and a pickup truck. You can roll the latex layer, secure it in plastic and bind it with packing tape for transport, the mattress can covered in plastic and sealed with packing tape as well, and can travel on its side. If you plan to store the mattress for any length of time, you'll need to unroll the latex layer and repackage it again so that it can be stored flat.

3. Is there a difference in length of time these can be stored if it's stored in a temp controlled unit vs non-temp controlled unit?


Generally speaking, a latex hybrid mattress can be stored for 3 or so months; however, I would verify that storage time length with Flexus Comfort, as they know their components and product design better than anyone else. There should be no problem whether your storage unit is temperature-controlled or not, but you could ask FC if a temperature-controlled environment provides for a longer storage period.

4. I reached out to a '"Henry" from Flexus, and he advised the following:
- Springs/Pocket coil can be laid on its side, covered in plastic for a couple months without issue
- The latex layer should be stored flat, covered in plastic -- if compressed, should not exceed 14 days.
Could someone please advise and/or confirm if the information he provided is accurate? I don't want to mess up the coils, nor the quality of the latex layer. This will help me to understand how long I can keep these in storage before the quality of the mattress/latex starts to experience any type of issues.


"Henry" is the owner of Flexus Comfort, so you can absolutely trust his counsel with regard to your questions. It seems as though you have posed these questions to him and he has responded appropriately. Good luck with your move and let us know how your Quadra-Flex Hybrid enjoyed its storage and travelling experience ;) .

Thanks,
