How to Keep an Air Mattress Bed Portable in Good Condition

The air mattress bed portable is not often used except during summer and kept in storage in the attic for the most part of the year. It is used normally only for the family outings in the summer months. This long storage cause many problems when it is again taken out for the family summer outing, unless you make regular check ups on it when it is not in use.

Preserve the usefulness of the air mattress bed portable, by conducting at least a monthly inspection and check up of its condition. Since it is a rubber-made air mattress, it would be prudent for you to inflate it at least once a month, so you can check if leaks have developed during the time of the storage. An air mattress that leaks and cannot hold air at the time of use can be most problematic, especially when you are already out in the field with the family. You will be bothered no end if a kid of yours has a leaking air mattress when he wants to use it.

A rubber-made air mattress bed tends to have molds develop within the folded parts and the molds sometimes are the cause why the leak develops. Some insects also might have something to do with the leaks developing while the mattress is stored in the dark attic.

Since you will need to inflate regularly the air mattress in camping and the other inflatable gear as you check them up, it will be good for you to have a portable air pump, to facilitate the filling up of the air for the mattresses. When you have filled the air mattress bed portable with air, try to submerge it in your pool and see if there are air bubbles coming up from any point in the mattress. The source of the air bubbles are the air leaks that you can detect because of the air bubbles. Other wise if you do not submerge it in water you would not have noticed the very small leaks.

After you have marked the points that are leaking in the air mattress bed portable, take it out dry it thoroughly in the sun. Be sure it is dry since you will be using some rubber sealant materials that may not stick effectively on a wet surface. You can repair the leaks without any problem with the rubber sealant, provided you follow strictly the application procedures prescribed in the product’s use.

After you have done the repairs, you may want to do a second testing by filling up the air mattress bed portable again with air and submerge it in the water for the second time. This should confirm the effectiveness of the repairs you have done, otherwise if there are still air bubbles coming up, you have to do a repeat of the procedure you just did for the unchecked air leak, this time taking more care that the leak is finally sealed effectively.

These maintenance activities needed during the months of non-use of the air mattress bed portable and the other inflatable gear that you have in your attic may sound tedious, but you have to do it, so you can be sure they are ready for use anytime.

Air Beds For Camping

Going out regularly with your kids in outdoor camping is one sure way you can bond with your children, something that some parents just do not care about much. Bonding with the kids makes you closer as one family and this is best done with you all staying under just one family tent during the camp out, sleeping on the air beds for camping.

Every year you should not fail to go out at least for a day or two on your usual camp out with the kids. They have been awaiting this activity during their school days, and they would be disappointed so much, if you skip even just one summer your outdoor camping. Now that summer is ending, you have only a limited time left to fulfill your promise to the kids of this year’s camp out. Have them prepare the Air mattress in camping; you are leaving before the weekend for the camping grounds albeit it is a bit late in the season.

Without any TV set to keep the kids busied in the evening at the summer camp, you can go back to the old-fashioned story telling sessions of past generations, as you lie on the air mattress bed, waiting for sleep to come. Maybe the kids have a very hazy idea as to how it was in the past when there was no electricity and the only source of light then at night was a lantern.

Your kids would love to hear stories of the old times and experience hearing some of them from you who may have this kind of experience before in your boyhood, because you are not really the city-bred kind. You come from the rural areas of America, which may not have the same sophisticated lighting in the big cities. Likely, you used lanterns in your dad’s farmhouse out there in the agricultural areas of your state. The kids now may wonder what you had then as equivalent to the best air mattresses that they use now in your outings.

Your kids were a bit amazed before of your rural accent in speaking with them until you were able to correct that with the help of your wife who is an English teacher by profession. You met your wife in your faraway county in rural America when they assigned her there before as a new education graduate from college.

She used to smile quietly also, fascinated with your quaint English accent, but she was all admiration for you then as a husky young man used to the hard life in the farm. Your dad’s farm was right next to the school where she taught and you used to watch her intently passing by your farm on the way to the school.

You became friends when she inquired from you whether you accept boarders in your farmhouse, so she does not have a long distance to walk when she reports for work in the mornings. This was your chance to befriend her closer; you gave her the go-signal to get her things so she can start boarding with you, even if you have not asked your dad yet. She asked though if she has to get her portable air mattress from the city.

You suggested to her to get it right away; you were so enthralled by the English teacher who was quite a beauty. She is your wife now, and still very much a beauty.
