Meaning of the Term as it Pertains to Mattresses

What is Vacuum Packed?

Vacuum packing is a method of packaging a foam mattress so it can easily be brought into the home. This environmentally friendly procedure involves compressing a foam mattress, vacuum sealing it in plastic, and rolling it. The vacuum-packed result resembles a rolled-up carpet. Setting up the mattress simply involves unrolling it, allowing it to naturally expand into its standard size, and pealing the plastic off.
