New mattresses are a costly investment, and it’s almost impossible to get rid of an old one unless you leave it on the curb for the trash collectors. Wake ReStores have a different idea!
The Raleigh and Fuquay-Varina ReStores sell donated, sanitized mattresses and box springs for all bed sizes. The sanitation process is safe, environmentally friendly, and most importantly approved by the NC Department of Health and Human Services.
We accept gently worn mattresses and box springs that meet our standards – items must be in good condition, have no tears, rips, stains, or structural defects. Accepted bedding is then sent to a local vendor who reconditions the mattresses and box springs using dry heat sanitation.
What is Dry Heat Sanitizing?
Dry heat sanitation is a a chemical-free process that kills bed bugs, dust mites, blood-borne pathogens and other living micro-organisms. Mattresses and box springs are heated to 230 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours. Heat is absorbed by exterior surface of an item and then passed inward to the next layer. Eventually, the entire item reaches the proper temperature required for sanitation. Mattresses are then manually inspected quality assurance and receive a certification from NC State of Health and Human Services.
Our mattresses are sanitized and reconditioned as follows:
Bedding is completely inspected and sanitized per North Carolina General Statues.
Dirt is extracted from the mattress.
Tears are hand-stitched.
Box springs are repaired, including:
Replacement of wooden slats
Underlayment replacement per industry standards
All bedding is completely sealed in 3 mil mattress bags to avoid cross-contamination.
Mattress are returned with the yellow North Carolina state certification labels.
Complete records of all sanitized items are kept on hand for review by the inspector for the Department of Health and Human Services.
