You, too, can become a mattress professional -- and get a good night's sleep -- with the advice in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- Air mattress
- Pump or vacuum
Lay out the mattress
Lay out the air mattress, spread across a floor.
Open the valve cover and connect the pump.
Turn on the electric pump or pump up the mattress manually if you're using a hand or foot pump.
Inflate an air mattress with a vacuum if you do not have a pump by inserting the hose from the vacuum into the valve on the mattress.
Reverse the suction on your vacuum to make it blow out air.
Allow to fill
Turn on the vacuum and allow the mattress to fill until it is full.
Close the valve cover on the mattress, lay down, and rest.
