  • The measurements on the box are defined as the "sleep surface" of the bed or the area you would cover with a fitted sheet. Some bed models may appear larger due to features such as headboards or expanded bases.

  • Aerobed inflatable mattresses are for residential use, therefore they meet all applicable Federal and State flammability requirements.

  • The general weight guidelines are:
    Twin size mattress - 300 lbs for 1 person.
    Full size mattress - 450 lbs between 2 individuals.
    Queen size mattress (both single and raised models) - 600 lbs between 2 individuals.

  • Aerobed inflatable mattresses are not designed to be used as permanent everyday beds but only to be used occasionally, as guest beds. If you are using an airbed over several days, you may need to occasionally add air as PVC stretches over time.

  • Various solutions for finding and fixing leaks in Airbeds
    My airbed seems to be leaking. What can I do?
    It is important to note that the firmness of your bed may decrease after you initially inflate it. This is normal and not an indication of leaking. The material is simply stretching after inflation. Add air to your desired firmness. If you believe your bed is still potentially leaking, follow the steps below:

    Leak Identification Process:

    • To identify a leak, fully inflate the bed and listen for any hissing or other sounds that may indicate a leak location. Place your hand parallel to the surface of the airbed approximately 2 inches away and slowly trace the surface of the airbed. Most leaks are found on the top surface, so check the top of the surface first. If the leak is not found, check the side and bottom. If a leak is found, follow the steps below.

      Leak repair with liquid sealant for flocked or laminated PVC:
    • Please note holes larger than 1/2 inches or cuts larger than 1 inch are unlikely to be repaired successfully. Clean the bed with a dry paper towel and then lay the bed flat on the ground. This will help the glue to say in place while it dries. Apply about a dime size of liquid sealant (Seal all) to the bed using a small circular pattern. Wait 4 hours for the glue to cure.

      Leak repair with an adhesive patch for smooth PVC:
    • Please note holes larger than 1/2 inches or cuts larger than 1 inch are unlikely to be repaired successfully. Clean off the bed with a dry paper towel and lay the bed flat on the ground. Cut the repair patch in a circle. Apply to the bed making sure there are no wrinkles. Use your thumb to apply pressure ensuring the patch is completely adhered to the PVC.
  • The key to folding up a bed is to get as much air out of it as possible. If your bed has a deflate mode on the pump...use it. It's a great tool. When using any pump on the deflate mode, close the quick air release valve first or you will be drawing more air into the bed and it will never be completely flat. If your bed does not have the deflate mode on the pump, open the air release valve and let as much air escape as possible...Aid the expulsion of air by pushing down on the opposite end of the bed from the valve. Start folding the bed up away from the air release valve, leaving it open, working your way towards it, so excess air can escape. Once the bed is folded up, or all the air removed, make sure you close the valve.

  • For small pin hole repairs we recommend a third party product called “Seal All” that can be purchased from most hardware stores. For more extensive repairs, we recommend our Aerobed Patch Kit.

  • You can clean your inflated airbed with a damp washcloth and mild soap. Take care not to get the pump wet. Allow the bed to completely dry before storing.
