If you are planning to move to another location and want to take your sleeper sofa with you but don't know how to disassemble it. Don't worry we've got you covered.
This step-by-step guide will help you take apart your sleeper sofa with ease. So, let's get started.
TIPS TO TAKE APART A SLEEPER SOFA FOR MOVING
Start by removing the cushions
First, remove the back cushions. The process of removing the back cushions will depend on the sofa's design. Some have a zipper, some have velcro, and others are simply sewn.
Second, remove the seat cushions. They are easily removable. Once removed, you will be exposed to the underside of the bed frame. But before trying to do anything with the bed frame, it's important to follow the next step.
Open Out the Sleeper Sofa
As you unfold the sleeper sofa it'll turn into a bed. Now, you need to remove the mattress. Since the mattress is now removed, what remains is the raw bed frame. To remove the bed frame you need to follow the next step.
Fold up the bedframe again
It'll be difficult for you to remove the bedframe from the sofa if you kept it unfolded. To remove it efficiently fold up the bedframe again. Once you're done, now it's time to locate the screws.
Identify the screws and locate them
Look for the screws, once you find the location of each screw, unscrew them one at a time. A better way to do this is to either tilt the bed frame or lay the sofa bed with its back on the floor. This will give you easier access to the screws and make it easier to unscrew.
Lift out the bedframe
After unscrewing, lift the bed frame out and set it aside. For easier handling, tie the folded bed frame together to prevent it from opening or making noise during transport.
Now unscrew the rest
The final step is to disassemble the rest of the attached parts such as the sofa frame, arms, backrest, etc. Unscrew them one by one, and if you find that stapled fabric hinders the process, you may want to cut it.
Never lose screws. Keep them safe
Always remember to keep the screws safe. Make sure you count all the screws and keep them in properly sealed packaging. When unscrewing different parts, we recommend starting by keeping the screws separate and labeling each package. This will help you figure out which screw you removed from where.
With these steps, you can quickly and easily disassemble and move your sleeper sofa.
