- Deflate the Aerobed completely. Once all the air is gone, use a mild household detergent, a sponge and water to clean the surface of the mattress. Let it air dry completely.
- Cut the vinyl patch in the repair kit to one inch larger than the size of the tear.
- Apply glue directly to the Aerobed. It should cover an area 1/4 inch larger than the entire size of the patch. Apply glue to the bottom of the vinyl patch also.
- Wait one minute. Press the patch against the mattress and push it flat against a hard surface with the palm of your hand. Hold it down for 10 seconds.
- Rub your fingers over the patch, working from the center to the edges. This removes trapped air from under the patch.
How to Repair a Hole in an Aerobed
When your Aerobed starts to deflate as soon as you use it, you'll know that you have a leak. When air escapes, your bed becomes less comfortable and essentially useless. You can patch the leak and save yourself the trouble and expense of buying a new Aerobed. Most Aerobeds include a patch kit when they're first sold, but you can always buy a new one at any home or hardware store in your area.
