The first and the foremost steps are to remove the bedding of the air mattress. Because it will be difficult to find the hole if there is any bedding on the same. so, If your leaking air mattress has any bedding on it, then totally take off all this bedding from the mattress.

If you are lucky, then sometimes you can even determine the source of the leak on your air mattress with the naked eye. For this, you will need to allow more space for the mattress to be examined. So, if your room or area at where the air mattress is place is too confined for you to spread out the mattress, then it is better to move the mattress to a wider area at where you can spread it out and can turn it over. Most of the times, it is better to do this search at out of doors as it is the best place providing you with the larger area and by watching it in daylight, you can be sure that any dust, dirt, or debris will not hide the hole that leaks air.

If you don’t have any wet cloth or sponge with you, then you can try this method by filling a spray bottle with a small amount of detergent and warm water. Mix them both thoroughly by shaking the bottle. Later, spray the mattress with the warm soapy water, slowly as sprinkles. Now, detect the air mattress surface clearly again for air bubbles escaping from the leak.
