Decluttering Attic Space – Learn Organization Skill

Attics are known to be filled with half-filled boxes and discarded things that are just too good to throw out, but are always getting in the way. This often involves family heirlooms or old records that are lost because of disorganization. It is not an excuse for it to look like it was struck by a cyclone only because you use your attic for storage.

Time, resources and space are saved by keeping your attic in order. Home clutter comes from disorganization not by lack of space. In your attic you may stack unused but valuable memories as well as junk. Other than throwing them here and there, ask a junk removal service.

Here are the steps to how your attic can be organized.

SORT IT OUT

Sorting the things based on their use is the first step in keeping your attic organized. Simply putting things in separate piles is fine at this point. You will sweep up the piles, of course, until you are done. Sorting by season, by person or by some other category makes sense.

GET RID OF THIS GARBAGE

Junk in your attic probably has surpassed its purposes but still piled up there. This involves broken things that you hope to repair someday, or those with missing pieces. For them, the safest storage place is a dumpster.

Other things, including old kids’ toys, can no longer match your needs, but are perfect for someone else. Place these to be sold or donated.

FIND A UNIT OF SELF-STORAGE

Things like furniture that you really do not have room for may take up precious space in your attic right now. Until you are able to use them again, consider moving these things to a self-storage facility. That way, for the stuff you use regularly, you can free up space.

EVALUATE ENTIRE MESS

Although some products do not need special packaging or containers, such as Grandma’s old cane or child’s first baseball bat, others require airtight containers to safeguard them from ageing, such as old military papers and someone’s will.

TO PROTECT YOURSELF IN THE BEST WAY, YOU WILL NEED:

  • Protective equipment
  • Appropriate lighting
  • Stable temperatures
  • Cleaning products
  • Protective equipment

Attics are known for providing bad ventilation. Dust and dust mites may make the situation tough for allergy or cold flare. The air quality risks are much more severe if there is an undiagnosed mold infestation. It is still best to wear a shielding mask during your attic clean-out due to these possible health hazards. Masks will shield you from toxic particles being inhaled that can impair your ability to breathe properly. Additionally, to protect you from dust and other irritants, protective gloves and safety glasses are also strongly recommended.

APPROPRIATE LIGHTING

Often the difference between you missing signs of a significant issue or not may be an afterthought, suitable lighting for your workplace. In addition to the obvious consequences of operating in a poorly lit room (falling, injury, etc.), not getting a reasonable amount of light will make it more difficult to spot potentially dangerous issues.

STABLE TEMPERATURES

The attics can be up to 40 degrees colder than the rest of your house as the heat rises. In the summer months, tackling an attic cleanout can be extremely dangerous if the appropriate precautions are not taken. If at the time of your project you live in an environment with high temperatures, early mornings or after the sun has set are the best times to function.

CLEANING PRODUCTS

You can collect all the required things to make your attic feel tidy, organized if you envision living in a secured and nitty-gritty space after the attic is cleaned out.

You need:

  • Duster
  • Broom & dustpan
  • Vacuum
  • Disinfectant
  • Cloth washing agent
  • Trash bags
