Tips for Decluttering Your Attic Space

Attics often become cluttered with half-filled boxes and discarded items that are too good to throw out but always seem to be in the way. 

This can include family heirlooms, old toys, hobby projects, furniture, and everything in between. 

However, just because you use your attic for storage doesn’t mean it has to look like a cyclone passed through it.

You’ve got more storage space than you might expect—all you need is to declutter and reorganize. So, keep reading! We’ll give you a few tips for decluttering your attic space…

Step-by-Step Guide to Organizing Your Attic

1. Sort It Out

The first step in organizing your attic is sorting everything out. This might feel boring and tedious, but sorting items into categories that make sense to you can help you decide what to keep, donate, or dispose of.

2. Get Rid of the Garbage

Your attic likely contains items that no longer serve a purpose but still take up space. Generally, the best place for these items is a dumpster. Other items, like old kids’ toys that are still in good condition, can be sold or donated.

3. Find a Self-Storage Unit

Large items (such as furniture) that you don’t currently need but want to keep, can take up valuable space in your attic. Consider moving these items to a self-storage facility until you need them again. This frees up space for items you use more regularly.

4. Evaluate the Entire Mess

While some items don’t need special packaging, antiques and climate-sensitive items require airtight containers to protect them from damage, (e.g. old documents, books, etc.).

Proper Preparation and Equipment 

As with any DIY project, solid preparation and the right equipment is key for a successful process. 

So, we’ll give you our recommendations:

Protective Equipment: To safeguard yourself from dust, mold, and other allergens, wear a protective mask, gloves, and safety glasses.

Stable Temperatures: Ensure your attic has a stable temperature can protect delicate items and heirlooms from damage. 

Appropriate Lighting: Proper lighting in your attic can prevent accidents and help you spot potential problems, such as signs of pests or water damage. Good lighting ensures you can work safely and efficiently.

Cleaning Products: To create a tidy and organized space, you need the right cleaning supplies (duster, broom/dustpan, vacuum, disinfectants, trash bags, etc.)
