When was the last time you cleaned out your attic? If it’s been a while, now is a great time to do so, before the temperatures heat up! For many of us, our attics are filled with clutter. Some of it we need and will still use. Others are items that eventually found their way into the attic, when really they should have been thrown away or sold. Well, now is the time to give that attic a cleanout and clear out everything you don’t want or need. Besides that, also give your attic a deep clean, if possible.
Step One: Remove Everything
This sounds like a daunting task, but if you intend to give your attic a deep clean, this is something you need to do. While you’re removing everything, purge! You want to decide what you’re going to keep, sell, or trash. Separate the piles and when you go to put things back in the attic, do not put the sell/trash piles back into the attic.
Step Two: Clean
If you’re able, wipe down the walls, sweep and vacuum. It’s going to be dusty, so be prepared with a mask.
Step Three: Inspect Your Attic
While you have an empty attic, do some inspecting. Look to make sure there is no mold or moisture; along with that, make sure you do not have any holes or issues that need to be addressed. If you find issues, have them taken care of right away.
Step Four: Put Things Back
As you’re putting the items back into the attic, be sure to organize as well. For example, keep all of your decorations together, and all of your memorabilia items together. If you use certain items more than others, keep them at an easily accessible area.
