For a cluttered attic space, you should consider a dumpster rental so you can plan to tackle the mess and get it organized permanently.
Along with a dumpster rental, use these sensible tips used by home makeover experts.
Gather Some Basic Supplies
These would include:
- Work gloves
- Knee pads
- Bags for rubbish
- Boxes (clear plastic with lids and paper ones)
- Marking pens
- At least one friend or family member as a helper
Eliminate What Could Be Used By Someone Else
Start at one end of the attic, and look for items that are:
- Broken or outdated
- Things you really do not need any more
The key here is to be ruthless. For instance, if you have not worn that dress for years, how likely is it that you will? If you have totally forgotten that you own a certain book, tool or household item, how important can it be? Mark a box for donation, and place these items in it. Bag what is essentially rubbish, and tote it down to an area outdoors for disposal.
Look at What is Left and Make Storage Categories
Break your attic space into categories such as photos and souvenirs, clothes, hobby items, book, Christmas, and so on. This is a great time to put up some shelving or install hooks to get as much as possible off the floor and to utilize the vertical space. As you create categories, move important things into that area.
Re-sort the Items You are Keeping.
Prioritize your saved items so that the ones you will use most frequently are the easiest to access. For example, you will use your floor-scrubbing machine more frequently than your Christmas decorations. So, make sure you put that cleaning tool closer to the attic door.
Choose an Expert Dumpster Rental Company
A dumpster can hold anything from scrap metal, cardboard, drywall, wood and plaster to roofing materials, clean earth and asphalt. Check with your local municipality for correct disposal of any liquid or hazardous waste.
