Whether it's old decorations that you haven't touched in years or unwanted extra furniture, mattresses, books, or any other junk sitting around in the attic, de-cluttering your attic is important to promote good airflow within the home and to avoid putting too much weight on the attic joists.

Frequently asked questions about attic cleanouts

How often should the attic be cleaned?

Ideally, your attic should be de-cluttered and cleaned twice per year. The best times of year are during the spring and before winter sets in, especially if you live in colder northern states. If you are planning to move or sell your home, have your attic cleaned out and all junk removed before moving.

How long does it take to clean an attic?

De-cluttering an attic can take anywhere from a few hours to a whole day. Full attic cleanouts, including sweeping, vacuuming, and sanitizing can take about a whole day, depending on the size of the attic and how dirty the attic is.

How much does it cost to remove old insulation from the attic?

It costs around $1.00-$2.60 per square foot to remove insulation from an attic. Normally, it's best to avoid removing insulation unless absolutely necessary (e.g. if animal feces or mold are found). The cost might vary depending on the type of attic insulation you've installed and how hard it is to remove.

How much weight can you put in the attic?

If your attic is able to store things, avoid going over 20 pounds per square foot. If your attic wasn't designed to store things, put no more than 10 pounds per square foot of weight. Keep in mind that weight in the attic is applied to 2x6 joists. The spacing between these joists will not hold weight and can collapse easily under your body weight.
