The attic is a great storage area for holiday decorations and memorabilia from high school, the family’s heirlooms, furniture, and seasonal attire. Every attic can be complete; once the limit is reached, additional storage is no longer an option. Experts don’t recommend that you store certain items for longer than a few weeks, not months or even years. Clothes, bedding, stuffed animals, mattresses, and box springs are a few examples. These items do not only end up in the trash after the course of a few weeks, however, but they also provide a refuge for pests like mice, rats, or bed bugs. They also harbor dust mites and spiders.
How Our Residential Attic Cleanout Service Works?
Our attic cleanout utilizes state-of-the-art equipment, personal safety gear, and large trucks to remove stored items to a landfill recycle center, a recycling center, or facilities for waste removal. There are two options available when it comes to an attic cleanout. These options include do-it-yourself and professionals such as our junk removal.
Why wait until your attic is filled when we can ensure that our cleanout services are economical and reliable, and readily available? Our attic cleanout strategies are customized to maximize efficiency and cost. The entire cleanout process is broken down into steps:
- The removal team arrives at the property and greets the owner.
- One of our cleanout teams explains the attic cleanout process to the client.
- The team will access and prepare the attic for cleanout
- Stored items are put into containers for transport to the work trucks
- After all the items have been removed from the attic space, the task of cleaning will begin.
- The attic is thoroughly cleaned before the cleanout team is allowed to leave home in the closing time.
After leaving the property, the attic clean-out team will transport their truckloads of junk to an approved landfill or a waste transfer station.
What Do Our Removal Experts Say About Attic Cleanout?
As mentioned previously, vulnerable items should not be stored for more than a few months at a time. When stored in vacuum-sealed containers, fabrics, such as silk, cotton, twill linen, silk, and Viscose, can safely be kept for up to 2 years. Vacuum-sealed storage bags protect stored objects from dust mites, crickets, mice, termites, cockroaches, beetles, and silverfish. There is, however, the question of where to store these items.
Experts suggest homeowners clean out their attics at least twice a year. A lack of power, a truck or other vehicle, or time should not prevent you from cleaning out your attic. If you do not have all of the necessary items, we suggest our professional attic cleanout.

It is possible to scrub an attic even if it is stuffed with storage boxes. If the space in the attic has been overflowing, we can help remove parts or all the things to allow for effective cleaning. Do-it-yourself attic cleaning does not need to be time-consuming or complicated, nor do you require specific equipment. With the tips provided below, your attic is sure to be sparkling and clean.
- Start by moving the items to either the left or right side of the attic.
- Vacuum the space before cleaning
- Clean walls as well as storage containers, shelves, and other fixtures utilized for storage

It’s recommended to inspect your storage units to ensure they are in good order. Items that are damaged should be removed from the attic before putting them in a junk pile to be taken to the garbage service.
Please do not be reluctant to benefit from our attic cleanout consultation and inspection services.
Neaten Up Your Attic Storage
The modernization of your attic storage system can result in significant improvements in the order of storage of things. We suggest plastic storage containers with resealable lids instead of cardboard storage boxes, which are prone to deterioration over time.
