Spring Cleaning Your Attic and Tips for Checking Your Insulation for Issues
It's that time of year! Finally, spring is here, and it's time to start thinking about spring-cleaning your attic. A few simple steps make for an easier, more efficient process. Along with tips for spring cleaning your attic, we're also going to cover another important topic that many people forget about: their insulation. Checking your attic insulation for any issues can save you money and energy in the long run.
Spring Cleaning Your Attic
First, let's go over what you need to do for spring cleaning your attic. It's best to start by clearing out all the clutter that has likely accumulated over time. Take everything down and organize it into a box structure so you can easily access it later if needed. Once the clutter is taken care of, the fun part comes: giving the space a thorough cleaning. Vacuum or sweep up dust and debris, then mop if necessary. Dispose of any items that have seen better days and give everything else a good wipe-down with a damp cloth or cleaner designed for use on surfaces like wood, vinyl, etc.
Inspecting Your Attic Insulation
Now, let's discuss how to check for any insulation issues. To check if your insulation is up-to-date, look around all four sides of your attic - top, bottom, left, and right - for any signs of damage or thinning spots. If you can see daylight through the walls or holes in the ceiling, you need more insulation. You should also check to ensure there are no gaps or cracks between the framing boards where air may leak.

Taking a few minutes to inspect your attic insulation and fill in any gaps or cracks can help keep your energy bill down and ensure the comfort of your home.
