4 Signs Your Attic Is Too Crowded


Sometimes our lives are so busy that it’s so much easier to just throw our unused household items up in the attic, close the door, and forget about it. But, there’s only so long you can go before everything piles up and becomes too crowded. Not sure if your attic fits into this category? Well, we’ll let you know below.

1. You Can’t See The Floor

This is an issue in any room of your home. Once the floor is no longer visible, you have entered top tier hoarder mode. It can be hard to find proper storage elsewhere, but you can’t keep piling everything up in the attic-- especially if you can no longer see the floor or walk up there. 

2. Strange Odors

If you notice some weird smells coming from up in your attic, you could be dealing with an overcrowded health issue. All your items and supplies up there are subject to extreme temperature changes during every season, and the smell could be a direct result of moisture build-up. You could have mold growing up there! 

3. It’s Critter Central

There’s nothing bugs and other creepy critters love more than clutter. Not only that, but the mess can make it ten times harder to actually deal with the infestation! The reality is that you would have to do some major cleaning before you can even hire someone to deal with any creepy crawlers. 

4. Lack Of Ventilation

Your attic needs room to breathe in order to be properly ventilated. In warmer months, it’s important for keeping your home energy efficient. In cooler months, it helps get rid of moisture and keep the warm air in. However, with little to no room for ventilation, your vents won’t be able to do the jobs they were meant to do.
