Attic spaces in New Jersey homes can get hot during summer! And even though they make for a great storage solution, attics should be used to store things that aren’t susceptible to extreme temperatures.

What shouldn’t you store in your attic during the summer? Here are just a few examples:

  • baseball cards
  • candles
  • clothing
  • guitars
  • paper
  • pictures
  • scrapbooks
  • videotapes
  • wood furniture

These and other similar items won’t hold up to extreme heat and other dramatic temperature changes that occur in the attic space of a home. If you’re going to use the attic for storage, it’s wise to add things such as temperature control and lighting to make your life easier and keep your items in good condition!
