The key to any successful home improvement project is planning. Above all, take precautions to avoid a dangerous working environment when working in the attic – use an OSHA-approved particulate respirator or double-strap dust mask rated to prevent inhalation of dust and insulation fibers. Also, wear old clothes, gloves, knee pads, eye protection, and remember to watch your step – walk on ceiling joists or truss cords, NOT between them (the ceiling below).
