How To Prepare For Sanitation?
Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of work to be done. The animals may be gone, but their droppings and waste still pose a threat to you and other people in the building. This waste still contains countless diseases and parasites, so it’s important to properly sanitize the area and remove all odors.
Animal droppings may not be able to scratch or bite you, but they are still very dangerous. You need to prepare and use the right equipment to keep yourself safe as you remove the waste.
- Remove wildlife. You need to ensure the wildlife is completely gone and all entries have been properly sealed. Only begin sanitizing a week after the animals have been removed. This makes the waste less infectious and guarantees the wildlife is gone.
- Ventilate the area. Diseased particles might be in the air, so you should ventilate the area for at least 30 minutes before you begin.
- Wear gloves. Touching the waste puts you at risk and you’re likely to spread any diseases and parasites around. Gloves prevent physical touch and protect you.
- Use disinfectants. These can either be store-bought disinfectants or they can be a bleach solution — with 1 part bleach to 9 parts water.
- Bring cleaning material. To actually clean the droppings, you should bring paper towels, rags, mops, and plastic bags with you.
If it was a large infestation or you want to be extra cautious, you can also wear coveralls, rubber boots, goggles, and a respirator.
How To Clean Animal Droppings?
Once you have everything ready, it is time to clean the area. Simply follow these steps:
- Spray the disinfectant on droppings. Let the solution sit for at least 5 minutes, to remove any diseases or parasites.
- Remove the droppings. You should then use a paper towel to grab and remove the droppings and put them in a plastic bag. Next, place this bag inside a second one and seal it tightly before disposing of it.
- Disinfect contaminated items. Some items in your home may have come into contact with the droppings. It is important to properly disinfect these as well.
- Mop the area. Once all the droppings are gone, you can use the disinfectant to mop the area. This helps remove any scents or anything too small to be seen.
- Wash fabrics. Anything upholstered or with fabric needs to be taken special care of. Upholstered furniture and carpets should be steam cleaned and shampooed to remove any exposure. Clothing and bedding should be washed with detergent in hot water afterward.
Once you have cleaned the area, you should dispose of your gloves and wash your hands.
When cleaning animal waste, you should avoid sweeping or vacuuming. This can stir up contaminated particles which put you at risk.
