Put on latex rubber gloves before cleaning up.

DO NOT stir up dust by sweeping up or vacuuming up droppings, urine or nesting materials.

Instead, use wet cleaning methods:

  • Make a disinfectant solution (9 parts water to 1 part bleach) or a store-bought disinfectant and follow the label instructions.
  • Spray the disinfectant solution on polluted areas and let it sit for 15-20 minutes before cleaning.
  • Soak sponges in the disinfectant solution and clean.
  • Place all cleaning materials in a sealed plastic bag and throw them away immediately.
