As a homeowner, you're likely no stranger to the occasional mouse or rat problem. If you want to clean rodent feces and urine, you must pay special attention to young children or pets in your home. Here are some of the most effective ways to clean up rodent waste so you can keep your family safe and healthy and how Bio-One can help you and your family stay safe from these bothersome creatures.
Put on gloves, a mask, and eye protection before beginning to clean
Before beginning any cleanup of rodent feces and urine, it is essential to put on gloves, a mask, and eye protection for safety. These precautions are necessary because rodents are known to carry pathogens that can cause serious illnesses. Not only do you want to protect yourself from these diseases, but you also need to ensure that these contaminants don't spread throughout the area you're working in. Taking the time to suit up with your protective gear properly will make sure that the cleanup is done safely.
Soak up as much urine as possible with paper towels
Soaking up urine quickly is key to preventing further damage or staining from occurring. To do so, the best method is to use paper towels, which are both highly efficient at collecting liquid. If possible, paper towels will work well when dealing with a relatively small spill. It's also best practice to double-check and make sure that all traces of the spill have been properly addressed after using either one of these methods!
Scrub the area with a disinfectant or bleach solution
Cleaning rodent feces and urine from any area is important to ensure a clean, safe environment. Disinfecting the area with bleach or another disinfectant solution is an effective way to eradicate viruses and bacteria left behind by these pests. Both bleach and a professional disinfectant can provide clean and lasting results that are well worth the effort.
Remember, it is best practice to wear protective clothing such as rubber gloves, goggles, and a face mask before scrubbing the area with your chosen product. Above all, ensure the room is ventilated during each cleaning session to avoid exposure to hazardous fumes. The remediation process can be gruesome and dangerous, so you might have to consider hiring a professional rodent droppings removal company to help.
Dry the area thoroughly to prevent mold and mildew from growing
Mold and mildew thrive in living environments with high moisture levels, making their prevention key to a healthy home. To help guard against the growth of these spores, it is essential to completely dry any areas that get wet, whether from rainwater or indoor activities such as spills.
A combination of mold and rodent feces and urine can be life-threatening. Thorough cleaning will keep mold and mildew at bay and eliminate any lingering odors caused by rodent waste buildup. Furthermore, drying out areas can help support a healthier respiratory system for everyone who lives in the home. Bio-One is a Micro-certified mold remediation contractor.
Seal any cracks or holes to prevent rodents from returning
Many homeowners believe they’ve successfully prevented a rodent infestation by eliminating all the rodents they can find. Still, without sealing any cracks and holes, more rodents will likely continue to return. Even the smallest openings can give them access to your home and prevent effectively excluding these pests. By patching up those cracks and holes with caulk or steel wool, you can prevent rodents from being able to creep back into your home. This comprehensive solution ensures that it can stay gone for good once you've solved your rodent problem.
