Whether you consider them cute or creepy, mice should not be welcome to roam free in your home. If you have been dealing with an infestation, it feels great when you realize that you finally have a mouse-free home. However, things still aren’t finished. You need to clean up. After all, mice leave behind a lot more than you imagine.
They can carry diseases like the hantavirus and leptospirosis, which are life-threatening. Rats also urinate and leave droppings all over your home including your counters, your bedding, etc. Germs can stay in the feces and urine even after the mice are gone. This makes proper cleanup highly important.
You will likely want to do a basic cleanup job to start. Always make sure that you wear gloves. You don’t want to touch areas that the mice have touched with your bare hands. Clean off every surface in your home using a quality disinfectant. The CDC says that you can use a mixture of 1.5 cups of bleach to a gallon of water. Spray the affected areas and leave the spray on for between five and 10 minutes.
You should also make sure that you wash all of your clothing and bedding at this time. Don’t forget to clean your shoes, as well.
In your pantry and kitchen, you need to inspect every box and can you have to look for damage from mice. You also want to wipe everything down, just to be sure. Any food that has been damaged by the mice, even if it doesn’t look like they got into it fully, should be disposed of.
Even though you might feel that you’ve done a good job, you might want to take yet another step to ensure safety.
