How to Clean Your NJ Home After a Mouse Infestation


Mice are inconsiderate house guests, leaving waste and destruction behind. Contact an exterminator in my area and use these helpful tips to clean your NJ home safely and effectively.

Tips for Cleaning Your NJ Home After a Mouse Infestation

1. Begin by airing out the affected space. Open doors and windows, which will allow fresh air to circulate and disperse any particles that may be floating. Start at least 30 minutes before clean-up and make sure the space remains unoccupied.

2. Wear plastic or rubber gloves at all times. Even a tiny amount of microscopic germs landing on your hands will spread like wildfire. When you’re done, wash the gloves thoroughly before discarding, then repeat the washing with your hands.

3. Avoid the use of brooms or vacuums that will serve only to stir up contaminated dust. For best results, spray the area with a solution of one part bleach to nine parts water. After 10 minutes, wipe up waste and nesting materials with a cloth or paper towel. Seal everything in a bag and place in a closed garbage receptacle. If dead rodents are present, follow the same procedure but double-bag the remains before disposal.

4. If upholstery, bedding or carpeting have been contaminated, shampoo or steam-clean affected fabrics. Clothing should be washed in detergent and hot water.
