Here's some leftover mess that a rat left behind. The rat is dead now but now I have to deal with cleaning the space. Is there any special treatment I need to do to clean this properly? I was simply just going to vacuum the feces and then wipe down with some bleach. Think I should hire a professional?
I'd clean it up myself rather than hire someone. I would use a shop vac with the vac itself outside the house and use a long hose. That way the exhaust goes outside. Maybe you can connect multiple hoses together. Bleach/water is good. Wipe out the vac canister as well. Wear disposable gloves, wash hands frequently, don't eat/smoke/floss your teeth while cleaning. Glad the rat is dead.
