How do I clean raccoon feces out of my attic?
Cleaning your attic after you have relocated raccoons from it is one
of the most important things to do to make your home clean and safe
place once again. After the raccoon family has been in your attic,
they have left quite a mess there. Your attic will be full of
raccoon feces and urine in large piles (as raccoons tend to use one
location for their toilet needs); there will be pile of wood
splinters, insulation scattered everywhere, possibly open wiring and
isolation, both on the point of entry into the attic as well as
around the attic itself-because adult raccoon has used whatever she

wear disposable clothes and rubber gloves and boots are a must. It
is also a good idea to put a mask over your nose and mouth during
cleaning. Before you begin cleaning, spray feces and urine spots
with a disinfecting solution and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. Wild
animals are not the ones that can be kept as pets in homes. These
are also not allowed to be entered in homes, attic, or any place
where the human are to move about. This is just because of the
threats and dangers which is caused by the wild animal’s presence.
