The Dark Side of Spring Cleaning

By  | 

Before you begin spring cleaning there is a life threatening danger we want to remind you about.

Hanta Virus is a serious and many times deadly respiratory infection.
This virus is carried by Deer Mice and can be spread through their saliva, urine, or droppings. If infected, flu like symptoms will appear anywhere from one to six weeks after exposure, then you'll get a cough and shortness of breath.
There is no known treatment for this disease.

You can protect yourself from this by airing out any area before you clean it and if you notice droppings or a nest spray it down with a bleach water solution and use a shop vacuum to clean it up, do not sweep that area.
