Basements and Rooms

It is important to use a good soap or detergent, and lots of hot water when cleaning. Avoid household bleach.

  • Thoroughly scrub walls, solid floors and ceilings.
  • Water and wastes can be removed by pumping, pails, shovels, etc.
  • Bury waste at least 50 feet away from the source of any water supply. Lime can be used to cover waste before covering with soil.
  • Leave doors and windows open after cleaning to help the drying process.
