Initial Measures Taken
After the exterior inspection where the technician confirmed to have found feces in two different places in a customer’s yard, the technician on-site started the raccoon removal process. Precaution is used where personal protective equipment was used to minimize direct contact with the raccoon feces. Gloves, masks, goggles, and protective suits are used for these kinds of jobs.
The first step is to spray the feces down with a botanical hospital-grade disinfectant. The reason why the feces is first sprayed down is to minimize particles going airborne which can cause people to fall ill. It also reduces spores being able to circulate as well.
After the feces are sprayed down, the technician then moves on to pick them up by hand. This of course is done with gloves and put in industrial plastic bags and then safely disposed of.
After the feces have been cleared, the technician will spray the areas down again with the same hospital-grade disinfectant to minimize pathogens from turning airborne.
Last, but not least, the area was treated with a steamer that operates the heat at least 100 degrees celcuis. This is to ensure that roundworm eggs and contaminants are minimized.
This is of particular importance when a property owner has either kids or pests or both because these roundworm eggs will pass the stool of the raccoon and end up in the soil where kids and pets can put contaminated soil in their mouths. Raccoon feces should not b taken lightly as they are categorized as a “Class 4 Biohazard”. This means that viruses can cause fatal or severe damage for which vaccines are NOT available.
