How do I clean the sewer under my house?
Discard heavily contaminated items in the crawlspace in plastic bags, then seal the bags. Disinfect lightly soiled, hard, non-porous items by submerging them in 1 cup of bleach mixed in 1 gallon of water. Rinse in clean water and allow them to air dry. Porous items should be discarded in sealed plastic bags.
