I do, thank you for checking. I have a P100 respirator, full body zip suit, gloves, and eye protection. And, I'm armed with bleach to make sure it's done right. While some may say it's overkill, I'd much rather be overly cautious and get to enjoy this puppy!

Sounds good. I had to help clean out an old barn with this risk present, and we drenched the suspect areas with a 50/50 bleach solution sprayed on each collection of droppings and nest areas, one day in advance, and let it sit overnight. Not sure if you have this option in your many locations, as the dripping solution can stain whatever it hits. In an old barn, this was not a problem.

The next day, removal of the soggy messes was fairly easy and we felt pretty secure with good respirators and gloves on (which were disposed of immediately). Portable electric heaters and fans, with windows cracked open, helped dry out the areas for a couple of days afterwards.

Glad you realize the risks and are taking precautions. Yup -- might as well stick around to have fun with the new Airstream!
