How Do i get rid of a mouse infestation?

A guide to help you tackle a mouse infestation quickly and effectively.

The experts at Elite want to provide you with some useful tips on these not so welcome visitors, to help prevent your home from being a retreat for a family of mice!


If you’ve noticed any signs that indicate your home is the site of a rodent infestation in New South Wales, it’s important to act right away. Mice can contaminate food, chew up your drywall, and spread dangerous pathogens

Clean up any urine and droppings.

Your first task is to get rid of the most obvious—and hazardous—sign of the rodents’ presence, making sure to wear safety gloves. Mix up a bleach solution—preferably 1 part bleach to 10 parts water—and spray it on the mouse urine and droppings. Pick up the urine and droppings and put them in a plastic garbage bag, and then throw the bag away. Remove your gloves and wash your hands.

Disinfect the entire area.

Now, it’s time to get rid of your invisible visitors—the bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants that mice may have brought with them. Use your bleach solution to wash any surface that the mice may have touched. Carpets can be cleaned effectively using a steam cleaner, and bed linens, towels, and clothing can be washed with hot water and detergent. If something can’t be cleaned, it may be best to dispose of it and replace it.

Have your home Mouse-proofed.

Your last step should be to make sure that no mice are able to return to your property and cause further damage and contamination. A mouse-proofing professional can seal off every possible entry point to your home, reducing the risk of future infestations. Knowing how to discourage mice from entering your home requires experience, which is why it’s always smart to hire a seasoned professional.
