  • Ha, we hired someone to clean. And we took evyhting we could out of the house, dishes, clothes... Everything that we couldn't we covered. It took us forever to get the smell out. It was horrible and we also bugged for spiders, and were told that it wouldn't kill them, just lush them into corners and sure enough... A day later we had spiders back...

  • I did. I covered anything like a mattress and fabric sofas. But then I wiped down any surface that I could.
