Default pigeon infestation--cleaning after

Some pigeons gained access to my attic. I had thoughtlessly allowed the situation to persist for a couple of years, thinking that they were just scratching on the roof.

The pigeons are gone, and a few must have been trapped in side the attic and are now bare bones.

I plan to cut open and remove a section of ceiling sheet rock in the living room to gain access to the attic. I have purchased a 3-hp dust collector for wood shop. I plan to suck most of the wastes out.

I will be wearing full respirator and protective suit and all my stuffs will be removed and placed inside the bedrooms with doors closed.

I am aware of the disease risks, but it has been over five years. I am sure I have been exposed to minute concentrations of pathogens for all these years. It would be no difference than staying in the wilderness with low concentration of bird wastes, I think.

Any thoughts and opinion?

Does anyone here have the some experience?
