Can a basement be livable again after having chickens?

We've had our chickens staying in the basement during the winter, maybe two months now. I want to move them back outside and make part of the basement into a bedroom area. It would be completely on the opposite side from where the chickens were. If I bleach the walls and floors in the entire basement would it be safe for us to stay down there?

I would think so.
Is there poop and stuff down there?
Just be careful with bleach. it can create a toxic gas if there is ammonia in the leftover waste. Clean all poop and stuff up first with something else then use the bleach.
