    Can someone tell me the best way to clean a room where you had raised baby chicks in and its loaded with dust etc. I have bedding, kids toys etc and want to make sure all is clean before grandkids go back in and play in that room. Do I need to remove the carpet?

    IMO just clean like a spring cleaning, dust everything, wash what you can and vacuum the rug. For the kid toys - same idea, wash what is washable, toss the rest.

    The dust made by brooding baby chicks is just dust.

    IMO, that will be enough. They should not carry diseases humans can get, just make a dusty mess. LOL
