    Just get as much out as you can and as soon as possible. A friend had a problem with that stuff. She would tell you to go get it out nake in a blizzard if that is what it takes to get it out. Yes, she lost both her pet and her son's pet chickens.

    Do you have a shop-vac? I'd think that's the best way to remove it ALL....... good luck.
