Spring cleaning is done! I decided it was time to do a deep clean of the coop. Although I maintain the coop clean and as smell free as possible. I would say a deep cleaning is in order once a year.
I change the deep litter regularly, about 3 times a year, which seems to be the right amount.
For the deep cleaning, I used ½ cup of bleach for over a gallon of warm water. The deep cleaning consisted on removing all the litter (including all of it stuck in the corners). I then, cleaned the floor, all the roosts, windows etc. with the bleach mixture, let it stand for about 5 minutes and rinse everything with warm water. I allowed the coop to air dry completely before adding fresh pine shaving.
