rat dropping stains on concrete floor


I am trying to remove stains left on a concrete basement floor by old rat droppings. The droppings have already been removed -- it's the remaining stains that I'm trying to get rid of.

I tried using a sponge soaked in a water/bleach solution. This slightly lessened the stains, but for the most part they remain.

Any ideas? Stronger cleaning solution? Thanks!!

rat dropping stains on concrete floor

Mix about 2 cups of bleach into gallon of water in a plastic bucket.

Fill an empty spray bottle with the diluted bleach. Mist the rat droppings thoroughly with the cleaning mixture.

Wait 15 minutes before wipe off the surface with a rag.

Wash the area with a sponge that's saturated in the diluted bleach.

After 15 minutes just rinse the surface with water.

Dispose of rags in a plastic freezer bags and seal close. Dispose of the sealed plastic bag..

Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with hot water and disinfecting soap.

For removing such stains there is of mixing trisodium phosphate with water and an absorbent material to make a smooth paste. The cleaner slowly soaks into the concrete and breaks up the old oil, and the absorbent captures it.
