    Default full cleanout

    hey. how often do you guys do a full clean out in your pac enclosures? taking out every last bit of coco fiber etc? do you wipe down with disinfectant as well after or do you just give it a good scrub and leave to dry? want to hear your guy's experience.

    i planned on doing it every 6-8 weeks and only using a scouring pad to clean the enclosure afterwards with no disinfectant. spot cleaning as i go obviously. is this fine?
    thanks.

    I do a full clean out every 3 months, sometimes 2.5 months. I wouldn't do a full clean out before 2 months.

    I use this cleaner from National Geographic brand, spray it on let it set for a few min the wipe it off. It disinfects everything. I don't have much experience doing it any other way so I cant comment on that.

    The longest you should go unless Its a viv is a month. It should be Rinsed and the substrate changed once a month, and you can do a whole disinfect every few months.
