What kills adenovirus germs?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

My bd has never been tested for the virus. But she has had lots of medical problems in her life. I unfortunaly have to put her down.
.I am concerned if I get another bd and use the same tank what would I use to kill off the germs? Someone told me bleach will not do it but novalsan{ spelling} will. How would I go about it? Can i soak any blankets in a novalsan solution and then wash in hot water?

id just bleach it. and wait a little while honestly. without a host "germs" dont exactly live long. soak it in a high concentrate of bleach and let it sit for a little while like a week than re-bleach.

I believe it is a virus. The name alone is anenovirus.

Hello,

Adenovirus is a virus & not a genetic disorder/disease.
Normally nothing really kills Adeno, but steaming has been shown to be very effective for killing & getting rid of the particles.
Be careful with bleaching anything heavily due to the toxic fumes that can accumulate when the tank is heated back up.
