If I was concerned about it, I'd use a disinfecting cleaner, like lysol.  Something that kills bacteris.

Just be sure that no cats or young kids can get at the cleaned area until it dries, as cleaners like that are toxic.  Especially to small creatures.  Even the fumes can be trouble, but you should be fine if you take reasonable care.
