Default How safe is F10 disinfectant?

I took my hedgie, Pebbles, for a check up today and the vet said she might have mites and may need some dental work.

She doesn't seem to have any other signs of mites other than dry skin by her quills and we haven't noticed any scratching. But to be safe, she got a dose of revolution and the vet gave us F10 disinfectant with insecticide (ingredients:-Quatenary ammonium, biguanide compunds and cypermethrin) with instructions to disinfect Pebbles' bedding and cage. We have done so but as an after thought, I would like to know if this is safe for her as it does leave quite a strong smell.

The vet also noticed that her one front tooth is chipped/broken. Pebbles has been booked in to go under anesthetic. Should I be concerned?

I would rinse everything in vinegar and water to get rid of the smell and any residue from the cleaner. The smell of the cleaner could bother her.
