Leaves under Tub

We purchased a house a year ago with two tubes that had access points under the house where the drains are about a square foot. I closed those off. Accessing the tubs over the weekend to check things out from behind the faucets in the tubs, I noticed rather large amounts of leaves stuffed back in each tub, one worse than the other. Of course a previous nest for some animal, most likely squirrel. The question is do I get my shop-vac and suck out all the leaves and whatever else is back there or just leave well enough alone and not disturb. Thank you for the input.

I would try to evacuate organic matter from under there, since it will eventually rot and cause odors. Then reseal the hole to prevent it from happening again.
