Cleaning and Removing Bird Guano and Bird Droppings
Bird dropping removal – If there is a build up of pigeon or bird droppings on, or near your building, it is important to have it removed. You will help to protect your building and eliminate the risk to human health by thoroughly cleaning guano or bird droppings.
Bird droppings, commonly known as guano, can pose a range of problems to buildings. It is corrosive and can damage metals, brickwork and stonework. It can also cause permanent damage if not dealt with in good time.
But on top of that guano can be a threat to public health and it is essential to deal with it quickly. The droppings can spread nasty pathogens such as ornithosis, listeria and e-coli. When dry, guano can become airborne and lead to respiratory complaints such as psittacosis, and the cryptococcus fungus.
Then there is a health and safety risk of slips and trips, and the fact that birds and their nests can harbour parasites such as mites, ticks, fleas and beetles.
