PIGEON / BIRD GUANO REMOVAL
From building damage to serious health risks, bird guano can be more than just an unsightly inconvenience if left unchecked for long periods. Bird droppings can be extremely difficult to manage and clean. Being very acidic, bird guano can damage your property which can result in expensive repairs as well as present you with a health risk.
Areas such as roofs, balconies, machinery, ventilation systems and lofts, provide birds with sheltered spots that are ideal nesting sites.
Safe bird waste removal is not only needed to improve the aesthetic appearance of a building or surface that it is present, it helps to prolong the life of the surface and helps to ensure that any risk to human health is eliminated.
We will ensure that all traces of droppings are removed and dispose of the waste safely, leaving your building hygienically clean and disinfected to remove any health risks.
Birds carry many deadly diseases within their bird droppings and there is a high risk of these transferring to us, leaving us extremely ill as follows:
- Histoplasmosis – Results from fungus growing in dried bird droppings. Histoplasmosis is contracted by breathing in the bacteria of bird guano and it primarily affects a person’s lungs. However, once spread through the entirety of the body, the consequences can be fatal.
- Cryptococcosis – Is a yeast-like infection which results in tumours in lungs and in some cases, spreading to the brain.
- Psittacosis – Also known as Parrott fever – Psittacosis is an infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydophila. Psittacosis can be mild, moderate, or severe; it can also be difficult to detect as some people have no symptoms.
- Salmonella – Once the illness has been contracted it can have severe consequence, especially for young children, who are more vulnerable to the disease. Dust from droppings can be sucked through ventilators and air conditioners, contaminating food and cooking surfaces in restaurants, homes, and food processing plants.
The diseases are airborne and can therefore be easily contracted by us. Therefore, it is crucial to remove bird guano.
