Harmful Effects of Bird Droppings

From building damage to serious health risks, bird guano can be more than just an inconvenience if left unchecked for long periods of time.

Being very acidic, bird guano can lead to the corrosion of the surfaces it’s left on, especially tar-based roofing materials and paint finishes. 

Bird droppings can also get into, then clog, ventilation systems and air ducting which can result in expensive repairs. Bad odours and contaminants can also be spread quickly around the building through the ventilation system, which can pose a significant health risk to the public and your staff from inhaling health hazards associated with bird guano.

Importance of Bird Waste Cleanup

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. 

Bird droppings from pigeons, gulls and sparrows can result in permanent damage to the structure of your building or equipment if it is not dealt with correctly. Areas such as roofs, balconies, machinery, ventilation systems and lofts, provide birds with sheltered spots that are ideal nesting sites. 

Our bird guano cleaning service safely removes the waste and disinfects the areas to remove any health risks.
