Guano Removal and Cleaning
Pigeons and seagulls can become a real nuisance for your business. It’s not just the mess they make; they can also damage your premises by dislodging roof tiles and blocking guttering.
Pigeon guano carries serious health risks through both dry dust and wet compacted waste which has accumulated over a period of time. Those commonly known to be associated with bird guano are generally inhaled, but there are also pathogenic organisms, parasites and worms present in guano and most can be transmitted to humans.
There are a number of other problems that mean you should adopt bird control measures sooner rather than later. Pigeons and seagulls on your premises can:
1. Be a health hazard, by spreading diseases such as Ornithosis, E.Coli and Salmonella.
2. Deface buildings and vehicles with their droppings. They frequently foul entrances and pavements, which can become dangerously slippery.
3. Encourage insect infestations such as bird mites, textile beetles and fleas - these are attracted to their nests and roosting sites.
4. Attack customers and employees, especially during the breeding season when they are defending their young.
Because of the health and safety risks involved with the removal of bird nests, droppings and fouling only trained personnel using appropriate equipment and PPE should undertake these tasks.
