There are several reasons why you should consider removing bird guano from your building:-
- Health and Safety issues
Guano and Nesting Debris is usually infested with various parasites and blood feeding insects which can spread into your building.
There are several airborne diseases which originate in bird droppings and which represent a risk to human health. The dry dust of droppings can be inhaled after being blown in through an open window or spread by air ventilation systems. The 3 main diseases are Histoplasmosis, Cryptococcosis and Psittacosis. All 3 are debilitating, at the very least.
The build up of guano on floors and pavements can be a serious slip hazard, especially when wet. If you are an employer or a local authority, you could be legally liable for accidents or health problems to staff or visitors arising from uncleared bird droppings.
- Damage to Property and Equipment
Bird Guano is very acidic and will lead to the corrosion of surfaces and permanent damage to the structure of your building or equipment. Roofs, balconies, machinery, ventilation systems and lofts are all ideal spots for roosting and nesting. It naturally follows that where birds roost, they also defecate. If the guano is not dealt with properly it can lead to higher cleaning and repair bills.
Safe removal of Bird Waste is vital to the aesthetic appearance of a property. A building with bird guano gives a bad impression of your business / property to people.
FACT: Bird Guano is classed as Hazardous Waste unless it has been treated with Pesticide administered by a qualified Pest Technician.
