Bird Droppings (Guano) Removal and Cleaning
Birds can cause substantial damage to a property and the surrounding area, if they are roosting or nesting on your property. They will quickly generate a significant amount of nesting material and bird droppings, which can block guttering and create a fertile breeding ground for parasites. This is not only unsightly, but can also become a significant risk to health, as it can become slippery, acidic and also spread diseases such as Psittacosis, Salmonella or Ornithosis.
The most common birds to cause a pest nuisance are pigeons and seagulls, but any species of bird can become a nuisance if allowed to roost or nest in any number. Adult nesting birds will also attack any person or pet that encroaches on a nest which contains their young.
The cleaning of bird droppings and nesting materials of any significant quantity should be undertaken with extreme care and with full personal protective equipment worn. You must ensure a risk assessment is completed, a safe method of working is used and only commence the cleaning and removal, when sufficient protection is in place to prevent unauthorised access to the area affected. Given the above, that the work may be in a confined space and proofing of the property may also be required to prevent the birds returning, it may be prudent to employ an experienced and professional bird control company such as National Bird Control.
