Are you looking for bird foul ‘guano’ removal services?
Our expert team of specialist cleaning technicians are ready to tackle your guano cleaning requirements.
Risks of leaving bird foul unattended
There are 3 diseases known to be associated with bird guano: histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis and psittacosis – all can represent a risk to human health. Histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis are fungal diseases that grow in the droppings and soil. Psittacosis is a bacterial disease that spreads when guano dries and guano particles become airborne and are inhaled.
In substantial quantities bird guano’s acidic matter can even cause damage to the fabric of buildings which in turn, leads to higher cleaning and repair bills. Large quantities of guano will also be infested with bird related insects.
Health and safety aspects
If you have a guano problem you should consult a qualified expert due to the risk of disease.
Whilst it’s safe to clean up the odd bird dropping, handling guano of any quantity should be done with care – especially large quantities. Measures should be taken at all times to protect staff, contractors and the public’s health if working near a guano cleaning site. There are health and safety regulations that need to be followed when working with or near bird guano.
