Why is Pigeon Guano Removal important?
Many buildings, particularly older ones have been subject to long term infestation of birds and therefore require specialised removal and cleaning before they are safe to work in.
Pigeon Guano, if left for a long period of time, becomes highly corrosive and can cause costly damage to the infrastructure of a building.
The harm to humans and other animals comes from inhalation of dust from bird droppings or guano and can lead to a number of serious diseases including Psittacosis, Histoplasmosis.
