Bird Waste Removal

Bird waste can pose a triple threat, of health and safety, damage to structures and machinery, and visual pollution at significant risk and cost to your business.


Health & Safety

Although fresh bird droppings are not particularly toxic, built up dry bird waste can be a significant health risk. It can provide a fertile breeding ground for toxic bacteria and unwanted germs, leading to diseases such as Newcastle disease, Gastroenteritis, Cryptococcosis and more. Bird nests may also harbour mites, which can cause further health concerns if they pass to humans.

When dried bird droppings are disturbed they can aerosolise, increasing the risk of bacterial spread throughout the area. If they’re near ventilation systems this can particularly dangerous. Fresh bird droppings and extensive build up that becomes wet from rain can carry the risk of people slipping and become potential liability for your business.


Corrosive Damage

Bird droppings can have a corrosive effect on some surfaces. Cars are particularly susceptible to bird damage from bird droppings, with the acids they contain capable of blistering through the paintwork. Unprotected industrial machinery is also vulnerable to the corrosive effects of bird waste. Droppings are also known to have a corrosive effect on some stonework, damaging and eroding the surface over time.


Visual Pollution

Bird waste looks bad. Whether you have a shopfront representing your brand to customers, or a commercial complex with staff, appearances matter and say a lot about your brand. Warehouse and factory areas with concentrated bird waste cause a foul smell and reduce likelihood of interaction with those areas.

There is no doubt, a build up of bird waste can have a devastating effect on the impression of a brand, reducing brand value and revenue.


High Pressure Clean Up & Waste Removal

For large, or aged bird waste areas, it’s important to call specialised professionals. There are significant risks involved in cleaning bird waste and just hosing it off doesn’t always complete the solution. Different environments require different methods to protect the health of the cleaner, your family and employees. Density of the droppings, proximity to ventilation systems, or children’s play areas are important factors to consider.

Our specialists wear personal protective equipment and ensure the bird waste is not converted to dust risking airborne spread of harmful bacteria. We use a combination of methods including surface impact, high pressure hoses and bleach treatments to remove bacteria in sensitive areas.
