Bird waste, or bird guano, is a highly corrosive and dangerous substance that leaves unsightly marks on roofs, walls and property exteriors.
Not only is pigeon guano ugly, but it can also be dangerous to human health and the environment. That's why Pest-Tech offers specialist bird dropping removal as part of our bird control service.
Why Bird Droppings Need To Be Cleaned Up Quickly
Bird droppings aren’t just ugly: they pose a range of health risks to humans and animals, including beloved pets.
Some of the main health hazards and risks associated with a build-up of bird droppings include:
- Public Health Concerns: Guano contains harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites, which spread into the air around it and can cause respiratory problems for vulnerable individuals, such as those with a compromised immune system.
- Histoplasmosis: One of the most serious issues surrounding a build-up of bird guano is the risk of Histoplasmosis, which is a fungal infection caused by breathing in the fungus that grows on bird droppings.
- Slip Hazards: Bird droppings can be slippery and make walkways unsafe, and you could be liable for any accidents that happen on your property.
- Corrosion: Bird guano is highly acidic and contains a high concentration of Uric Acid, which can burn through paint, wax and other protective coatings quickly, causing marks on your equipment or vehicles.
- Damage To Buildings: Old buildings are particularly susceptible to bird infestations and can end up filled with bird droppings, the weight and corrosive nature of which can contribute to extensive structural damage over time.

Our Bird Guano Cleaning Process
When we work with a new bird dropping removal client, the first step we undergo is to conduct a risk assessment on the affected areas of your property.
We will then be able to know how long the safe removal of pigeon guano will take. For large quantities of bird droppings, we might need more time to remove the pigeon poop and other debris from the area. Smaller projects will take less time, but we will provide a comprehensive quote before we start any job and explain how we will carry out the treatment.
When the bird droppings removal is underway, our team will use the appropriate PPE to ensure their safety and allow them to provide a thorough disinfection service. They will remove the bird guano and ensure the safe and legal disposal of any waste materials from your site.
Once the surfaces are cleaned of pigeon droppings and the project is completed to our exacting high standard, you’ll have the beautiful, safe space you need. Our thorough decontamination process and exceptional high-quality cleaning mean that you will have a clean surface on the front of your buildings and can maintain this for many months to come using regular cleaning alone.
Over the years, bird droppings may build up again, or birds may find other areas to congregate. In this case, you can get back in touch with Pest-Tech for another bird dropping cleaning project.
