Bird Fouling Removal 

As well as specialising in the installation of bird deterrent and bird proofing systems, Birdteq also specialise in bird fouling removal, old nest removal and site decontamination.  We have experience in large bird waste removal work which has involved clearing old warehouses and smaller jobs such as pigeon guano removal from balconies and attics.  By far, pigeon dropping removal makes up most of our decontamination work.

Our decontamination teams can handle the toughest jobs in all manner of scenarios.  It’s dirty work and due to the health hazards of clearing bird droppings, full PPE has to be worn.

Bird fouling, also known as bird guano is hazardous to humans and can cause a wide range of diseases through breathing in the dust from droppings to drinking contaminated water from unsealed loft water tanks.

Certain insect species live amongst bird nests and guano, these include biting insects such as bird fleas, mites and textile pest insects including clothes moths and carpet beetles.

Associated issues from contamination-

  • Defacing of buildings and other urban structures
  • Erosion of soft stonework from acidic droppings
  • Health hazards
  • Slip hazards along walkways
  • Food and packaging contamination in factories, shops and restaurants
  • Rain water leaks from blocked roof drainage outlets
  • Insect infestations from pests living in bird nests and guano such as bird fleas, mites and clothes moths

Birdteq’s bird fouling removal service is carried out professionally, safely and in accordance to health and safety regulations to prevent spread of disease to our staff and the public. The risk of injury must also be considered, accumulating bird guano can cause wooden floors to rot.   As with all our jobs, method statements and risk assessments are completed prior to commencement of works.

Our Method of Guano removal – 

  1. Contaminated areas are cordoned off
  2. Birdteq decontamination teams where full ppe
