Acidic bird guano corrodes surfaces leaving them vulnerable and in need of repair. Apart from this damage and the aesthetic impact, far more serious are the consequences to human health. Pigeon guano harbours mites and several diseases such as Psittacosis and Salmonella. The bird droppings produce contaminated dust that can enter HVAC systems. The dust will also enter the respiratory systems of any individuals within that environment.
Bird guano is commonly seen on balconies, public areas and roofs. Due to the nature of where these may be located, it can often be extremely dangerous to work at high levels if the proper equipment is not used for safety precautions. However, Ideal Response have the equipment, experience and knowledge to tackle all types of guano removal wherever it may be located.

The entire pigeon guano removal process begins when you first contact our team of experts. Once the relevant details have been provided we will determine an estimate for the cost of the job. Once the initial discussion has been completed, a date will be set for the service.
Our technicians will arrive on site, assess the situation and use their expertise to determine the most effective cleaning method. There are a number of factors that must be considered when deciding on the cleaning method. If the bird guano is in a public area or close to a water source the technicians must factor this in during the initial decision-making process, due to the fact that this could cause significant hygiene issues during the bird guano removal service.
Once the best course of action has been determined, our team of bird dropping removal experts will commence the clean and ensure no guano is left behind. Once all guano has been removed from the area, the next step is for the team to complete the decontamination phase of the pigeon dropping removal service. The decontamination will ensure that no harmful disease, viruses or bacteria are left remaining on the surface.
As previously mentioned, bird guano is extremely acidic in nature, and will immediately begin to erode the surface it is on. As you can imagine, over a long period of time, this will inevitably cause major issues to a surface and potentially a building’s structure. For this reason alone we strongly recommend that you hire an expert to conduct a bird dropping removal service regularly. It will not only protect your property, but it will also protect the health of any inhabitants and any animals on the premises.
The HSE state that bird guano can cause psittacosis and salmonella due to inhaling water droplets which contain bird droppings. Bird guano should be cleared as soon as possible and kept well out of reach from all youngsters.
Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by a fungus that grows in pigeon droppings. The fungus can also be found in bat droppings or in the soil, and is carried by the wind. When removing droppings, people may breathe in some of the fungus.
