Removing bird droppings from buildings and pedestrian areas is important because bird guano is a serious risk to health. It can also damage building structures and is unsightly and can be smelly. SafeGroup provides a highly effective and safe bird guano cleaning and removal service, eliminating hazards to humans, pets and the built environment.
Bird droppings, also known as bird guano, are a common sight in UK towns and cities. Left uncontrolled, they can build up to become a hazard to human health and a risk to buildings.
The species that causes the biggest guano problem in towns and cities is the pigeon. It roosts in roof spaces and on window ledges in large numbers, depositing huge amounts of guano over time. Other birds, such as gulls and starlings, can also cause serious problems.
That is why SafeGroup provides a bird guano cleaning and removal service that comprehensively deals with the problem and, as a result of our pest control expertise, can include measures to prevent it returning.
We can provide a fast emergency bird guano cleaning service. Or we can carry out planned bird dropping cleaning as part of a PPM programme to prevent bird droppings becoming a major problem at your premises.
SafeGroup provides a bird guano cleaning service for a wide range of customers, including office landlords, property letting agents, facilities maintenance (FM) providers, surveyors, local authorities, retailers, housing landlords, and manufacturers.
We often work with surveyors, developers and construction companies when they are refurbishing and modernising buildings that have been derelict for some time to remove guano before work is begun.
SafeGroup also provides a bird dropping clean-up service for private householders, for example where balconies in blocks of flats have become contaminated, making them unusable until they are professionally and safely cleaned. Prices for this work start at £425.
Bird dropping are not just an unsightly inconvenience. If they are given time to build up, or if they are left in specific areas, they can cause major health, environmental, legal, and economic risks.
Bird guano is toxic so should be treated as hazardous waste. Also, the clean-up process often involves working at height or in confined spaces which present added health and safety challenges.
As a specialist extreme cleaning and waste management company SafeGroup has the expertise, resources, and experience to tackle bird droppings problems of any scale in any location.
Pest birds and the guano they leave behind can cause major environmental and commercial risks that should not be under-estimated. This is why timely and regular cleaning is essential. Key risks include:
