Once we have safely removed the birds from your property, the next step in our process is to thoroughly clean and clear their roosting and nesting sites. Birds can cause costly damage to your home in just a short amount of time and leave behind harmful bacteria and diseases. Skedaddle technicians are trained to safely remove all bird damage and waste without spreading bacteria throughout your home or business. The best way to keep your family safe and remove the birds properly is to hire professionals with extensive knowledge and experience handling harmful contaminants. After our technicians have assessed the level of clean-up necessary, we will provide you with sanitizing options to make your home safe again.
The level of damage is different with each bird removal process due to the following factors:
- The number of birds present.
- The length of time the birds have been there.
- Where they are located.
Why It’s Important to Remove Bird Nests
When birds nest inside your soffit, attic or vents they can make things pretty messy. Skedaddle technicians are trained in roof and ladder safety to help them gain access to these hard to reach places. The size and amount of nesting material that has been introduced to your home can be hard to judge from the ground. In most cases a true evaluation will involve removing vent covers, soffit panels or climbing inside the attic. Once we have gained access to the nest, we can begin safely removing it.
Bird nests are usually full of smelly droppings that can lead to odor issues inside your home. In addition to birds, the nests are also home to tiny insects called bird mites. These ectoparasites feed on the birds’ blood and are concentrated inside the nest where the birds spend their time. By clearing out the nest and treating the area, Skedaddle technicians can prevent bird mites from migrating into your home once their host has been removed.
The risk of fire is often overlooked when it comes to birds. For example, when starlings nest inside vents for clothes, dryers, or bathroom and kitchen fans, they prevent proper airflow and could damage the fan or lead to a fire. A vent duct packed with straw, twigs and grass will not function properly. Clearing out the vent or replacing the duct entirely ensures that the appliances inside your home will continue to function properly.
Why Hire a Professional for Bird Nest Removal
If bird activity has left you with a mess on the exterior of your home it is best to act quickly. Bird droppings are very acidic and in high concentrations can stain balconies, brick and siding.
Skedaddle technicians have the training and equipment needed to safely access the highest points of your home to scrub away droppings, leaving your siding and brick stain free from the highly corrosive qualities of bird droppings. We will also clean your roof and eavestrough of any nesting material that could block the flow of water and lead to property damage.
By hiring a professional to remove bird nests from your home, you avoid the health risks associated with bird droppings. When cleaning up and disturbing nests, many of the health hazards found in the droppings can become airborne. The most serious safety risk associated with bird droppings is Histoplasmosis, a respiratory infection that can develop from inhaling fungal spores found in their excrement. Skedaddle technicians have the training and protective equipment needed to properly handle bird nests and prevent further contaminating your home. Our thorough cleaning and clearing process ensures that your home is sanitized and your family is protected from harmful bacteria.
