How to clean bird droppings

Birds in SoffitsBird droppings accumulating on stone

Anyone who has unwittingly parked their car below a flock of birds knows just how messy they can get. Pigeon, starling and sparrow droppings contain high amounts of corrosive uric acid that can stain and damage building materials. If birds are roosting in or on your home, it takes little time for their droppings accumulate on siding, brick, metal and stone. If left too long, bird feces can cause irreversible damage resulting in costly repairs. The easiest way to prevent damage to your home is to quickly remove, exclude and deter birds from your property.

In addition to being highly corrosive, bird poop can also create health risks for humans and pets. The droppings of pigeons, starling and sparrows can contain a fungal disease called histoplasmosis.  Exposure to bird roosts and nests that are heavily contaminated with dangerous fungal spores increases the chance of inhalation. Humans are most at risk for infection when dry bird feces become airborne and travel through air vents and open windows.

Personal protective should always be worn when cleaning and decontaminating bird roosts and nests. Skedaddle has the experience and know-how to safely remove and eliminate the risk. Call us today 1-888-592-0387.
