Serious Health Hazard
Guano presents a serious health hazard as it contains bacteria, viruses and parasites. Two notable guano related diseases which are highlighted on the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) Website are Psittacosis and Salmonella. Psittacosis is an infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia Psittaci. It is mainly associated with parrots and other similar species but it does affect other birds, including pigeons. The symptoms are commonly a flu-like illness and pneumonia. Salmonella may also be present in some bird droppings. It is a bacterial infection that can cause significant diarrhoea.
Efficient and Effective Guano Cleaning
Another nasty consequence of guano or bird droppings is that it can create a real slip and trip hazard which could easily result in serious injury and damage.
Added to that, bird guano is acidic and can damage and permanently stain the fabric of buildings leaving them vulnerable and in need of repair. Limestone structures and Plastisol type cladding panels are particularly at risk.
