Bird guano can present serious challenges in the workplace in terms of health and the environment. It can even cause psittacosis which can present serious risks to the health of those who ingest fragments of this material through touch or the breathing in of dust particles, causing decreased lung function and pneumonia.
At particular risk are construction workers involved in the renovation of buildings that have remained unoccupied or open to the elements for some time, and where large quantities of guano have been allowed to accumulate.
To enable companies to comply with COSHH regulations, Orca Cleaning Services has developed a quick and effective way of removing this toxic material from the exterior of walls, roofs, gutters, window shelves, high-level walkways and interior surfaces. Using specially developed solutions, this harmful waste is firstly neutralised then removed, bagged and safely disposed of by Orca’s team of technicians using a range of cleaning equipment and techniques.
Once the guano has been safely removed and any risk to health eliminated, the Orca team can provide and install a range of systems designed to deter roosting and consequent fowling, including the installation of wire structures that are too narrow for birds to roost upon but do not detract from the building’s appearance.
