The Hidden Dangers of Guano: Why Professional Removal is Essential
Guano, a term commonly associated with the droppings of birds and bats, is something many business and property owners encounter but may underestimate. While it can be a source of potent fertiliser due to its high nitrogen, phosphate, and potassium content, it also poses significant health risks and structural dangers if not managed properly. That’s where professional removal comes in, and where the expertise of a company like IMS Ltd shines.
Understanding the Risk
Birds and bats, particularly in larger populations, can produce significant quantities of guano over time. As guano accumulates, it can begin to harbor harmful fungi and parasites. One of the most well-known of these is Histoplasma capsulatum, a fungus that thrives in guano and can cause a respiratory disease called histoplasmosis in humans when inhaled.
Beyond the health risks, guano poses structural problems too. The accumulation of droppings can damage buildings, machinery, vehicles, and more. The acidic nature of guano can lead to the corrosion of metal and stonework, leading to costly repairs if not addressed promptly.
Why Professional Removal is Essential
While it might seem manageable, guano removal is not a task for the unprepared. Personal protective equipment is essential to protect against potential diseases. Moreover, without the right experience and tools, it can be challenging to fully remove guano and decontaminate the area.
