Guano removal and Remediation
Bird and bat excrement or droppings can accumulate anywhere. Customers of Dec-Tam that are in need of our professional guano remediation services typically find the bird and bat guano in :
- abandoned buildings
- aircraft hangers
- church steeples
- elevator shafts
This buildup of droppings, feathers and debris, if left unattended can be massive in some instances. Exposure to the toxins emitted into the air from these massive build-ups can be very harmful to human beings working in and around the contaminated space. Histoplasmosis, a disease that adversely affects the lungs, can be contracted by inhaling the spores of the Histoplasmosis capsulation fungus that are emitted by large guano infestations. The disease is not contagious but it can be particularly harmful to those with suppressed immune systems.
Guano infestations can:
- initiate histoplasmosis capsulation fungus growth
- cause offensive odors
- corrode building components
- damage building facades.
Removing the guano build-up is a specialized procedure - often involving the construction of a full containment structure and technicians in full protective gear.
