Damage Caused By Bird Droppings/Get Rid Of Pigeons

The life expectancy of a rooftop, commercial or residential, can be cut in half by just a light, but continuous, application of bird droppings. This light dusting of bird dropping can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs or an entire roof top replacement. Bird droppings are naturally acidic and the bird droppings actually eat away at most substrates, especially tar-based roofing materials. When bird droppings are allowed to accumulate on rooftops, they eat into the material and eventually cause leaks; feel free to contact Pest Bird Management right now.

Bird Nest/ Water Damage/ How To Keep Birds Away!

Bird Droppings/ Collapsing Ceilings/ Get Rid Of Pigeons

Pigeons enter attics of houses, apartments, warehouses, restaurants and other buildings through openings that are not sealed off properly. In most scenarios the pigeons will set up home in these protected areas and start to build nests, all the time discarding bird droppings. Over time the weight of the droppings becomes so great that the actual ceiling collapses. You would guess that this type of occurrence would be extremely rare but it happens with alarming frequency.

Fires Started By Bird Nests/ How To Keep Birds Away!

Nesting materials such as Straw, twigs and dried droppings are usually very flammable due to their dry nature. When birds build their nests inside fire place ducts, electric signs or other areas where the nesting materials may be introduced to fire, there is a great risk of property damage. Sign companies that own electric signs blame bird nests for most of their sign fires.

Bird Nests Blocked Ventilation System/ Get Rid Of Pigeons

Bird nests built in chimneys and ventilation systems can not only spread diseases through the system, but can actually block airflow which can have horrible consequences. A bird’s nest was almost lethal in a town in Dodgeville, Wisconsin, when eight people were taken to hospital after suffering carbon monoxide poisoning – a bird’s nest was blocking an outside air intake, causing carbon monoxide levels to rise in the house.
