Have you noticed piles of faecal material (like the one in the photo) around your building or home? If so then you probably have bats! You will notice also that the faeces may have a shiny speckled appearance (from all the insect wings) and will crumble like dust when touched.
Guano is another term used for bat droppings. Bat guano carries fungal spores that cause Histoplasmosis which can be fatal to humans. Histoplasmosis is contracted as a result of inhaling faecal dust matter from the droppings. Bat guano must be handled similarly to asbestos since the threat of disease is high. Our professional building cleaners at Get It Clean have a very specific plan of action when it comes to removing the guano.
- Use appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), including a HEPA filter mask.
- Wet down the affected area with a specially made microban germicidal cleaner concentrate and allow it to break down the guano.
- Our building washing team will wash away all the matter and thoroughly rinse all affected surfaces to restore your building to a bat guano free building!
Buildings where bats have resided in or around for years can suffer incredible damage from guano and urine left behind. The key to minimal damage is regular cleaning and maintenance. Get It Clean, Brisbane’s premier house washing and commercial building washing company, is happy to advise you if you have a problem like this or provide you with a quotation to have it removed.
