Preventive Maintenance: Check for Birds Bird Droppings

Preventive Maintenance: Check for Birds
Pest birds cause tens of millions of dollars of damage every year to buildings, roofs, ventilation systems, and much more. Bird droppings and nesting materials which are allowed to accumulate pose a host of physical problems which can become very serious if they are not corrected immediately.  Bird droppings are very acidic in nature. They actually eat away at many substrates, especially tar-based roofing materials. Droppings which are allowed to accumulate on roofs will eat into the material and eventually cause leaks. The life expectancy of a roof can be cut in half by just a light, but continuous, application of bird droppings.  Birds will get under eaves and soffits to get out of the weather and will nest in these areas as well.

Bird droppings stain and corrode roofs and other building materials.  Pest birds cause tens of millions of dollars of damage every year to buildings, roofs, ventilation systems, and much more.
