The first job was to remove the pigeons from their roost sites and temporarily block the entrance points. Once this was done the whole staircase and ledges were sprayed with PX-Ornikill. By disinfecting all the areas we have greatly reduced the risk of disease transfer.
Pigeons are known to carry ornithosis, psittacosis, histoplasmosis, salmonellosis and other serious diseases.
As you can imagine a thorough clean is needed to remove all the pigeon guano, nests and debris from every level of the staircase.
You can see from the photos what a difference professional cleaning makes.
Not only have we removed the pigeon droppings but we have made this a cleaner and safer environment to be used in case of an emergency.
