HAZARDOUS MATERIAL TESTING & REMOVAL
What is HAZARDOUS MATERIAL?
Hazardous material is any item or agent (biological, chemical, radiological, and/or physical), which has the potential to cause harm to humans, animals, or the environment, either by itself or through interaction with other factors.
SAFE Guano removal
Guano (rodent, bird & bat feces) and other organic matter (feathers, bones, body parts, carcasses, etc.) pose a health threat to human beings who come in contact with them or inhale the airborne particles from them. Every precaution should be taken to ensure that workers and building occupants are protected from the diseases carried or transported by rodents, birds &/or bats.
Where is it found?
If you have bats in the attic of your home or building, then you have large piles of guano, or waste, as well. Besides making your house smell bad, guano can cause a lung infection called histoplasmosis that is caused by inhaling the spores of a fungus that is carried in bat guano. Pests, such as cockroaches, are also attracted to guano, causing even more infestation. In addition, the droppings and urine can corrode wood and drywall.
Exposure to rodent, bird & bat droppings and nesting materials under ideal conditions can result in a number of diseases, including histoplasmosis, Newcastle disease, cryptococcosis, pseudotuberculosis and other avian transmitted diseases. Another major condition of concern would be hypersensitivity pneumonitis. This disease is generally contracted by inhaling a specific type of bacteria (thermophilic actinomycetes). The presence of nesting birds in any portion of a building HVAC system, and the potential introduction of the associated diseases that they cause, become a real concern.
These possibilities demonstrate why disinfecting rodent-infested areas is so important in preventing transmission of the virus.
