Most buildings require regular maintenance, just like a car, home or any other structure. Regular maintenance keeps the buildings from deteriorating. No matter what size the building is, certain tasks need to be performed to ensure that there is proper operation of things such as heating, cooling, air conditioning systems and ventilation. These areas also need to meet health and safety codes. Bird deterrents that are installed properly will prevent nesting materials and the bird’s droppings from damaging these important systems and to ensure that they continue working properly without the added cost of repairing and replacing them due to the hazardous and damaging bird materials.
The same is true for outdoor areas where the public may walk, or take their morning, afternoon and lunch breaks. Bird deterrents are needed to keep the birds from leaving their droppings all over the tables and chairs used by employees and customers. The bird droppings contaminate where they land, including drinking fountains, drains and grass areas. New droppings are also very slippery and can be a liability issue should someone slip and fall. The droppings also harbor diseases that can be transmitted to humans.
Security cameras and light posts also should be protected with a bird control method so that the building and business do not become laden with droppings and make for an unwelcome environment. The nesting materials and droppings can also obscure and render the safety cameras inoperable. The costs of repair and lack of proper security can lead to more costs due to lack of bird control.
Roofs, signage and exterior facades can also be seriously damaged by pest-bird droppings and nesting materials. Roofs, particularly, can be exorbitantly expensive to repair or replace. The acid in bird droppings can quickly eat into painted signs and plastic, ruin paint, artwork, statues and other architectural values on the building. All the more reason to invest in bird deterrents before damage transpires.
Bird Deterrent Options
There are numerous bird deterrent methods to choose from. Bird spikes, bird slopes, visual scare devices and sound bird control units to only name a few. Investing in a low cost bird control method is very cost effective and will protect the property from the unwanted advances of the pest birds.
