External Building Decontamination

Our expert team of rope access technicians and MEWP operators can easily reach every external area of a building and perform complete decontamination of hazardous substances.

Avisan provides a complete decontamination solution, regardless of the height of the affected area or the type of building. Our team of professional rope access technicians can safely scale to any height and have the training, experience and skills to perform a comprehensive decontamination service to rid areas of hazardous substances.

There are many reasons why an area may have to be professionally decontaminated. Fortunately, our IRATA & IPAF qualified rope access technicians are not only able to safely and efficiently reach any external area, but they can clean and decontaminate a range of substances to the highest standards, including:

Bird Guano (Droppings)

Animal Excreta

Other Biological/Fungal Matter

Noxious Chemicals

Sharps Removal & Disposal

The Importance Of Professional Decontamination

Unless your building has proper bird management solutions in place, it will be liable to problems that arise with bird infestation. Wherever birds nest and roost they leave bird guano, which contains uric acid and which itself can cause health hazards to the occupants of the building. The inhalation of dust or water droplets that contain bird excreta can lead to several diseases, which is why proper decontamination of an affected area is so important. Birds can spread diseases like salmonella and histoplasmosis (which causes lung problems) through their droppings. You don’t need to touch the droppings, it’s enough to just breathe in the airborne particles. Other diseases include Chlamydiosis, Psittacosis, Cryptococcosis, Campylobacter, Salmonellosis, Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis, Erysipelas, and E. coli. Particularly when dry, guano can be a risk to the health of your customers and staff and where possible should be decontaminated as soon as possible using methods in accordance with HSE guidelines, PPE & relevant risk assessments. This also applies to areas that have been affected by animal waste, fungal matter and any noxious chemicals that have leaked onto an external surface.

Avisan’s team of professional rope access technicians are the ideal solution to this problem, as not only are they able to easily reach any affected area, but they also have the training, tools, equipment, experience and know-how to safely, effectively and quickly eradicate and decontaminate any areas affected by bird guano.
