As a leading bird control company, Aviary Bird Control Services understand the struggles property owners face when dealing with unsightly bird dropping stains on concrete surfaces. Not only do these stains detract from the aesthetic of your property but they can also pose health risks and contribute to the deterioration of concrete. In this article, we will guide you through an effective and eco-friendly method to eliminate bird dropping stains. Remember, prevention is key and ensuring your facility has adequate deterrent or exclusion devices to protect your property. When the problem becomes too overwhelming, don't hesitate to give our experts a call: 844-247-3373


The key to minimizing the impact of bird dropping stains is to act fast!. As soon as you notice the droppings, grab a hose or bucket of water and rinse the affected area. This initial wash helps remove loose debris and prevents the droppings from embedding deeper into the concrete. Concrete is porous and absorbs the liquid in droppings. Quick action reduces the likelihood of permanent stains and makes the subsequent cleaning process more effective.


Once you've rinsed the area, it's time to tackle the stubborn remnants. Equip yourself with protective gear, including gloves and goggles, to shield against potential contaminants. Create a soapy solution using a mild detergent and warm water. Using a stiff brush, scrub the stained concrete surface vigorously. The detergent helps break down the organic components of the droppings, making them easier to remove. Rinse the area again to reveal a cleaner surface.


Sawdust, baking soda, and cornstarch are excellent absorption agents that can be employed to lift residual stains from concrete. Apply a generous amount of sawdust, baking soda, or cornstarch directly onto the stained area. Do not pat dry the wash as the pressure may push the droppings into the concrete further. These substances work by absorbing the moisture and organic matter within the droppings, facilitating easier removal. Allow the absorption agent to sit for at least 30 minutes, giving it ample time to work its magic.


In some cases, a single round of cleaning may not be sufficient, especially if the bird dropping stains are deeply ingrained – repeat the process until the stains are completely gone.


Remember, while DIY methods are effective for smaller stains, large-scale bird droppings and roosting require professionals. If you find the issue overwhelming or persistent, don't hesitate to reach out to our bird control experts. Aviaway has the tools, knowledge, and experience to tackle even the most challenging bird-related issues and restore the beauty of your property.
