My father is moving to a loft in an old deserted factory. It’s a wonderful space, but right now it is a true mess. Pigeons have had free access to parts of the loft for ten years and a floor area (part rough wooden planks, part concrete) of 60 square metres is covered with a 1-2 inch thick layer of pigeon droppings, feathers and an occasional dead pigeon. Basically, my father moved to the bottom of a giant, neglected birdcage.
I’ve read that dealing with pigeon droppings can be a serious health hazard and that anyone attempting to clean it should take precautions like sanitary airtight clothing and hepa-masks (I assume “hepa” means airtight).
Does anyone have experience with cleaning up messes like these? Where did you rent the attire? Any tips on how to go about it? Do any professional companies exist who will do this, and how do I find them?
