Pigeon & Bat Guano (Droppings) Removal

Bird & Bat guano and debris is extremely hazardous and it is essential that its removal is dealt with appropriately, otherwise these particles can become airborne or contaminate water courses.

At Gwella, we have highly trained technicians who are fully competent in the removal of bird droppings and the cleaning of contaminated areas.

These droppings contain numerous diseases which can be contained in airborne particles or droplets of moisture which can be breathed-in or contaminate skin when disturbed.

Being acidic, guano can potentially lead to corrosion of surfaces if not removed in its entirety, leading to expensive replacement works on roofing materials and re-decoration of painted surfaces.

Hoarding Disorder cleaning

House Cleans – Hoarding Disorder

A hoarding disorder is where someone acquires an excessive number of items and stores them in a chaotic manner, usually resulting in unmanageable amounts of clutter. The items can be of little or no monetary value.

Hoarding disorders are challenging for social landlords as many tenants who hoard may also be breaching their tenancy agreement. They also frequently do not see it as a problem, or have little awareness of how it’s affecting their life or the lives of others. If they do realise they may have a hoarding disorder, they are often reluctant to seek help because they feel extremely ashamed, humiliated or guilty about it.

Sadly, we are being asked by councils and housing associations to visit more and more hoarding disorder cleaning jobs recently. It is becoming a common job for our Gwella team, so we are never easily shocked and approach each and every job without prejudice and provide a thorough cleaning service throughout.

Chromate Cleaning

Our specialist teams undertake cleans to materials which are dangerous to health, such as hexavalent chromium, which can be found in a wide range of industries and used for the following;

  • chromate pigments in dyes
  • paints, inks, and plastics
  • chromates added as anti-corrosive agents to paints, primers and other surface coatings
  • particles released during smelting of ferrochromium ore
  • fumes from welding stainless steel or nonferrous chromium alloys

Workplace exposure to hexavalent chromium may cause the following health effects:

  • lung cancer in workers who breathe airborne hexavalent chromium
  • irritation or damage to the nose, throat, and lung (respiratory tract) if hexavalent chromium is breathed at high levels
  • irritation or damage to the eyes and skin if hexavalent chromium contacts these organs in high concentrations

When undertaking this type of cleaning works it is essential we keep our employees safe and provide them with the relevant personal respiratory and protective equipment. Works are undertaken within secured environments to protect others whilst the work is being undertaken.

Employees are subject to medical examinations, to enable us to monitor the health of our employees and the level of their exposure.
