Animal Dropping Decontamination
One Call Services has been helping people breathe easier, focusing on biorecovery services and mould abatement. Increasingly, One Call Services has been asked to remove another dangerous contaminant: bird, raccoon and bat excrement.
Persons working in contact with soil, especially soil enriched with bird and bat droppings are at high risk. Excrement deposits from birds and bats roosting in towers, steeples, walkways, or attics create health hazards for building occupants, visitors, employees, building service workers, and even for people simply walking down the street.
According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), histoplasmosis is an infectious disease of the lungs caused by a fungus called Histoplasma capsulatum.
Their estimate is that 50 Million people have been infected in North America with about 500,000 persons testing positive each year. In the St. Lawrence River Valley, where the infection may occur frequently, 20-30 percent of the population test positive.
One Call Services has successfully completed projects for large and small properties by removing this hazard. Our projects are completed safely and on time. We collaborate with clients to devise solutions that will reduce the risk of potential liability.
