What kind of damage do pigeons cause in an attic?
Pigeons can bring a lot of damage in your attic through their droppings alone. The feces of the birds are acidic by nature. They will eat at any substrates, particularly the tar of the based roofing materials. Their feces that will accommodate on the roof will eat the substance and will eventually make the roof leak. The life span of the warehouse roof may be cut into ½ if the birds will continue to poop in the same place. There is this one instance in Arizona wherein the pigeon feces have accumulated and that brought the gas station covering to breakdown, this occurred in 2008.
The pigeons will nest in your roof and they will damage the rain gutters, corners of the roofs where the drains are situated. Some warehouses yearly suffer from a great extent of damage, more roofs collapsed when the drainage structures are congested than the water is enabled to just rise to more than 6 inches high. The distorted ridge that will end up in the death or greater physical damages may place a company at risk of bankruptcy. The acidic feces of the pigeons can do a lot of damage to the Ac units, siding insulation and industrial machines as well. It is not just the equipment that is being damaged, by the laborers that are unprotected to the danger of being exposed every time they work using the machines.
The nesting materials of the pigeons are flammable. They can cause fire since they use twigs, leaves and straws. The dried feces can add up to the flammable materials since if it piles up, it can cause some kind of gas that will make the machines and other materials risky of having a fire. Some electronic signal corporations blame the nests of the pigeons for most of the fires in the area. The nest of the birds can also extent illnesses through the vent and the chimneys, however, that can block the flow of the air and it may result in a very risky outcome. Do you know that there was a family that died because of carbon monoxide poisoning before the Christmas eve of 1995? That was because of the ventilation structure of the fireplace has been clogged by the roost of the pigeons.
The birds can also damage the finishes of the cars. Their feces may eat the shielding covering and the paint of the cars. The longer the feces stay in the paint; the more damage it will do. They can also damage the food and the products just by the feces. The droppings of the pigeons can actually the plastics that have been molded in the factories, they can even ruin anything such as chemicals that are still being manufactured and new and old paint jobs of the aircraft. They can also cause food contamination in factories, with that in mind, they can waste more than a million dollars just because of their feces.
