As a contractor, you’ve learned that one of the best ways to increase revenue is to increase the number of services you offer your customers. And one of the most revenue enhancing services you can offer today is bird control. Regardless of the size or type of building, and no matter what the job, bird proofing is a vital part of protecting any building or structure from the damages imposed by pest birds.
Bird proofing is essential to protect a building’s heating, cooling, ventilation, and air conditioning system from falling victim to the damage caused by bird droppings, bird nests and other bird related debris. Your customers know that these systems can be very costly to repair or replace.
The same holds true for a building’s plumbing systems, drains, drinking fountains, and sprinkler systems. Even the timers that control them must be kept free of bird droppings and other debris to function properly. Likewise, outdoor walkways, tables and chairs used by employees should also be kept free of disease-carrying bird droppings lest they contaminate these and other areas.
Outside lighting and security systems must be kept clear and fully functional to ensure the safety of visitors, customers and employees. Bird droppings and other bird debris can obscure and render these systems ineffective unless bird-proofing measures are installed. Similarly, outer locks, doors and windows can seize up, leaving gaps in a building’s security and necessitating expensive repairs.
What’s more, many property owners have seen their roofs, exterior facades and signage permanently damaged by pest-bird droppings and nesting materials. The acid in bird droppings can quickly eat into painted signs and plastic moldings, and they can crumble stone facades. All the more reason your customers will be asking if you also provide bird-proofing services.
