Animal Waste Cleaning Services

Animal Waste Cleaning

National Trauma and Crime Scene Cleaning specialise in animal waste cleanup and the disinfection of areas infected with pigeon, possums, rats, mice and other rodent droppings from homes or workplaces.

Animal waste is not something that you should attempt to clean yourself. Animal waste can carry bacteria and viruses which can seriously affect the health of yourself, your family or your tenants. For the safety of loved ones or valued employees, animal waste cleaning should be performed by experienced professionals with knowledge of the proper removal procedures.

Examples of animal waste cleanup that require specialist biohazard cleaning services include:

  • Bat or possum waste
  • Rats or mice faecal matter
  • Bird waste and pigeon faecal matter
  • Cat or dog faecal matter and urine
  • Abandoned properties that are infested with rodents or other wild animals
  • Decomposing animals in buildings
  • People whose homes are overrun with domestic animals


Faeces and urine from animals can present harmful health effects to humans and pets. Bird and bat droppings can contain fungi that can cause serious infections such as Histoplasmosis as well as Salmonella bacteria. Rodent faeces can contain the Hantavirus or  Hemorrhagic Fever.

Histoplasmosis is a respiratory disease caused by a fungus, which grows in pigeon droppings. When cleaning droppings, a person may inhale some of the fungus,  causing infection.

Salmonellosis often occurs as “food poisoning” caused by Salmonella bacteria. All species of  birds can carry Salmonella and pass it out in their faeces.

Many species of rodent carry hantaviruses. Humans can catch the disease through contact with rodent urine, saliva and faeces, by touch, contaminated food or drink, or from breathing in aerosolised particles.

People can develop Hemorrhagic Fever after exposure to urine, droppings, or saliva of infected rodents or after exposure to dust from their nests. Transmission may also occur when infected urine or these other materials are directly introduced into broken skin or onto the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, or mouth.
