Biohazard Pigeon Feces Clean Up Pigeon Feces Clean Up

SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence responded to a unique cleaning situation where a chimney became the home to some pigeons in a commercial building. Pigeon droppings may pose a health hazard to the public and the feces removal needed to be taken care of immediately. Pigeons can carry diseases and parasites that can be transmitted to humans including histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis and psittacosis. SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence understood their concern and put together a safe action plan for removal. A pigeon can produce 25 pounds of droppings a year and this chimney was filled. The SERVPRO professionals donned on their personal protective equipment and followed a strict protocol for removal. All areas were treated with an antimicrobial product to kill and disease. A 10-yard dumpster was filled with over 750 pounds of pigeon feces. SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence has the training and expertise to help make it “Like it never even happened.” Have Questions?

Fire Damage SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence Responds to a Restaurant Fire SERVPRO of Amherst saves the day. Breakfast is served!

No one wants to miss out on a delicious breakfast at their favorite restaurant but when fire breaks out, it’s important to know who to call for fast, efficient and professional service. It was 4:30 am when the prep cook started to fire up the fryers and the grills for their usual busy morning feeding their customers. When the fire department arrived, the restaurant owner knew it was their time being served. The fire department quickly put out the flames and referred SERVPRO of Amherst to assist with the next step of cleaning up the water and soot damaged. SERVPRO of Amherst got the call and quickly dispatched 2 crews to the site. The production manager quickly sprang into action setting up the crew to extract water from the floor and remove the water from the kitchen equipment. The adjuster arrived and told the customer he would most likely be closed for at least a week. Knowing the importance of customer service, the SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence crews brought in a 3rd crew and worked late hours. The restaurant was opened and running in 2 days. We are open 24 hours a day to get your Amherst business back up and running. Call Today SERVPRO of Amherst/Clarence 716-639-8687
