How Do I Clean & Remove Bird Poop From My Windows? | BCS Cleaning Specialists

It’s always rather irritated me that birds insist on pooping on the OUTSIDE of the window pane – you know, in just the spot where it’s hardest to reach without a giant ladder, extraordinary balancing skills and an arsenal of buckets, mops and non-scratchy scratchy products. Also, how do they even hit the window? I mean, it’s not like their butts are on the side of their bodies! It’s really quite a feat of engineering that they even manage to poop sideways while in mid-flight. I could go on, but I shall restrain myself. Also, I realize the alternative to them pooping outside is that they would poop INSIDE, which raises with it a whole host of other issues, like for example, ew.

The easiest way to remove the usually-crusty remains of a bird’s breakfast is to use a steam cleaning machine. That being said, who is realistically going to clamber up the side of a house while balance precariously on a ladder and wielding an intermittently-puffing piece of machinery? Apart from us trained gymnasts at BCS, of course.

If the above prospect doesn’t much appeal to you, the second best way would be to use a bucket of warm water with a few drops of dishwashing detergent and a squirt of white vinegar. Use a soft, clean, microfiber cloth soaked in the cleaning solution and hold it on the birdy poop for a few seconds to loosen it. Wipe any solids off with a clean side of the cloth. Wipe clean with a clean, damp chamois cloth. And hey presto, good as new! 

Of course, there’s always the chance that all this scrubbing on the side of a ladder will lead to sudden death or a nasty headache at the very least, so our recommendation is to leave the bird business where it is and give BCS a call at 801 561 1730. We’ll have the bird innards off your glass in a New York minute, with no death required!

I've used other local franchise companies in the past and the attention to detail was always lacking. BCS's attention to detail is consistently good, they show up when they say and their service is much more personal than the larger franchises. Happy with their job everytime.
