How To Remove Bird Poop From Concrete

This is a very easy and quick way of cleaning those bird poop stains from concrete pathways.

Bird poop, or bird droppings, is a type of organic stain. When birds poop on your concrete surface, they leave behind a stain that contains their feces as well as their food. Berries, nuts and seeds contribute toward the stain as it soaks into the porous concrete surface. By removing the stain from the surface and drawing it out of the concrete, you can successfully clean your concrete and return it to its unstained condition. Supplies and cleaning techniques safe for concrete achieve this task without causing further damage to the surface.

What do you need?
  • Hose and mains water
  • Liquid dish-washing detergent
  • Methylated spirits
  • Natural-fiber scrub brush
 Steps:
  1. Hose off the concrete to remove top layer of bird droppings from the surface.
  2. Mix up a squirt liquid of dish-washing detergent with a good splash of methylated spirits in a bucket and fill with water.
  3. Poor the cleaning mixture onto the poop stains.
  4. Leave for five minutes.
  5. Use a natural-bristled scrub brush to loosen and remove remaining stain.
  6. Hose off and that should do it - clean concrete. If not clean enough then repeat.
