Use this solution either in a pressure washer, or spray directly onto the hard surfaces covered with bird droppings after doing a first pass with a garden hose.
To thoroughly disinfect you will need to let the disinfecting solution sit for several minutes (not just a couple of seconds) and it will disinfect the surface better once most of the droppings themselves are removed. (Learn more about sanitizing with bleach here.)
If you do need to do some scrubbing make sure not to use the sponge or rag for anything else besides nasty tasks in the future, such as removing more bird droppings.
You definitely don't want to spread bird dropping germs into your kitchen or bathroom, for example, by using the same sponge in these locations.
In addition, below is a video giving some instructions for pigeon dropping removal, but it is equally applicable to any type of bird droppings.
Some caution about the video though: she says to only let the bleach solution sit "for a second," but that is not enough time for disinfecting.
The bleach needs several minutes to work to actually disinfect.
Here's my advice for bird dropping stain removal from clothes, upholstery and carpet, in case it gets on these surfaces instead of a hard surface.
