    Bird Aviary Cleaning Guide

    Protect your aviary birds by focusing on this important task at least once a week. However, if you find time is limited, it's more important to carry out a thorough clean over a longer period of time rather than an unfocused, short, regular clean that is unlikely to remove any harmful bacteria.

    Although cleaning an aviary may not be the most desirable job in the world, there are ways in which you can make the process a lot easier. First of all, ensure the floor of the aviary is completely covered with old newspaper or an old blanket that can easily pick up any bird droppings or spilt food. This newspaper or litter should be replaced regularly - this will help make the thorough clean a far more hassle-free experience.

    Once you have removed this covering, concentrate on cleaning the walls and floor of the aviary. Try and be methodical in your approach to cleaning; leave no stone unturned. Use a sponge and soap or washing up liquid and a hot bucket of water.

    Finally, use a cloth and spray bottle on a daily basis for a quick, instant clean. This will help remove any fresh marks on side of the bird aviary and make the detailed clean less traumatic. Always ensure aviary birds are at a safe distance from the cleaning process.
