How to Keep a Hog Farm Clean With a Hot Water Pressure Washer

Is there anything more important for a hog farmer right now than keeping their farm clean? There are so many things to protect right now, from workers to hogs to the bottom line. It might seem impossible to keep your farm clean, but with the right hot water pressure washing equipment and the right protocol, you might be surprised by how much easier it could be.

Once you have read our simple guide to keeping a hog farm clean, contact Hydro Tek at 800-274-9376 to get the equipment necessary to make the job much easier.

Your Farm and Your Livestock Areas Must Be Separate

First and foremost, you want to make sure that your livestock areas and farm areas are kept as far away from each other as possible. Yes, there are surely local recommendations for the distance between these areas – and there might even be regulations to follow in your area – but remember that these are just a starting point. With today’s world, it is wise to keep these spots as far away as possible to keep your space clean, safe, and hygienic.

Natural Water Sources Are Not Always the Answer

It is not uncommon for a hog farm to use natural water. This might seem smart from a financial and environmental standpoint, but remember that having large natural water sources is going to attack animals, birds, and pests. This can lead to contamination that is impossible to contain – especially if you have free-range breeding. You might consider water recycling options as a solution.

Have One Route for Ingoing and One for Outgoing

This is not always possible, but if you can have a separate route for incoming vehicles and one for outgoing vehicles, you will go a long way toward reducing cross-contamination. Look to avoid direct contact between vehicles and sensitize zones such as loading and unloading areas. When you do deep clean these areas, make sure you are providing a completely different ingoing and outgoing route cleaning.

Separate Controlled Access Zones from Restricted Zones and Make Those Zones Clearly Delineated

You likely have different zones at your farm. For example, you might have zones that are accessible only to employees and those that are available only to owners. Make sure these zones are kept entirely separate. One of the most important steps in doing so is to clearly delineate which is which. You can use gates, fences, signs – whatever it takes.

You Have Found Company That Can Help You Find the Right Equipment

When it comes to keeping your hog farm clean, it all starts with the right equipment.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
