The Most Important Principles of Poultry Farm Cleaning

As you care creating your poultry farm cleaning protocol, there are some principles to carefully consider. At Hydro Tek we offer all the power washing equipment you could ever need but there are other factors in play. Keep reading to learn more about them and then contact us at 800-274-9376 if you would like to get started finding the right equipment and protocol.

Having Enough Room for Your System to Work Effectively

First and foremost, you must assure that you have the room to utilize the right system. For example, a popular option, the Danish system, involves an anteroom that separates the clean interior of the production area from the outside. This requires quite a bit of room if you want it to work effectively.

Some poultry farms will elect to build facilities for storing and changing from clean to dirty footwear and for other purposes if the farm is not large enough for the Danish system. Still, this requires the right cleaning equipment and clear signage to ensure everyone follows the rules.

Choosing Floors That Can Be Washed

The floors used inside a chicken house must be washable. If they are not, then consider replacing them or refinishing them so that they are washable. You will need to remove grime from the floor on a regular basis, using mops, brooms, and pressure washing. This helps prevent bacteria and viruses from having a place to grow and thrive. Linoleum is a good flooring option. If you have concrete, resurface it with garage point or a sealant to make it easier to wash.

Having the Right Sized Protective Equipment

If you have protective equipment that is too big then it will not work as well as it should. Likewise, if it is too small, it will not work as well as it should. We suggest that if you have visitors, you have a variety of PPE sizes to ensure everyone has access to what they need. Your staff should only wear PPE that fits well. This is essential to proper cleaning.

Ensuring Air Flow is Correct

Fans in your poultry farm should push air from the poultry house outside, or at least away from clean areas. You do not want dirt and dust flowing from a dirty area to a clean area as it is just another way to contaminate said clean area.

We Can Help You Get the Right Equipment

Of course, one of the most important aspects of poultry farm cleaning is ensuring that you have the right equipment. At Hydro Tek we can help you do that.

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.
