As you care creating your poultry farm cleaning protocol, there are some principles to carefully consider.

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.
