How to Improve The Cleaning Process in Your Poultry House

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Nov 15, 2018

In order to enjoy proper poultry house and ventilation system sanitation, you need significant manpower. While the task of keeping poultry houses and hatcheries clean will always be a job that requires diligent effort, there are several steps you can take to streamline your process. Here are some tips for making it easier to keep your poultry house, ventilation system, or hatchery clean.


Develop a regimented plan and stick to it carefully


When you’re looking to improve the cleaning process in your poultry house, you’ll want to ensure you’re taking careful notes about how, specifically, you’re cleaning the area. You should detail exactly when you’ll dive into sanitizing your building and ventilation system, as well as notes on each staff member’s roles in this undertaking. There should be no lingering questions about who’s cleaned what, what remains incomplete, and when you’ll need to get to work again. Without a written plan, you can expect to see a lapse in poultry house sanitation.


Tackle feeding and water systems


As you’re moving through your cleaning process, don’t overlook the importance of tending to water and feed lines. As you’re removing equipment from the house during your sanitation process, be sure to clean water and feed lines thoroughly as well.


Don’t skip over external areas


While the inside of the poultry house should get a large majority of your attention as you commit to maintaining sanitation levels, don’t overlook the exterior components of your poultry house. Air inlet vents are especially important during the sanitation process. . If you have light-traps, you may want to consider using a commercial grade blower before washing.


Choose your products carefully


When you’re trying to clean tunnel fans, water lines, and air inlet vents, rely on a product such as SWASH Dust-RepelTM. The sustainable product is non-corrosive and non-carcinogenic. It’s also staff-friendly, meaning that it reduces the rigorous work required of your staff in order to keep poultry houses at ideal sanitation levels. Additionally, you’ll enjoy a 30-50% reduction in water usage, resulting in lower bills.




Just like you want to utilize the right products to improve the cleaning process in poultry houses, maintaining proper sanitation in hatcheries is equally important. Fortunately, proper product selection can help. SWASH HouseTM can serve as a powerful part of your cleaning regimen. The liquid is neither corrosive nor acidic, and is easily applied to chick and poult trays in order to break down organic matter and boost sanitation levels.
