blog / Cleaning Tips and Tricks




Nowadays, the agricultural industry is required to meet high hygiene standards. Not only is cleanliness a question of appearance, but the health of crops and livestock is at stake. Excess dirt, grime, and any type of contamination can be passed from the farm to end-consumer products if producers don’t pay enough attention to regularly cleaning equipment and farm surroundings. It’s a big job, but high-pressure washers have been specially designed for cleaning up big areas and equipment. Just some of the areas that high-pressure washers can clean quickly and thoroughly include:

  • Livestock pens
  • Dairy milking areas
  • Poultry houses
  • Tractors and agricultural equipment
  • Produce storage areas
  • Silos

This list could go on, as farms and agricultural complexes are large, complex areas with a lot of cleaning needs. We will talk here about three main categories where high-pressure washers can help.

1. High-pressure washers for cleaning agricultural equipment

Agricultural equipment covers a broad range of vehicles and machinery from combine harvesters, animal transportation trucks, and tractors to plows, balers, and irrigation systems. Because they work in dirty environments, they naturally pick up considerable amounts of dirt, grease, mud, pesticides, manure, dust, etc. every day. Without regular cleaning, all this dirt can build up within these important pieces of machinery, leading to lower performance, breakdowns, and high maintenance or replacement costs. In addition to the equipment itself, without regular cleaning, cross-contamination between fields and crops can be a problem too. High-pressure washers can help reduce these costs and risks.

2. High-pressure cleaners for cleaning livestock holding areas

The World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) reports that livestock animals make up about 40% of global agricultural value, supporting the livelihoods of approximately one out of every five people in the world.¹ They also report that the spread of diseases among livestock is increasing. One way to address this issue is to improve livestock hygiene. High-pressure washers can reduce contamination and disease in livestock holding areas. They can completely and efficiently remove dirt, mud, and animal excrement from these environments, thereby improving the living conditions of livestock in a variety of farm settings.

3. Pressure washers for cleaning agricultural structures

Agricultural facilities have a wide range of structures and buildings to keep clean. From silos and bins to processing facilities and the areas where produce, milk, eggs, etc. are stored all of these areas must be cleaned regularly to protect the hygiene of the end product. High-pressure washers can provide the precision and power needed to clean these areas quickly and efficiently.
