On the other hand, in finishing phase, either cold or hot water can be used. Regardless of the temperature, high pressure and high water volume must be applied. We highly recommend a machine of 4000 PSI or higher and 4 gallons per minute or higher. Rotating nozzle is also recommended because it will allow the user to clean faster by 30% or more. Double check the type of surface you are pressure washing since only concrete floors can withstand that kind of pressure. In case you have a softer floor, use a unit with 3000 PSI and 5 GPM or more. In that case do not use the rotating (turbo) nozzle.
You should start by clearing the pens of animals, feed, hay and anything else that could get washed away. Next, you pre-treat the area with detergents safe for the animals. Leave that on floor about a half-hour. Next, you pressure wash from the top down, paying attention to corners and crevices, as every nook and cranny should be cleaned. You may have to scrub anything that is caked on. Next, the pen is rinsed and let dry. After it is dry, it can be disinfected.
On farm equipment, a pressure washer with at least a 3000-PSI is recommended. The high pressure washers will allow fast and easy dirt removal. Chemical injection power machine should be used since the cleaning solutions are the ones who will soften the grease and let the pressure washer wash it away. When you are applying chemical spray from the bottom and work towards the top of the equipment you are cleaning. When rinsing start at the top and work your way downwards. Use extra caution when power washing around the bearings. High pressure could potentially force water into the bearing assembly and cause rust and premature bearing failure. Use 45Âº nozzles when working around the engine compartment to avoid possible damage. Never use the rotating nozzle when washing your equipment. It will dent and scar the surface.
So whether you have cattle or dairy cows, or chicken or turkey, a pressure washer is definitely a solution on your farm for maximizing safety of all.
