We have the opportunity to wash all the hog houses we can handle. Anyone ever done any?

It's the inside, not the outside. Alot of crap, but money's money

I love making extra bacon. I'd buy tall boots and do what Eric said!
If there are a ton of them it might pose a super opportunity for you.

Have a separate rig for this,..Make it 8-10 GPM ,.or even more if you want to handle larger (1/2") hose.,..and can feed it the pump. This type work is where GPM will shine,..and you'll be glad to have it. I would think hot water would be a big plus as well,..but not as much as GPM.

And buy a good respirator,. and a full HAZMAT type suit,...your eyes will be burning otherwise and you may also oipen yourself up to some weird pig brn air disease.

Also,.make sure the water has somewhere to go,..

Are you washing the inside or the outsides?
What is the material of these structures? Metal?
Drainage?
Flooring is dirt or concrete?

Wonder if there's a hazardous materials disposal fee, special licenses, USDA, FDA, local laws and regulations to follow, extra insurance..

This isn't like roof cleaning where there is no or little regulations to follow. This is part of the food chain and environmental impact issues may not be worth doing.
You could sell the crap as fertilizer to another farm.
I'd assume no S-hypo cause with the amount of ammonia and acid in the muck creating a cloud of poisonous gas you'd kill the herd .

Inquire with others in the agricultural and livestock fields for advice. Don't rely on info here. A single violation can e'ff you for life. ($$$$$$$$)

 Yes, if we get them, we will have to upgrade for sure. These houses/barns are 150 foot long, but some are 300 foot long. Under each one are 4 chambers  (2 on each half). They all lead to a middle tank that then goes out to the lagoon. Their are 80 of these houses that we could possibly get that would need cleaning every 4 months. 1-3 at a time as piglets come in. It's a pretty cool set up. Each house is rotated in and out. Every week there will be working there.

Best part is it is a year round gig. Those pigs crap just as much in the winter, as summer. Lolol

Thier is no way we can do them all without hiring on some employees

Their will never be pigs their when I wash. Once they are big enough to go the the processing plant they come get every hog, and call me to come wash the house, because there will be piglets coming within the week, to start the whole process over again.

I wash, then spray to sanitize.

Look up Jim Housman on FB. I've met him at a couple of UAMCC events, and Hog Houses are his specialty. He is a UAMCC member and I believe located in Iowa.

I also found this:


I own my own business of washing hog barns .. Its All i do Nothing but hog barns ..

I like it .. and the other guy is right when you get a job Do it right .. It pays to spend the extra Hr. walking the barn looking for the little stuff..

Wash the roof. wash the feeders .. Both sides of the slats . Wash the fans .. doors EVERY THING .. Me and my hired man can wash a 1200 head barn is 6 hr.

When you disinfect the barn Dont short cut it Get in every pin .. I charge 50 buck to disinfect and the barn owner supply's the disinfectent .. Do cover your face .. it will burn your eyes

Iowa Dnr website has all the address of every barn in iowa .. maps and all who own's them how many pigs and so on .. .

I started by getting business cards that looked good .. And driving to every barn in the county .. leaving cards on every hog barn door. stoping at houses .. talking ..
then the next county .. i have been to over 300 barns . this year. i have washed 70 barns this year..

I charge 33cents per Head Space.. (larger than 1000 head)
as much as $1.00 A HEAD FOR Small barns ..
I tell my customers I do the job thair way not mine.. and I will come back with out question if not right ..
Show up on time if not early ..
Show up befor the sun is up
There farmers not bankers ..
Know what your doing ..
Less questions you ask your customers the better they feel
You do not need to run hot water to wash barns .. dont waist your money

Dress for the job
and if your not Soaking wet when your done You did not do it right ..

dairyfarms@msn.com

or
Powerunderpressure@hotmail.com

And if you need a barn washed give me a call Im out of Albia IA

I'm not addressing the "Roof Stain Removers" here,...he posted information from another source.  Just wanted that to be clear.  

Well,..in reality,.if you have a clue as to how to handle this job properly,.you can stay mostly dry.   No reason at all to be soaking wet to do the job properly.  That must have been written by some dumb a**  that didn't want to spend the money to be properly geared up for the job at hand,..so figured being soaking wet was part of a properly done job. 

I used to wash boats that I was laying under while washing,..and I stayed mostly dry.

Were washing our first hog house Wednesday.
We have acquired :

19 large 1224 hog houses
2 large nursery houses
2 chicken houses

From what the farmers are telling me. If we do a good job, the word will spread throughout all the hog farmers in the area. There are well over 200 hog houses in my area. If I could get enough of them, we are thinking of phasing out of other residential work, and just do hog houses. Its not for everyone thats for sure, but it doesn't bother us at all. Were pretty excited about the whole thing. Just the amount of money and aggravation that we will save will be huge. No buying chemicals, no marketing, and most importantly alot less stress.
Thoughts?
