The HortiHygienz concept is a total solution for hygiene issues in horticulture. When the concept is applied to sanitization after crop removal, the below points are especially important to consider.
• Highly corrosive cleaners and disinfectants should be avoided, products used should also allow for work to re commence in the space immediately after disinfection.
• Products used for water treatment should be non-residual and remove bio film that can lay dormant inside closed systems.
• Foam should be used for disinfection because of it’s increased contact time and surface visibility.
- All Biological waste and accessories must be removed and accounted for according to regulatory guidelines.
- Once only the permanent fixtures remain, the first step is to clean and rinse all surfaces so they are totally free of debris. Close attention should be paid to any rough surfaces or crevices, and no built up organic matter should be present prior to disinfection.
- Irrigation lines will also be flushed during the cleaning phase.
- The final disinfection phase can now begin, all surfaces must be fully coated in disinfectant foam and left to dry.
- All staff should change and thoroughly clean / disinfect themselves before entering other areas.
