E.P.A. APPROVED PROCEDURE FOR POULTRY PREMISE SANITATION SITE PREPARATION

The first step in any on-going sanitation program should be the removal of gross contamination and debris. This may be accomplished using a shovel, broom, or vacuum depending on the area to be disinfected.

Once the heavy debris is eliminated thoroughly clean all surfaces with soap or detergent and rinse with water.
