Since both products save time and water as you wash fans, nest boxes, breeder ramps, farrowing rooms, nurseries and related equipment, the two can be mistaken to serve the same purpose. However, each individual product offers distinct benefits depending on your needs and goals.
Who are these products for?
Both products can benefit pullet growers, layer and breeder operations as well as broiler operations. They can also be applied in swine facilities.

When should I use SWASHDUST-REPEL™?
SWASHDUST-REPEL™ is best used for dry organic matter such as dust or dust build-up created from litter and birds, which can put an unwanted strain on your facility’s ventilation equipment.
For instance, if you’re frustrated with dust buildup on fans in poultry houses, or you’re in need of one product that could treat an entire breeder and broiler house interior (including water lines, feed lines, tunnel doors, etc. then SWASHDUST-REPEL™ would be the ideal option to resolve these issues.
For swine producers, SWASHDUST-REPEL™would also be the suggested product to utilize when treating fans inside breeding and gestation barns on swine farms.
When should I use SWASHHOUSE™?
SWASHHOUSE™ is best used for cleaning moist organic matter. It can be used to seal porous surfaces and boost hygiene levels as part of your cleaning regimen in both poultry houses and swine facilities.
For example, SWASHHOUSE™ can reduce manure and moist organic matter buildup to help maintain more consistent hygiene levels, regardless of variation in worker cleaning practices in farrowing rooms.
In broiler breeder houses, nest box ramps and breeder ramps treated with SWASHHOUSE™ require 25-50% less time to clean. The product can also be used in hatcheries to enhance removal of chick down in hatch rooms and enhance the cleaning and drying of hatch trays.
How do these products work?
Both SWASHDUST-REPEL™ and SWASHHOUSE™ can be applied to any hard CLEAN surface, (including metal, wood, plastic, or corroded surfaces). The products work by sealing off the porous nature of these surfaces, inhibiting the ability of organic matter to adhere to the surface.
You can expect application to fans to take about 15-20 seconds per fan, inside and out. In a 24-crate farrowing room, it will take approximately 10 minutes total per room. You do not need to obtain any sort of special license or machinery in order to apply the products. You can simply use a pesticide sprayer on the back of an ATV. A garden sprayer or a power washer would also work with foamer sprayers.
The shield enacted by either SWASHDUST-REPEL™ and SWASHHOUSE™ will remain in contact with the surface until high-pressure water is used to remove it, along with the soil attached to it. These products can reduce your cleaning time and your water usage on subsequent cleanings.
