Keeping Pole Barns Clean

Chances are you built a pole barn to help clean up some of the clutter that was taking up all the space in your garage or warehouse. However, as you continued to pile materials, equipment and vehicles in your pole barn you probably noticed that this created quite a mess.

No one said your pole barn would be a palatial residence but it doesn't have to be a pig sty either. With some regular cleaning you can keep your pole barn in decent shape and avoid some of the problems that occur when storage facilities are not kept properly.

Organization will help a lot when it comes to keeping a pole barn clean. Having areas reserved for specific items, such as hay bales and tractor equipment, will prevent mix up and confusion and the habit of simply throwing anything anywhere. When you have structure and organization to your pole barn it is much easier to keep it clean.

You should always have clear walkways in a pole barn and these should be kept free of debris by regular sweeping. Having an employee or customer slip and fall in your pole barn can lead to a law suit and the cleaner your floors the less chance you have of a slip and fall. You should sweep your pole barn floors at least once a week and after any big movement of products or equipment.

Twice a year you should give thought to a full cleaning of your pole barn. This will require moving all of the items out of the pole barn so you can eliminate all the dust and debris that has been gathering over the months. You can also use this time to wipe down equipment and vehicles when they are outside the pole barn. Open all doors and windows of the building and use a leaf blower to rid the floor, walls and ceiling of cob webs and other debris.

Keeping your pole barn clean will help eliminate accidents and keep all your equipment running smooth.
