In order to maintain a healthy environment in the grow room, growers must ensure they are taking proper measures to keep equipment clean and disinfected. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and utilizing our sanitizing and sterilizing products here at Hydrobuilder can prevent bigger issues from arising down the road.
What can I use to clean my grow room?
Sanitation, or cleaning, of the grow room should be done on a regular basis. This entails wiping surfaces down, sweeping or vacuuming, and immediately cleaning up any runoff or spills, trimmings, and leaves.Simply keeping a tidy garden space goes a long way. The intake filter should be cleaned weekly, to ensure it is doing its job of keeping harmful pathogens out of the garden. Simply cleaning your environment regularly will prevent many pests and diseases from overtaking plants.
How do you disinfect a grow room?
Sterilizing, or disinfecting, a grow room is a bit more tedious than simply cleaning the area. This process involves removing any microorganisms from the space, such as bacteria, fungus, viruses, and other pathogens. Chemical cleaners, like the ones we have here at Hydrobuilder, are the best way to sterilize equipment. Whereas sanitizing is a general process, sterilization is more precise. Growers want to focus on disinfecting hydroponic systems, pots and containers, cloning machines, and other areas susceptible to pests and diseases.
