Shop Vac

I use a shop vac, have been for the last 15 years. Best way I know to pick up the fine dust that sweeping stirs up.GEORGE;)

I keep a small hand broom and dust pan in my coop for minor spot clean up, but have used a shop vac for the last few years that is in a storage cubbie in the coop. I wear a mask for good cleaning days.

This may be a stupid question, but I scrape then sweep and that is not good enough and I want to improve...so, do you scrape, sweep the bug stuff THEN use the ShopVac or??? Will the ShopVac take the place of the sweeping too after I scrape?:confused:

I think most use it on occasions, when the scuff and dust and feathers start to build up,oh and when they are molting can't beat it!. I loft fly the birds and then get in the loft and go over all the corners and cracks AFTER all the poop is scraped , I don't sweep, it stirs up too much pigeon dust......

Now that the SNOW is gone and I can get the ShopVac out there...that's how we plan on cleaning it out 1x a month or so. In between - I scrape every day .... but we only have 16 birds so that's a pretty easy thing to do.
