Q: How do I clean one of your Arks out?

I've read a great deal about the merits of Arks with removeable floors that make cleaning out much easier.

For the reasons outlined under the FAQ's Q: Do your Arks have floors, I've been told I need a floor?, we do not ever put floors in Arks.

Pigs will only ever soil the inside of the Ark if they are not warm enough, being naturally clean animals, they would prefer to do that outside.

Therefore, you do not have to "clean out" an Ark when occupied.  When that particular Sow, Litter or Group vacate the Ark, it should be moved and the bedding either burnt or disposed of.

The Ark should then be left standing on its back panel so that the air can dry the inside and kill any bacteria.
