How Often Do You Need To Clean Your Grow Tent

New grower, and I just finished my first grow. I want to get ready for my next grow and was wondering how often do you need to clean your grow tent? Should you clean it after each grow, every other?

Most of us clean every grow cycle. It depends on for me if I know I had pollen present. I definitely need to clean it if I had a dude in there.

If it was just the ladies, I’ll take the tray out and hose it. Just get extra stuff off.

I clean my grow tent after every grow. I use peroxide and water 50/50

I have never cleaned my tents over the last 2 years other than wiping up spills from time to time with a towel and picking up leaves that have fallen and using them as mulch.
Unless you’ve had an issue with bugs or pollen I don’t see a reason to spend the time and effort. If it ain’t broke and all.

When I was still able to take my girls out of the tent to water I would pull the trays and wash them down as well as the elevators every watering. I would also mop up the bottom of the tent with some peroxide and maybe wipe the walls down a bit and also swap out the dirty pre filters for the intake and exhaust and wash the dusty ones. . Now that i cant really get in there as they are netted I just get what I can reach and clean the filters.

I clean mine out every Sunday, but you can blame my OCD for that :crazy_face:

When flowering, I wait until they are done before doing a complete clean, unless I’ve spilled a heap of nutes or something.

I vacuum mine out almost every night, but deep clean it at the end of the cycle.

I wipe everything down between grows with alcohol, and keep it clean as I go along.No mess,no pests.Or at least a better chance.

Wipe down walls after each grow.
Prefilter intake as needed. A good vac usually takes care of it.
Runoff collection trays after every water / feed. I ph everything coming out so it can’t be contaminated.
Floor as needed while I have trays out. Advanced Nutrients OIM is black and molasses like so spills really make a mess.
