Why plastic pallets are hygienic?
So why are plastic pallets more hygienic than the regular wooden pallets? There are several reasons behind it such as:

The surface of plastic is not porous, this means that they do not allow accumulation of acids, fats, dirt, and other substances.
Plastic is impervious to odor and bad smell.

Plastic pallets come in two different design patterns: open and close, but as the surface of the plastic is smooth there is no accumulation of harmful substances. Biodegradable pallets remove all the concerns associated with the wooden pallets.
Wooden pallets on the other hand are a good conductor of fire and non-resistant to water. This causes fungal and bacterial issues. They have porous surface which result in accumulation of dust and other fine substances. The working life of a plastic pallet is 10 times more than that of a wood pallet.
Wood pallets get easily damaged due to usage of nails and there are splinters related issues. Plastic pallets are tougher and stronger than wood pallets, and they do not poise the typical damaging issues resulting from the usage of nails and splinters.
There are certain regulations in place that have been set by ISPM15 which are only met by the plastic pallets. These regulations were placed to make sure that wood was heat treated, debarked and then fumigated to prevent international transportation for disease and germs. These regulations do not apply on plastic pallets. They are more hygienic and safer than wood. Plastic pallets can be easily dried and cleaned.
They do not require heat or fumigation treatment. There is no way you can wash wood pallets which makes it hard to scrub clean on the spot using different chemicals and solutions. Plastic on the other hand is easy to clean and maintain. Plastics pallets are less prone to contamination. This is why plastic pallets are preferred to wood pallets.
