A desk, a table, and countertop may all look clean but the surfaces may be contaminated with bacteria waiting for the opportunity to contaminate food and possibly lead to illness. Disinfectants are substances that reduce the amount of microorganisms on a surface to a level that is considered safe. Since bacteria is microscopic, it is impossible to see with the naked eye.
When a surface is cleaned, all of the dirt and debris is removed using the appropriate chemicals under the recommended conditions. Disinfectants take cleaning a surface one step further. When you disinfect a surface you remove all the dirt, soil, and bacteria so that the number of germs is reduced to such a level that the spread of disease is unlikely and is safe from a public health point of view. The most powerful disinfectants work as both a fungicide and virucide. Fungicides are used to kill or inhibit fungi or fungal spores. Virucides specifically target bacteria that can grow into harmful spreading viruses.
Viruses, colds and even deadly diseases have been clinically proven to be transmitted by un-sanitized hands and surfaces. It is important to protect yourself, your family, your clients, and your business. Read and learn about proper protocol for cleaning and disinfecting a surface, and remember consider the product you are using and how safe it is for you and the environment. Reading the label is very important when you’re deciding on a cleaning product. Many of the products that are capable of disinfecting and killing bacteria properly may also be very hazardous and therefore should be used with caution.
