What exactly is the distinction between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing?
Cleaning is the process of eliminating apparent dirt and trash. We utilize a fantastic cleaner/degreaser, but for customers and school systems on a budget, I recommend a drop or two of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid per 8 oz of water in a spray container. Doesn’t it sound simple?
Cleaning is essential before applying an antibacterial, long-lasting germ barrier. A germ shield forms a lasting contact with the surface it is applied to, which means it will bond with trash or your desktop, greasy fingerprints or your wall, bread crumbs or your kitchen counter.
Every time, we prevail in disinfecting. We want to kill viruses, bacteria, mold, mildew, and allergies since they all harm our health.
Most businesses concentrate their disinfection efforts on high-touch surfaces such as door knobs, light switches, phones and keyboards, office chair armrests, elevator buttons, faucets, and soap dispensers. All of these things are vital, yet many disinfection companies just work on high-touch surfaces. Some people include medium-touch surfaces, such as a chair’s seat. We go above and above…
Our strategy entails treating the whole building envelope. We treat EVERYTHING from the ceiling to the walls and windows to the complete desk/chair/cubicle to the flooring since our non-toxic disinfectant has an EPA-rating of up to 90 days. Friction is the enemy of an anti-viral, anti-bacterial germ shield, therefore by applying to the ceilings and walls, we significantly increase the surface area of the huge latticework of nano-spikes that attract and tear pathogen cell walls.
Because every surface attracts and neutralizes microorganisms, it makes sense to apply a germ shield to the walls, ceilings, and complete building envelope. In the fight against airborne infections and allergies, the whole building envelope is united, and surfaces become inhospitable to microorganisms. In addition, we prefer to clean the HVAC ductwork and air filters for the temperature control system. While this is not a real air scrubber, it may have a significant impact on lowering airborne infections and allergies.
It’s all about cranking up the heat when it comes to sanitizing! Your dishwasher sanitizes things by reducing the bacterial load on a surface, such as a plate, and presumably eradicating 99.9% of bacteria, although it is not always successful against viruses or fungus. This is why, even if you run your washer on a regular basis, it might grow stinky inside; it just does not kill the fungus.
Our washing machine features a sanitize function that warms the water to extremely high temperatures in order to eliminate microorganisms. Even with a sanitizing option, our laundry machine gets mildewy on the inside if it is not thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. It’s always a letdown that this doesn’t destroy everything nasty and scrub the outside of the drum, but instead merely sanitizes. It neither cleans nor disinfects. Because sanitizing and disinfection are not the same thing, we occasionally apply a disinfectant to destroy the fungus and mildew in the machine.
