Businesses need to protect staff and customers during and after reopening and individuals need to ensure their homes are hygienically clean particularly surfaces and high touch points like door handles and lift buttons but do you know the difference between cleaning, sanitising and disinfecting?
Cleaning – removes dirt and grime from a surface but won’t kill bacteria
Sanitising – kills surface bacteria but won’t kill viruses or fungi
Disinfecting – inactivates viruses and kills bacteria and fungi
For some surfaces cleaning or sanitising may suffice depending on the use of the surface but during the current climate disinfecting is recommended too, if there were 100,000 bacteria on a surface after disinfecting only a few would remain. Disinfectant can be used to clean as it will remove dirt and grime but it should then be used again to disinfect.
During a pandemic, businesses are under more pressure than normal to ensure their cleaning regime is at the top of their game and many people don’t disinfect properly either by not cleaning thoroughly first, not using the correct concentration or product or not leaving it on the surface for the correct amount of time.
