Cleaning Versus Disinfecting

November 4, 2020

Cleaning Versus Disinfecting

There is a major difference between just cleaning surfaces and facilities, and disinfecting and protecting them. Make sure your facility is safe for it's guests by knowing the difference and getting the protection that you need.

Cleaning, Disinfecting and Sanitizing

Cleaning is accomplished by physically wiping surfaces to remove visible soils, dust, and debris. Sanitizing reduces specific bacteria listed on label. Disinfecting destroys or inactivates both the bacteria and viruses identified on the product's label. Many disinfectants do not kill viruses.

Bottom Line: Read the label to see if disinfectant kills viruses.

Choose a Disinfectant

Make sure it kills viruses, in-particular Human Coronavirus. Also make sure it kills germs and bacteria.

Bottom Line: Once the label!

Choose a Protectant

It is recommended to protect your facility to ensure against on going, and continued spread of germs, viruses, and bacteria. Make sure the protectant can continue through multiple touches for up to 90 days.

Application Methods

The Electrostatic Spraying System delivers electrostatically charged droplets that are attracted to surfaces, including the exposed backsides of surfaces regardless of the direction of spray. The disinfectant covers surfaces and objects 360-degrees with a 3-D wrapping effect. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged (and surfaces/objects are neutral or negatively charged), it allows the disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for complete coverage. Misters and Foggers deliver very small droplets that passively deposit on surfaces based on the direction of spray and the effect of gravity, resulting in more uneven coverage. Misters and foggers do not give 360 degree even coverage. Physically wiping down surfaces with disinfectant is time consuming, labor intensive and provides the least consistent coverage. Does not give 360 degree coverage. Physical wiping also uses too much disinfectant.
