What is the Difference Between Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting?
There is a difference between cleaning, disinfecting and sanitization. Knowing the difference is important to safeguard the health of your family and employees.
Cleaning refers to removing visible surface contaminants usually using soap and water or household cleaners. This will not kill bacteria and viruses.
Disinfecting involves using products that are applied to surfaces that kill many microorganisms except resistant bacterial spores. Many disinfecting procedures require cleaning as the first step. Proper disinfecting requires accurate application according to directions on the product.
Sanitization is a process that eliminates bacteria and viruses that could affect your health. This requires the chemical to be diluted properly and must remain on surfaces for the required amount of time, however a shorter time.
