Know the difference between cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing

CLEANING

Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using soap (or detergent) and water to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

DISINFECTING

Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.

SANITIZING

Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or disinfecting surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading infection.

Disinfecting Health Care Facilities

Health Care Facilities requires disinfection and sterilizing. The CDC gives guidelines for disinfection and sterilization in healthcare facilities. This process is part of a larger infection control plan. One of the key things to note is that, even in health care, disinfectants don’t need be used everywhere. For example, the CDC states that disinfecting noncritical environmental surfaces like floors and walls makes no difference in health care-associated infection rates. However, disinfecting floors and not following a proper two-step process can cause residue build-up. Disinfectants are generally poor cleaners and leave sticky residue on surfaces, allowing them get dirty again fast.

Disinfecting Schools And Other Public Buildings

The ProjectClean Facility Services uses a multi-purpose cleaner or sanitize product, with targeted disinfection, on areas where specific disinfection is need; in places like schools, stores or other public spaces where these touch areas are most frequently and needs more attention. We know that cleaning alone does remove germs from surfaces. It’s critical to understand why and how these disinfectants should be used. A thorough cleaning and sanitizing program can reduce germs and bacteria to appropriate levels while providing a safer chemical program for your facility. Disinfectants are pesticides and frequently pose hazards to human and environmental health. For this reason, limiting disinfectant use to critical areas is an important part of a safer, greener cleaning system.
