Current conditions have changed our daily lives in a short period of time
Now more than ever we all want to know that we are doing everything we can to keep ourselves and our colleagues and visitors safe and well. To ensure we can do this requires understanding the science behind surface wiping and cleaning.
Why is workplace hygiene important?
Creating a more hygienic workplace, healthcare facility and place to shop and eat does not stop at the washroom. Placing hand sanitiser and signage in common areas is a step in the right direction but studies show it simply isn’t enough to make a real impact.
In the span of 24 hours, the average adult touches 7,200 surfaces and touches their face 552 times, therefore targeting “hot spots” with hand and surface hygiene is a key step toward reducing the spread of germs. No matter which surfaces they come into contact with throughout their day, give your employees and visitors greater peace of mind by providing proven cleaning and disinfecting solutions to help break the chain of germ transmission.
What is the difference between cleaning and disinfecting?
Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and other impurities from surfaces or objects. Cleaning works by using detergent (or soap and water) to physically remove germs from surfaces. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them from the surface, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
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.
Step 1: Clean the surface of commonly touched objects — use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
Step 2: Disinfect the surface — using the appropriate EN-registered disinfectant. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for dilution, application and contact time.
