Many people are aware of what a clean business is. It’s a workplace that is tidy and visibly clean to the naked eye. But do you know what a sanitised business is? What’s the difference?
Sanitisers are products that destroy 99.99% of bacteria in 30 seconds or less. Sanitising is a chemical process that reduces and even kills germs on surfaces to make them safe for contact. Usually you sanitise in kitchens and other areas that come into contact with food.
When put to use in the workplace, sanitisers are a great solution to clean things fast. For example, a barman cleaning multiple glasses in a short space of time would use a sanitiser cleaning product in order for the glasses to be clean enough to be used again quickly.
Disinfectants are products that destroy all organisms within 10 minutes of applying them. Disinfecting requires a stronger solution to completely destroy germs rather than simply reduce them like sanitisers do.
In a business environment, disinfectants are great for places like surgeries and hospitals as they remove all germs, therefore completely eliminating the risk of any disease spreading. In this environment, it is more important to kill all of the germs, even if it takes longer than using a sanitiser.
Whilst cleaning only removes visible dirt, when you sanitise or disinfect an area, you are removing most if not all of the potentially harmful bacteria that might would not be visible to the naked eye.
Both sanitising and disinfecting are a step up from regular cleaning and it’s important to make sure your workplace is being cleaned correctly with the right products to prevent the spread of germs, bugs and illnesses.
If you’re currently cleaning your business yourself, there’s a very high chance you won’t be cleaning it correctly. Whilst there are many benefits for businesses that use a commercial cleaning company, expert product knowledge when it comes to clean, sanitised and disinfected is by far the best reason to hire someone else to tackle your cleaning.
If you’re already using a professional cleaning service, chances are they will already be using the right products for your workplace, although it doesn’t do any harm to check. Unfortunately, some cleaning companies won’t always be honest when it comes to the products they use in an attempt to cut costs. So, it’s important to choose a reputable company that is known for its quality cleaning.
