Steps for Sanitization
Cleaning, also known as soil load removal, must take place before disinfection or the use of an antimicrobial treatment. Due to the prevalence of airborne particulate (dust and other particles), and the probability of viral attachment to that particulate, contamination is possible through inhalation.
Therefore, the fogged application of a cleaning agent to precipitate particles to the surface being cleaned is recommended. The amount of product fogged should thoroughly wet the surfaces being cleaned to achieve soil load penetration and removal. The application of an antimicrobial or disinfectant prior to cleaning is ineffective, and at best, leads to inconsistent results.
Clean surfaces. Those surfaces that are free from residue and soil are able to accept disinfectant or antimicrobial treatments. Disinfectants are generally meant to kill remnant microbes on the surfaces while antimicrobial treatments are usually meant to inhibit future growth.
Treatment options include-Liquid based disinfectant or antimicrobial products.
These products should be understood to temporarily control microbial growth on non-porous and semi-porous surfaces. Based upon water solubility and/or abrasion, these treatments must be reapplied over time.
