Difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting

Surfaces can be cleaned, sanitized or disinfected but what is the difference between each option?

CLEANING

Removes dirt, grease, debris and many germs by scrubbing with soap (detergent) and water.

SANITIZING

Reduces the number of disease causing germs to a “safe level” (99.9% killed).

DISINFECTING

Kills disease causing germs on surfaces. This process is accomplished with germicides or physical agents such as high heat. We have Green solutions and state of the art Machines to disinfect your Business.

Most surfaces need to be cleaned, while high touch points need to be sanitized and disinfected.
