Types of disinfectants range considerable, in the past alcohol based disinfectants were the norm, these alcohol based disinfectants had a strong odor and often would cause skin irritation to the user. Alcohol based disinfectants have been passed by WATER based disinfectants, considered by most as being much safer to the user without the strong cleaner smell. Water based disinfectants can be powders, come in pouches that drop and dissolve in water or liquid concentrate or use straight. Some disinfectants termed “all natural” are becoming very popular and are typically made of vinegar or plant base materials. Most of the “natural” disinfectants do not qualify as a hospital grade disinfectant for broad spectrum uses.
Proper disinfecting procedures involve the removal of gross contaminates on the surfaces, these gross contaminates could be; dirt, grime, food, trash, other soiled substances. Once the surfaces have been pre-cleaned disinfecting cleaning can be performed. For a disinfectant to work, the non-porous surfaces must be pre-clean for a disinfectant to properly adhere to the surface and perform as the label describes. A disinfectant will not work properly or at all if applied to a “dirty surface”.
A pre-cleaned surface can have a disinfectant applied by hand sprayer, pump sprayer, sponge, rag, or by the use of “mist” machines that spray small droplets out onto surfaces in a fine fist. The mist method is a very fast and efficient way to disinfect surfaces like locker rooms, school desks, classrooms, etc.
What most people do not know is that for the disinfectant to work, there is a period of time that the disinfectant must remain on the surface for it to perform to its label description - this time is called dwell time, and typically is anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes after the disinfectant is applied to a surface.
To sum up, to disinfect properly use a hospital grade disinfectant typically a water based one, pre-clean all non-porous surfaces, porous surfaces like carpet/fabrics cannot be guaranteed to be disinfected, apply the disinfectant, let sit for its dwell time, then final wipe the surfaces if necessary to remove any residues. Use a “mist” machine if disinfecting large areas like locker rooms or gyms.
