Common Misconceptions about Disinfectants and Cleaning Chemicals in Brockton, MA

\"DisinfectantDisinfectants and chemical cleaning products are important tools when it comes to infection control, but there are many misconceptions about both. Read on to set the record straight and learn the truth about disinfectants and chemical cleaning products in Brockton, MA.

Misconception: The best products have the fastest overall kill times.

Truth: Fast kill times are certainly important when choosing a disinfectant, but so is what type of organisms the product kills. Read labels carefully when evaluating kill times – certain products may take five minutes to destroy Norovirus, but if the manufacturer wants to keep the kill time to three minutes, he or she may simply not mention Norovirus on the label at all.

Misconception: Residue is bad.

Truth: Residue is made from dissolved ingredients that dry into solids on the surface. Often, these are essential ingredients, like detergents, corrosion inhibitors or stabilizing agents. Formulas that claim to leave no residue may be lacking one of these important ingredients, so do not make your shopping decisions based solely on that claim. Instead, protect your surfaces by wiping away residue periodically using a damp, clean cloth.

Misconception: Bleach is the best disinfectant.

Truth: Disinfecting with bleach is actually a two-part process, but most people skip the first step. Before applying bleach, the surface must first be pre-cleaned in order to properly perform as a sanitizer or disinfectant.
