Compliance and Dwell/kill Times
Timing is truly of the essence, when it comes to sanitizing and disinfecting. If the disinfectant label contact time is not achieved, there is a risk that the surface was not properly disinfected and could create risk for a susceptible employee. Environmental factors, like humidity, temperature, and disinfectant ingredients, such as high levels of alcohol, can impact dwell/kill times, as they may cause surfaces to dry before the contact time is achieved. Also, your sanitizing and disinfection protocol may not allow enough time to perform the task with the required dwell/kill time. These are important considerations, as some disinfectants that most consumers use are slow-acting, requiring long contact times that may not be realistic within your environment. This is why it may be best to outsource to Sanitize Solutions, we know the time it takes to properly kill harmful pathogens. Why constantly worry if your staff has the proper protocols in place to properly keep everyone safe.
Dilatable, RTU or Wipes?
A recent study has shown that staff is more likely to be compliant with disinfectant protocols when using disinfectant wipes but are often not used in the proper matter causing them to be less effective. When compared to the traditional towel and bucket method, RTU wipes significantly increased compliance but reduced effectiveness.
The Sanitize Solutions Antimicrobial BioShield System compliments cleaning protocols by inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold, mildew, algae, fungi, and yeast under normal conditions for up to 90 days. Utilizing RTU wipes as touch ups in areas of know infections. This reduces the cost per employee, per day while still maintaining a healthy workplace.
DISINFECTANT? OR DISINFECTANT CLEANER?
Understand your product, and determine if you are able to simplify your process with a disinfectant cleaner that both cleans and disinfects in one step, or if you are using a disinfectant that requires you to pre-clean a surface prior to disinfection. There are many disinfectants that are not cleaners, and many cleaners that don’t disinfect. Some cleaners with disinfectant are not actually disinfecting the surface due to the improper dwell/kill time needed, giving you that false sense of security. The best choice is to leave this process to the professionals at Sanitize Solutions and follow up with a cleaner and disinfectant combined for an as needed basis.
