Know the difference between clean and sanitised – Commercial Cleaning
Professional cleaning companies help workplaces go from tidy to clean and sanitised.
Cleaning is often just the first step for commercial cleaning companies.
Professional cleaning business premises will usually go beyond this to also sanitise appropriate surfaces.
Are cleaning and sanitising different?
Yes. Cleaning focuses on removing dirt/mess from things and places. For example, hoovering the floor of a school classroom.
Whereas sanitising focuses on getting something thoroughly clean and free from bacteria. Examples of this might be a commercial cleaning company sanitising a dental surgery treatment room so that it’s safe for patients.
It’s the initial step in a comprehensive decontamination procedure – but it’s one that must be completed!
This is where we clean away apparent grime, dust, or debris to prep the area for sanitising and disinfection.
Normally, clean water is used alongside a universal detergent to get surfaces sparking clean. For areas with a low risk of spreading germs (like floors or windows) this may be enough.
This goes beyond just cleaning and works to get rid of a large number of bacteria. This is essentials for any surface that food comes into contact with.
This is where your risk of infection is decreased by using a highly effective chemical sanitiser.
Although it usually kills most bacteria, there are some viruses which can withstand sanitisation.
The surfaces most at danger of contamination may need to be properly decontaminated.
