In many aspects, the dental world is very similar to a hospital environment. With the high turnover rate of patients, it is imperative to make sure your facility is free from the harmful microorganisms that can build up on non-porous surfaces. That’s why it is essential to make sure your facility understands the importance of disinfecting procedure and the necessity to choose the proper disinfecting agent.
When you visit a restaurant, gym, grocery store, school, or another JanSan facility, one of the first things most people notice is the cleanliness of the facility. A dirty restaurant, for example, can cause customers to walk out and leave negative reviews, or in severe cases, it can bring down the wrath of a health inspector. In addition to a dirty facility causing customer dissatisfaction, they can be breeding grounds for disease-causing microorganisms. Many JanSan businesses use disinfectants to keep their facilities pathogen-free after they clean the surfaces.
Disinfecting is a significant part of maintaining a business in the healthcare, JanSan, food-service, or veterinary industry. Companies must understand the disinfecting options widely available on the market. Disinfectant products come in a variety of forms, but the most common are wipes and sprays. Safetec's options are ready to use and don’t require additional dilution methods, unlike some competitors options. Spray disinfectants are preferable in situations where general disinfection is necessary because the spray can cover a larger area than a wipe-down can. Additionally, sprays can be applied to previously cleaned surfaces without the need to perform any additional work, spray and keep the surface wet for the duration of the kill claim.

What are the correct steps to take when disinfecting a surface? There are many questions to ask yourself about this process, and Mickey Crowe from CleanLink lists them out when answering a writer when he states, “What surface are you cleaning and disinfecting? Is it a touch point that may not evidence apparent soils, yet need to be cleaned first? Is the disinfectant a "cleaner/disinfectant" that is designed to perform both functions in one application? What is the recommended dwell time for the product to be effective? What does the label direct the worker to do? Does the disinfectant need to be removed after prescribed dwell time (example: toilet seat)? Is there a way of testing for contamination after the area has been cleaned/disinfected to verify efficacy? How was the worker trained and is he/she supervised closely enough to verify they are following prescribed guidance?”(Crowe www.cleanlink.com ).
