Using Disinfectant Spray: What You Need to Know

Awareness for properly cleaning and disinfecting high traffic areas has become more prominent.

For those handling basic day-to-day cleaning, whether it’s at home or the office, you’ll usually give a surface a quick spray, followed by a few wipes to dry the surface and then call it a day.

However, this method is quite ineffective. Drying the surface does not allow the disinfectant enough time to do its job of eliminating germs & viruses!

At Mayken™ Hazmat Solutions, we’re committed to helping keep you, your family and your business safe. With our Disinfectant Solution, you’ll have your very own, safe-to-use solution for disinfecting all your surroundings.

Whether you’re disinfecting to keep your family safe, preparing for the holidays or doing a deep clean in your commercial space, here’s everything you need to know about using disinfectant spray from Calgary’s hazardous cleaning and remediation specialists.

Why You Should Be Using Disinfectant Spray When Cleaning

Did you know that most cleaning products don’t disinfect?

It’s a common misconception when it comes to using cleaning products. Most people believe that if they have used a cleaning product on a surface, then it’s clean and free of germs.

This is why it’s important to understand the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting:

  • Cleaning is the process of physically removing dirt or grime from a surface.
  • Sanitizing is the process of reducing the amount of germs on a surface.
  • Disinfecting is a process that kills all, or almost all applicable bacteria and viruses on a surface.

When cleaning, incorporate disinfecting spray to ensure surfaces are completely clean and germ-free. The most significant thing to know when using a disinfectant solution is that they only work when wet.

Disinfectant products usually contain a high concentration of alcohol so that they can break down and eliminate bacteria and viruses lingering on surfaces.

When using disinfectant solutions, sprays are better than wipes!

Disinfecting sprays allow you to apply the necessary amount of liquid to a surface needed to effectively disinfect a surface.

Using Commercial Disinfectant Spray at Home or Your Business

Referred to as “kill time” or “dwell time”, disinfecting spray requires staying wet on a surface for a specific amount of time to eliminate germs and viruses. Although it’s usually a habit to wipe a surface after you’ve sprayed it, leaving the disinfectant is critical to ensuring that the solution has had enough time to break down the contaminants.

For disinfectants to be effective, the surface must be cleaned first. This way the solution comes in direct contact with any germs and viruses, instead of settling on dirt and debris.

Use a disinfectant spray on high traffic areas in your home such as entryways or hallways and handles or door knobs. High traffic areas at a business are anywhere from desks to common spaces where people tend to congregate.

When using a disinfectant spray at home or at your business, the approach you take to applying the solution differs. At home, using a spray bottle with a mist setting is your best bet for getting the job done.

For larger spaces, like offices or commercial spaces, electrostatic technology is best suited to apply disinfectants in larger rooms.
