How do disinfectants work?
A disinfectant is not a cleaner. Disinfectants are products that kill or mitigate microbes by contacting them on the surface. They are most effective if the surfaces are free from significant organic material (e.g. soil, leaf litter, etc.) prior to application. Disinfectants kill microbes that are present within a few minutes of the time of the application, but provide little or no protection from future microbial agents. The disinfectant process creates a disinfected start on a surface, making it easier to manage. Continued applications may be necessary depending on client needs and usage.
