In the current global environment, disinfectants are in high demand. There is no room for compromise and subpar products. If you are on the lookout for a reliable supplier, you need to be aware of certain aspects and properties of various disinfectant products to determine which product is suitable for your needs. The choice of switching from one product to another may be fueled by financial needs or it can be a necessary transition to products that may offer better results. Before you hire a disinfection Service Singapore company, Due diligence is required and there are 5 key things worth considering when comparing various disinfectant products.
Scope and kill efficiency claims:
- Depending on your environment, you may struggle with different pathogens. The disinfectant products that may raise some interest need to be able to kill the pathogens that are present in your facility, building, room, or area. Consider conducting a health impact assessment that includes possible causes for outbreaks and pandemics.
Verify Kill and wet-contact times:
- Disinfectants can work in different ways. Some disinfectants are active only while the surface is visibly wet. If the surface is dry, the disinfectant is no longer active and cannot kill pathogens. Other disinfectants may be applied to dry surfaces and may remain active for a while. Some disinfectants have instant action and might need to be wiped off shortly after application. Depending on what type of disinfectant you choose, you may need to train your staff accordingly. Staff may need to be trained to maintain the surfaces wet, dry, or just wipe out the disinfectant after being applied. For each disinfectant to have maximum efficiency in killing pathogens, they must be used accordingly and as per the instructions provided by the supplier.
All disinfectants that are sourced from reliable suppliers will come with proper labeling. They should have a toxicity level printed and the manufacturer should specify if the product is flammable or not. Some disinfectants may even have a corrosive effect when used on certain surfaces. All these specifications, requirements, and warnings should be provided by the manufacturer using proper labeling. Consider looking at multiple types of disinfectants as they may have different properties.
Ease of use:
For commercial use, some disinfectants may have different ways of being used and applied onto surfaces. You may need special equipment to ensure an even distribution as well as protective equipment for the staff if the disinfectant has a high toxicity level. If you can ensure the required equipment you may want to use disinfectants that are more challenging to use in a commercial environment. At the other end of the spectrum, you may want to choose disinfectants that are easy to apply and require less effort to ensure they are efficient.
You may want to ask a few extra questions before settling on a product. Ask the supplier or manufacturer if the use of the product requires special training and if they can provide it. Think and ask about training costs and look at the pricing of the product. You may want to reconsider your budget and assess if the training and product are within your available funds or you may want to look at other disinfectant products.
Choosing a new disinfectant will lead to a whole set of questions and problems that the product needs to be addressed and it will prove to be more complicated than expected. Products such as Safetec’s SaniZide Pro® or SaniZide Plus® have proved to be effective especially when used commercially. Safetec’s SaniZide Plus® is completely alcohol-free, requiring 10-minutes to kill pathogens while SaniZide Pro® can sanitize an area in just 2 minutes.
