Surface disinfectants

Surface disinfectants are suitable for any kind of surface that needs immediate disinfection. The use of surface disinfectants helps to reduce the spread of infection and disease and improves hygiene and cleanliness levels while protecting vulnerable populations such as people with compromised immune systems.

There are several types of disinfectant surfaces each with their own unique properties. The most common types of disinfectants include:

  • Quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs): are often used in hospitals, clinics, and laboratories. They are effective against a wide range of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In addition, they have long-lasting effects
  • Chlorine compounds: They are widely used in the food industry to disinfect surfaces, equipment, and utensils. They are particularly effective against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. 
  • Alcohols: Alcohols such as ethanol and isopropanol are commonly used as surface disinfectants. They are effective against most bacteria and viruses but have limited effectiveness against bacterial spores and fungi. 
  • Hydrogen peroxides: Hydrogen peroxide and peracetic acid are types commonly used as surface disinfectants. They are environmentally friendly as they decompose in water and oxygen.

Rinse-free surface disinfectants work by destroying or inactivating microorganisms that can cause infections and diseases. They work by disrupting the cell membrane or cell wall of micro-organisms leading to their destruction or inactivation. 

In order to choose the right professional surface disinfectant for your space, it is useful to consider the type of surface to be disinfected as different surfaces require different types of disinfectants.
