Sanitation, Cleaning, Disinfecting its all the same thing right?
NO IT IS NOT!! Perhaps now more than ever we need to clarify terms and make sure that at Madison Orthopedic Massage we do and this benefits you tremendously.
Cleaning refers to washing dirt, debris, and common germs away from a workspace, hands, or area in use. Washing your hands for at 20 seconds with warm water helps to do this effectively.
Sanitizing Kills germs but doesn't
kill them all. Over the counter products for household use kill bacteria but not fungi and viruses.
Disinfecting Using an EPA registered product to kill all germs, bacteria, fungi and viruses in high traffic areas, surfaces and on tools that contact the skin is required by all health care practitioners.
Dwell Time, Contact Time, Wet Time The amount of time that a surface or tool has to be wet in order for disinfection to be effective. Did you know that Clorox has a wet time of 4 min to be effective? The disinfectant that we use at Madison Orthopedic Massage has a wet time of 1 minute.
The picture to left shows that the disinfectant Rejeuvenate is highly effective at killing viruses. It also only uses one ingredient accelerated hydrogen peroxide. It is non-toxic to humans, animals, and the planet. It is biodegradable, odorless and also poses no risk to fetal development.
