What To Consider When Choosing Your Products?

When selecting the right type of product there are a couple factors to consider before moving forward. First and foremost is the surface you are preparing or cleaning and what type of solutions you need. However, when selecting from a wider range there are four primary elements to pay attention to before making your final decision to best meet the needs of your facility. Follow the below guide to selecting the right option for you. 


The main concern must always be, whether or not the solution you choose has the ability to tackle the substances present in your space. Whatever you choose it must be able to kill the microbes and pathogens that are of top concern in your facility. A usual concern, for example, is the presence of Staphylococcus aureus Methicillin Resistant (MRSA). Some products, like  Viraclean, are TGA approved as effective against this type of bacteria and are able to tackle the strains present in most cases. Always keep in mind that pathogens can have multiple strains, and disinfectants are certified for specific strains. Pending your industry and facility – healthcare, education, long-term care, hospitality – you will have varying needs and requirements that you must cater to.


Depending on your industry there are other considerations to take in as well, from time taken to kill bacteria to the time the surface takes to dry, you need to get the right range for your working environment. The formulas behind these products are registered to kill specific pathogens in a specific amount of time, and they need to be wet on a surface the entire time to be actively working. If a space needs to be used actively within time constraints, you need to get a product that supports this dieally. Thirty seconds to five minutes might be a typical kill time, but can need as much as 10 minutes to fully disinfect the surfaces. Alcohol-based disinfectants may very well evaporate before their required contact time, but others will not. 


Some categories of product are toxic, some may stain, and others are corrosive, all of which are suited to a particular need or environment. Check toxicity and flammability ratings on products, as well as any personal protective equipment (PPE) recommendations for disinfectants you apply. Be sure a disinfectant will not damage any surface it is intended for. Ensure that you selecta option suited to your situation.
