What is the difference between cleaning and disinfecting?

Cleaning is for appearance

cleaning cycle

Chemicals such as bleach and ammonia remove grime, but they are rarely effective because surfaces must stay saturated with these chemicals for 10-20 minutes to kill germs.

Cleaning tools absorb liquids, causing surfaces to dry within 3.5 minutes, which is not enough time to be effective.

Improper chemicals and common cleaning rags do not kill germs! They simply move germs from one surface to another.

Bio-decontamination impacts health

disinfection cycle

Today’s pathogens require new germ warfare technology. Using sporadical disinfectants, microfiber rags, UV lights, and unique fogging methods are the most effective way to kill germs.

  • Proper chemicals designed to kill germs like MRSA, C. diff, Enterovirus, and the Flu work within only 2 minutes.
  • Pathogend uses handheld UV light (a method used some in hospitals)
  • Total-room decontamination fogging is essential to kill 99.9999% of germs.
  • Fogging technology greatly reduces the chance of human error by infiltrating places that traditional wiping misses, including areas wiping cannot reach.
