With the increasing, recent rise of sanitation and health concerns as well as our annual time of year for spring cleaning, our country is focusing on its sanitation and cleaning efforts more than ever. So to help homeowners find cleaning products with antimicrobial attributes, we wanted to do a series where we focused on a variety of sanitation products. These products will all feature antimicrobial attributes that fight against the spread of bacteria. Let’s take a look!
Disinfectants are a type of antimicrobial cleaning product. They are one of the most frequently-used, well-loved cleaning products and for a good reason. They are easy to use and help eliminate disease-causing microbes. These microbes can live on frequently-used surfaces like our countertops, sinks, handles, light switches, etc. In fact, they can be found everywhere in the household. Their frequency and distribution are what make disinfectants so important.
There are five different types of microbes: bacteria, archaea, fungi, algae, protozoa, and viruses. These microbes survive in moist, humid surroundings. Antimicrobials like disinfectants help prevent the breakdown of material like furniture, textiles, or apparel.
Disinfectants are manufactured to destroy microorganisms on surfaces; therefore, they provide a safer, cleaner environment for your home. The use of disinfectants can help prevent the spread of dangerous bacteria and viruses. Therefore, homeowners are encouraged by the Center for Disease Control to use disinfectant in their homes during this uncertain time. The disinfectant will help eliminate harmful bacteria while providing a safer living space.
We are all in this together, and we wish nothing more than the health and safety of you and your loved ones.
