Getting to know your disinfectants

In the marketplace today, there are many types of disinfectants available. Whilst many are similar in what they offer, they do have some differences and it is important to choose the products that best meet your needs. It is important to check their ARTG listing which verifies what they can claim and the MSDS to ensure suitability to your environment. Another factor to consider is the different formats the products come in to ensure that you are minimising cross-over of products which can reduce their effectiveness. Always check required kill times, whether they work in dirty conditions and dilutions as these may vary greatly from product to product.

Below is a chart demonstrating the different types of products available.
