What are the two sanitizing methods?
Sanitizing is a type of cleaning method that disinfects surfaces to eliminate or lower the presence of bacteria and viruses. You can sanitize a surface using heat and chemical processes. Here’s what you need to know about these two sanitizing methods.
To disinfect a surface using heat, high temperatures can reduce or eliminate the spread of potentially harmful bacteria and viruses. The heating method can be used with hot air, water, or steam, depending on what works best with the material being sanitized.
Chemicals like chlorine, iodine, and quaternary ammonium can also be used to disinfect a surface. Chemical sanitizers can be used with varying concentrations and exposure times to fit a facility’s specific needs.
