Areas,equipment and surfaces that need to be disinfected

Areas, equipment and surfaces that need to be disinfected.

Surfactant based disinfectant used ?

Proper cleaning information.

1. If the disinfectant in use does not contain a surfactant, wash the areas to be decontaminated with soap (detergent) and water first to remove oily dirt that may prevent the disinfectant from contacting and killing the microorganism.

2. Pour the disinfectant on the areas to be decontaminated or onto towelling. Rub the areas and repeat. Let a film of disinfectant remain on the surface to air dry. If using a phenolic- based compound, follow up with a water rinse to remove the residual phenolic ( if desired). For this procedure to be effective, the disinfectant must contact the organism and be in contact forms sufficient time to destroy it ( see manufacturer's recommendations).
