Disinfectants are used to rapidly kill bacteria and viruses. All require dwell-time where the disinfectant really has the chance to kill the bacteria. If it's wiped off immediately after spraying, it sanitizes the surface but some of the contaminants still remain on that surface. It's important to read the label to properly make use of these great products! There are different kinds of disinfectants available to match the surface and your type of facility. Get it here as a spray, a cleaner with disinfecting properties, or in concentrated CleanStation easy-dilution bottles.
