The difference between cleaning and disinfecting


Cleaning essentially means you are removing germs. Disinfecting means you are killing the germs, simply stated. Many confuse the two thinking they're the same thing and quite frankly they aren't. Disinfecting is important because many times we can clean something correctly and still leave certain germs or bacteria to regrow. Moreover, disinfecting has the ability to kill micro organisms, the ones unseen to the naked eye so they cant regrow or spread.
