Cleaning vs Disinfecting. What’s the Difference?

Cleaning and disinfecting are effective ways to reduce the germs and bacteria in your home. Both are important in maintaining a clean and healthy home. But what’s the difference between the two? Is it okay to only do one or the other?

Cleaning is just the physical removal of dirt on surfaces. A cleaning detergent, soap, and cleaning cloth/mop are enough to do this. Cleaning only removes dirt and grime from the surface, and it doesn’t really kill the harmful bacteria. Disinfecting, on the other hand, is a deeper cleaning. This requires a stronger cleaning substance, such as a chemical disinfectant, and it’s more effective in eliminating germs and viruses. It’s advisable to clean the area first before disinfecting to remove dust, soil, and other types of dirt. After cleaning a surface thoroughly, you may opt to follow it with disinfection.

Both processes are important in ensuring that your home is safe and clean. But doing both also requires time and effort. If you’re busy, we recommend a weekly cleaning, and then a disinfection service every 2 weeks. That should still provide your home with the extra cleaning it needs.
