Disinfectants VS Sanitizers

Is there a difference???

April 20, 2020

In today's world, it seems to be very different than just a few months ago. So many are living in fear of the future, while others are just trying to understand how they can keep themselves and their families safe. The Coronavirus has affected us all in one way or another. In this blog, we hope to share some information with you that will help you be more informed so that you and your loved ones stay safe and happy!

What is a disinfectant and what does it do? Disinfectants help in KILLING a wide range of microorganisms. Then what are sanitizers for? Sanitizers generally just REDUCE bacteria. Cleaners on the other hand, do neither. The main purpose of a cleaner is to remove DIRT from surfaces and materials. 

Sanitizers are certified through the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for bacteria only. Disinfectants can also be certified to KILL viruses, mold, mildew and fungi. At SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene we have hospital grade disinfectants to help with your needs (for home or business).

SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene offers its support to the community with various services like fogging, spray and wipe and rental equipment (such as: air scrubbers, ozone machines, industrial fans and dehumidifiers). Our hope at SERVPRO of Coeur d'Alene is to educate and help our North Idaho area rise above the fears that are out there and prevent more spread of the virus.
