Top 5 Sanitization FAQs When Disinfecting Your Business or Home

These days, sanitation is a major concern. This is true for both homes and businesses. 

For this reason, many people are desperately seeking ways to eliminate germs and protect their friends, loved ones, and even customers, from pathogens.

However, there isn’t always clear guidance on the best ways to go about disinfecting your space. For example, is it best to use a harsh chemical solution or a more natural disinfectant?

In this article, we will review the top 5 sanitation FAQs so that you can make an informed decision about how to best protect your business or home.

Top 5 Disinfection FAQs

1. What is the Difference Between Sanitizing and Disinfecting?

When getting ready to clean the desired area, it’s important to know the distinct terms in order to decide what cleaning methods fit best for your needs. To be specific, sanitizing is the act of removing bacteria pathogens from a surface while disinfecting includes actually killing those viruses. 

Another difference between the two methods of cleaning is found in the types of pathogens each method has the ability to kill. Sanitizing can kill bacteria while disinfecting kills both viruses and bacteria. 

That being said, most people will use these terms to mean the same thing: effectively cleaning a facility or specific surface. However, disinfecting ensures the safest removal of both viruses and bacteria. The Bask Solutions Mistmaster®, paired with the recommended Husky 892 Concentrate Disinfectant, will guarantee that high-transmission surfaces are entirely disinfected.

2. What is the Best Cleaning and Sanitizing Equipment?

There are tons of different options out there for cleaning and sanitizing. Each of them claims to be the best, the safest, and the most effective. How can a consumer possibly parse through all of these different products to find the right one for them?

Well, there are a few things you should look for in your cleaning and sanitizing equipment.

For one thing, you should ensure that your cleaning and sanitizing equipment is able to cover a broad area. Case in point, having a mister that can reach an entire playground or jungle gym is essential for those who need to maintain cleanliness on one of these structures. Keeping kids safe from germs is incredibly important to their health and well-being.

Additionally, you may consider having equipment that can reach into hard-to-access locations, such as between cracks. These areas can be very tricky for adults to access, but they harbor tons of bacteria and kids can easily reach into these places. Fortunately, the Mistmaster has a Misting Wand attachment that is ideal for disinfecting these hard-to-reach areas due to its excellent precision and control. The Misting Wand can be used to disinfect areas that are difficult to clean, such as cracks and crevices. 

Last but not least, having a remote capability can go a long way as well. Being able to set up your equipment, then start and stop it from another location is an incredible benefit.

Lucky for you, the Mistmaster can accomplish all of these feats and more!

3. Should I Use Bleach to Sanitize My Home or Business?

Bleach is often touted as one of the best cleaning methods for high-transmission areas. However, bleach may not work on all different types of germs and can also be damaging to different types of surfaces. 

For this reason, you may consider using a more comprehensive cleaner, but bleach can work in a pinch. However, Bask Solutions recommends using the Husky 892 Concentrate Disinfectant in your Mistmaster to kill and disinfect in high-transmission areas. This treatment will not damage any of the surfaces in your home or business like bleach may do. 

The Husky 892 Concentrate Disinfectant is also known to have one of the fastest kill times for COVID, as well as other viruses and bacteria. With this treatment, you can guarantee protection from spreading illnesses to friends, family, and coworkers.

4. How Should I Prepare the Area Before Disinfecting It?

When you’re getting ready to disinfect the inside of a building or an outside area, you should make sure you have thoroughly prepared beforehand. Most of the preparatory measures you should take are fairly intuitive. If you have any equipment that shouldn’t be in contact with the cleaner, be sure to move this out of the way.

Furthermore, picking up any objects that may prevent the cleaner from reaching important places is an important step as well. Though, it is important to note that mists have the ability to travel and make their way around objects compared to ordinary sprays. When using a misting device like the Mistmaster, you don’t have to worry about moving the heavy objects in your way because the mist will make its way around these items to reach target areas.

5. Are There Laws About Disinfection That I Need to Consider?

Before sanitizing your home or business, you should be sure to review any applicable government laws and regulations. You may find that you are not allowed to use a certain cleaner in your state or that federal laws prevent you from accessing it. This will vary on a case-by-case basis, so be sure to look into your local laws before moving forward with any cleaning and sanitizing equipment.

Some cleaning and sanitizing equipment can be quite noisy, which could cause concern in terms of breaking your local noise ordinance. With the Mistmaster’s built-in battery, you can stay protected without dealing with typical noisy misting systems.
