The difference between, Cleaning, Sanitation and Standard Cleaning

 In chemical industry, General

Sanitation and cleaning are two entirely different things that share similarities and features but not the same thing and we must know that when both are effectively done, it is referred to as standard cleaning that protects our health, either for home cleaning or industrial cleaning.

A lot of people assume cleaning is equal to sanitation and the moment cleaning is been mentioned, automatic assumptions sets in.

What is Cleaning?

This is the process of removing unwanted substances, such as dirt, infectious agents, and other impurities, from an object or environment. This is different from sanitizing, where the process is best described as “To make something completely clean and free from bacteria.”
While Sanitation refers to the development and application of sanitary measures for the sake of cleanliness, protecting the health and aimed at improving or maintaining the standard of basic environmental conditions affecting well-being. A sanitation system includes the capture, storage, transport, treatment, and disposal or reuse of human excreta and wastewater.

There are millions of germs spread everywhere around us. In an office space/ industrial company in which germs can easily spread across the office desk, the keyboards, the tables, mouse pads and even on the chairs. With each day, survival of each germ keeps them rolling into millions inhabiting in your space. Mere cleaning and dusting of them, doesn’t move a bit until thorough cleaning and sanitation are been carried out.

The same thing applies to our homes. Most times, we bring germs from outside; it could be from the office space, market, public place or wherever we had made contacts with them. We unconsciously bring these germs into our home, endangering our lives to the exposures of this germs.

Carrying out a thorough house cleaning and office space cleaning includes a proper deep cleaning with the real cleaning products and industrial cleaning products.

House cleaning or industrial cleaning can just be a quick wipe down of a cushion, desk or reordering, getting rid of clutters, getting rid of dust, making things shiny, or making it pleasant and generally clean. But how much bacteria do you really think you’re removing? What about the germs that cannot be removed with just mere dusting and cleaning?
While sanitizing gets rid of germs that might cause health problems. Every home and company needs  the best home cleaning services and industrial cleaning services that includes sanitation to remove dirt and also germs.
