What’s the difference between using a cleaner and using a disinfectant?
If a surface is dirty, it must be cleaned before the surface can be adequately sanitized and disinfected. Dirt and grime create a barrier that will not allow a sanitizer / disinfectant to do its job.
So, to fully protect your office and work environment, it’s important to clean first and then sanitize and disinfect.
