Basic Disinfection Basics

esterilizador portátil is the act of killing bacteria and other microorganisms by applying a chemical solution that removes them from the area. These organisms cannot be live without bacteria. The best known type of disinfection is chlorine bleach. Although there are many types and applications for this solution, chlorine bleach is one of the most commonly used disinfectants. Chlorine bleach is also known as TDS or trihalomethanes. It is a disinfectant that has been used for more than one hundred years and is still used today. It is a strong acid that attacks and kills bacteria on a microscopic level.

Disinfection does not always kill all bacteria, especially highly resistant bacterial spores; rather it is much weaker than ordinary sterilization which is either a chemical or physical process that destroys all forms of living life. Disinfection removes microorganisms because it physically destroys the organism on contact; the chemical disinfectant does the same thing with a chemical solution. However, there are other types of disinfection that use a combination of chemical and physical processes. These include ozone, ultraviolet light, UV-B, and other UV radiation. These methods can help to get rid of some types of microorganisms; however they are generally not as effective as chlorine bleach.

Disinfection is a very serious business and should be dealt with professionally, because it may be causing health problems if not handled properly. If you suspect you may have an issue with cleaning that may involve some form of disinfection, please call in a professional who specializes in this area. Contact a local health department and/or a local sanitation department to find a qualified professional in your area that is licensed to do disinfection procedures.
