Basic rules and important facts about surface disinfection.
Surface disinfection is an essential part of infection prevention, especially in medical and commercial facilities. During surface disinfection, germs and pathogenic microorganisms on surfaces are reduced or rendered harmless. The aim is to minimize the risk of transmission of infections. This is particularly important in medical, catering and commercial facilities. Surface disinfection uses special disinfectants that are effective against a wide range of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.

This is where surface disinfectants are used
Whether in professional kitchens, hospitals or food production facilities, work surfaces are exposed to constant contact and contamination. Therefore, effective disinfection of surfaces is not only recommended, but also mandatory. Special disinfectants for surfaces offer you the optimum solution here: they clean thoroughly and reliably destroy germs and bacteria.
Disinfectants for work surfaces and other surfaces
The Franz Mensch range includes both alcoholic and alcohol-free surface disinfectants. No matter which product you choose, all Hygoclean brand disinfectants meet the highest quality standards and are ready for immediate use.

Disinfection or cleaning: What is the difference?
The main difference between disinfection and cleaning is the objective and effect.
- Goal: To remove visible dirt, stains, dust and other contaminants from surfaces, objects or hands.
- Procedure: Contaminants are removed by mechanical action (e.g., wiping, scrubbing) and the use of cleaning agents.
- Result: A clean, but not necessarily germ-free surface. Cleaning reduces the number of microorganisms but does not eliminate them completely.
- Goal: To kill or inactivate microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi on surfaces or objects to prevent the transmission of disease.
- Procedure: Use of special chemical agents (disinfectants) or physical methods (e.g., heat, UV light) with the goal of destroying or rendering harmless microorganisms.
- Result: a low-germ to germ-free surface.
What applies to surface disinfection in the care and patient environment?
Surface disinfection in the patient environment, especially in hospitals and care facilities, is critical to minimize the risk of infection. The following principles apply to surface disinfection in the patient environment:
Proper selection of disinfectant: A disinfectant should be selected that is effective against the microorganisms found in the facility. For medical areas, experts recommend using alcohol-free disinfectants. Tip: Fast-acting surface disinfection from Hygoclean
Cleaning before disinfection: Before disinfection, the surface should be thoroughly cleaned to remove organic and inorganic materials that could affect the effectiveness of the disinfectant.
Observe exposure time: Disinfectants must remain on the surface for a specified time to be effective. Exact exposure times are described in the product description or instructions.
Regularity: Surfaces in the patient environment should be disinfected regularly, especially those that are frequently touched, such as door handles, bed frames and light switches.
Safety: Personnel should always use recommended protective measures, such as gloves or goggles, when handling disinfectants. Also, ensure good ventilation to avoid inhalation of vapors.
Staff training: staff should be regularly trained and informed about the correct techniques of cleaning and disinfection, as well as the hazards and precautions to be taken when using disinfectants.
Surface disinfection in the patient environment is an essential part of infection prevention and should be performed with the utmost care to ensure patient and staff safety.
The topic of contact time: what should be considered?
Different disinfectants have different formulations and therefore require different exposure times. In many cases, exposure times for surface disinfectants are in the range of a few minutes or, for rapid disinfections, only a few seconds. However, it is essential to follow the manufacturer's specific recommendations to ensure effective disinfection. You will find specific instructions on the exposure time for each surface disinfectant on the label or in the product information. In addition, some microorganisms, such as certain bacterial spores or viruses, are more resistant to disinfectants and require longer exposure times. A longer exposure time may also be required in the case of heavier soiling.
Which measures belong to the basic rules of surface disinfection?
To ensure effective and safe surface disinfection, the following basic rules should be observed:
- First clean, then disinfect, in order to use the full effect of the surface disinfection.
- The disinfectant selected should be effective against the relevant microorganisms and approved for the intended application.
- For effective disinfection, the disinfectant must remain on the surface for the exposure time specified by the manufacturer.
- Carefully follow the manufacturer's application instructions and concentration recommendations.
- Disposable wipes or special disinfectant wipes help to avoid cross-contamination. If reusable wipes are used, they must be washed regularly and also disinfected.
- When handling disinfectants, protective measures such as wearing gloves should be observed.
- The surfaces to be disinfected should be checked regularly for cleanliness and the condition of the disinfection. Tip: CleanCard - the hygiene quick test
- Disinfectants should be stored according to the manufacturer's recommendations and used within the expiration date.
Staff should receive regular training on the proper use and hazards of disinfectants.
