Clean gross filth or dirt off of the surface you intend to disinfect with soap and water or other cleaning agents. Any application of disinfectant, on a non-clean surface, will not be sufficient. If the surface is not clean, you are not disinfecting.
Apply disinfectant with a sprayer on touchpoints (doorknobs, keyboards, faucets, light switches, phones, toilets, touchscreen, handrails, etc.). And to horizontal surfaces (dressers, nightstands, desks, bookcases, countertops, tables, entertainment centers, floors).
Allow the proper Dwell Time (wet/contact time) for the disinfectant to disinfect. If the dwell time is decreased, the disinfectant has only cleaned the surface, NOT disinfected. I see this habit of spraying disinfectant and immediately wiping the surface, far too often. The Label is the law and must be followed for the disinfectant to work.
- Wipe the surfaces after the Dwell Time has elapsed.
