All About Disinfection

In this section we focus on articles regarding methods of Disinfection related to COVID as well as Mold. We also focus on assessing Disinfection success. 

Disinfection is killing of microorganisms. Contrast with Cleaning which is removing microorganisms [for both air and surfaces.] Topics include: Disinfection methods/procedures & disinfection products/technologies.

The focus is on green, chemical-free disinfection in residential and commercial facilities (non-health care settings). Also see discussion of Disinfection under CIRI.

It cannot distinguish between viable or dead microbial growth. It is not used for testing the air.
