What is the difference between Sterilizing and Disinfecting?
CDC Definition of Terms
Sterilization describes a process that destroys or eliminates all forms of microbial life and is carried out in health-care facilities by physical or chemical methods. Steam under pressure, dry heat, EtO gas, hydrogen peroxide gas plasma, and liquid chemicals are the principal sterilizing agents used in health-care facilities. Sterilization is intended to convey an absolute meaning; unfortunately, however, some health professionals and the technical and commercial literature refer to “disinfection” as “sterilization” and items as “partially sterile.” When chemicals are used to destroy all forms of microbiologic life, they can be called chemical sterilants. These same germicides used for shorter exposure periods also can be part of the disinfection process (i.e., high-level disinfection).
Disinfection describes a process that eliminates many or all pathogenic microorganisms, except bacterial spores, on inanimate objects (Tables 1 and 2). In health-care settings, objects usually are disinfected by liquid chemicals or wet pasteurization. Each of the various factors that affect the efficacy of disinfection can nullify or limit the efficacy of the process.
Factors that affect the efficacy of both disinfection and sterilization include prior cleaning of the object; organic and inorganic load present; type and level of microbial contamination; concentration of and exposure time to the germicide; physical nature of the object (e.g., crevices, hinges, and lumens); presence of biofilms; temperature and pH of the disinfection process; and in some cases, relative humidity of the sterilization process (e.g., ethylene oxide).
Unlike sterilization, disinfection is not sporicidal. A few disinfectants will kill spores with prolonged exposure times (3–12 hours); these are called chemical sterilants. At similar concentrations but with shorter exposure periods (e.g., 20 minutes for 2% glutaraldehyde), these same disinfectants will kill all microorganisms except large numbers of bacterial spores; they are called high-level disinfectants. Low-level disinfectants can kill most vegetative bacteria, some fungi, and some viruses in a practical period of time (≤10 minutes). Intermediate-level disinfectants might be cidal for mycobacteria, vegetative bacteria, most viruses, and most fungi but do not necessarily kill bacterial spores. Germicides differ markedly, primarily in their antimicrobial spectrum and rapidity of action.
Cleaning is the removal of visible soil (e.g., organic and inorganic material) from objects and surfaces and normally is accomplished manually or mechanically using water with detergents or enzymatic products. Thorough cleaning is essential before high-level disinfection and sterilization because inorganic and organic materials that remain on the surfaces of instruments interfere with the effectiveness of these processes. Decontamination removes pathogenic microorganisms from objects so they are safe to handle, use, or discard.
Terms with the suffix cide or cidal for killing action also are commonly used. For example, a germicide is an agent that can kill microorganisms, particularly pathogenic organisms (“germs”). The term germicide includes both antiseptics and disinfectants. Antiseptics are germicides applied to living tissue and skin; disinfectants are antimicrobials applied only to inanimate objects. In general, antiseptics are used only on the skin and not for surface disinfection, and disinfectants are not used for skin antisepsis because they can injure skin and other tissues. Virucide, fungicide, bactericide, sporicide, and tuberculocidal can kill the type of microorganism identified by the prefix. For example, a bactericide is an agent that kills bacteria. 13-18
When should you call a Commercial Disinfecting Service Like Ultra Safe Pest Management?
Anytime you want to thoroughly clean and disinfect a compromised environment. For example, use it in the aftermath of a flood to control contamination, disease-breeding conditions and areas at risk of being contaminated by virus and other harmful organisms.
Professional Sanitizing & Disinfecting Services for rodent and wild animal damage or infestation. Our experts remove debris and disinfect areas that may be contaminated with dangerous organisms.
Problem animals and rodents can cause many forms of damage. Direct physical damage is often cause when the rodents or wildlife attempts to enter a property or structure. Common areas of wildlife damage include roof trim, soffits, gable vents, dormers, siding, and other entry points around a structure.
Once inside, significant animal damage occurs to ceilings, walls, wires, utility lines, insulation, flooring and personal belongs. Damage happens when animals shred materials for nesting and den sites too. More important than physical damage is the risk of spreading disease after contaminating attics, crawlspaces and other areas with animal waste and related organisms.
Commercial Sanitizing & Remediation Services For Rodent & Animal Debris
- Vacuum droppings and debris with industry specific HEPA Vac
- Sanitize affected areas with professional equipment & sanitizers
- Pressure Washing
- Damaged Insulation Removal
- Gutter Cleaning
- Disposal Services
- Damage Repair
Rodents and problem animals can cause extensive damage to structures. Our Commercial Sanitizing & Remediation Services attack harmful debris, droppings, bat guano and contaminated insulation that are the result of pest and wildlife activity. This debris and the animals themselves, can pose a serious health risk to people and domestic animals.
The guano or bat droppings need to be removed and the area sanitized by a professional. Special protective equipment should be worn. Ultra Safe is equipped with special industry-specific HEPA vacuums, pressure washers, sanitizing materials and safety equipment to properly remove all bat related debris. We restore all types of attic insulation.
