Understanding International Disinfection Standards



Not many people know that not all disinfectants are effective at all levels. Even less people know that some cleaning companies say they use chemicals that will sanitise and disinfect but have no idea how and if they are truly effective.

While your cleaning company may get away with this when cleaning a normal home - when you need a professional and experienced company to sanitise a hazardous event to make safe for staff, children or animals knowledge of the disinfection log is very important.

At Shropshire Expert Cleaners we wanted to make sure you knew where our solutions are on the Internationally recognised disinfectant log:

LOG 1 - GRADE: CASUAL CLEANING

90% of bacteria killed (1 in 10 survive) - Possibility of resistance developing in microbial population.

LOG 2 - GRADE: CLEANING

99% of bacteria killed (1 in 100 survive) - Possibility of resistance developing in microbial population.

LOG 3 - GRADE: THOROUGH CLEANING

99.9% of bacteria killed (1 in 100 survive) - Still of resistance developing in microbial population.

LOG 4 - GRADE: SANITISING

99.99% of bacteria killed (1 in 10,000 survive) - Must achieve this for EN surface tests.

LOG 5 - GRADE: DISINFECTION

99.999% of bacteria killed (1 in 100,000 survive) - Basis of EN testing. Must achieve this for most suspension tests.

LOG 6 - GRADE: HIGH LEVEL DISINFECTION (THIS IS WHERE WE PROUDLY SIT)

99.9999% of bacteria killed (1 in 1,000,000 survive) - Using EN tests, a log six reduction would mean a 100% kill of bacteria in a test suspension.

Shropshire Expert Cleaners use 'Sterizar' solutions for clinical and heavy class deep cleans which drops straight to an Internationally recognised LOG 6.

We believe that the most dangerous things on Earth cannot be seen, smelt, touched, felt or tasted but easily transmitted by a handshake, sneeze or door handle or to baby crawling across the floor.
