At Microclean we are experts in microbiological disinfection. This means that our field of action is pathogenic microorganisms, i.e. those microorganisms such as viruses, fungi and bacteria that affect the health of human beings.

Our field of action is focused on a kind of threat invisible to the human eye, but sometimes lethal. And even if it is not lethal, the health complications of a contagion by a strain incompatible with the human organism of a virus or fungus can have serious health consequences for life. viruses, fungi or bacteriacan have serious consequences for life-long health.

For this reason, when we are often asked about technical cleanings, we are often asked about the technical cleaning -For this reason, when we are often asked about technical cleanings, such as cleaning of common tanks and separators without biological irrigation, extraction hoods in kitchens, cleaning of industrial machinery, even urban cleaning of furniture and pavements, graffiti, etc., we are obliged to explain their differences.


Differences between disinfection and cleaning of microorganisms

Primarily, all cleaning is defined by the process, techniques and methodologies used for the removal of surfaces. However, a microorganism of any kind is not exactly dirt, although in many cases it is a consequence of dirt.

Therefore, let's break down the main differences between technical cleaning and microbiological disinfection:

  • Although both actions require qualified equipment and suitable equipment, the former does not entail the added hazard of handling specific biocides for the disinfection of microorganisms.
  • The consequences of poor handling or dilution ratio or combination of chemicals are also not comparable.
  • Although technical cleanings involve disinfection processes, their level of performance, that is, their depth or specificity in eliminating the microorganisms we are talking about, cannot be compared to the disinfection we perform at Microclean. high-level disinfection that we perform at Microclean.
  • There are also different levels of danger depending on the pathogen to be treated. And, although humans are used to living with the most common and at the same time least harmful pathogens, it is true that they coexist with others whose consequences, such as salmonella, certain coronaviruses and bacteria, are lethal.

That said, it is clear that after the application of a well-executed technical cleaning we can guarantee hygiene levels. However, these will always be of zero or lesser efficacy compared to that provided by a high level microbiological disinfection in terms of elimination of pathogens.


How to perform high-level microbiological disinfection

In order to carry out a high-level microbiological disinfection, a previous cleaning is necessary; sometimes, a technical cleaning (which is determined by the characteristics of the surface or element to be disinfected). So we could say that both interventions can become allies .

In any case, it is given the circumstance that the chemical components used in microbiological disinfection can provide or achieve, with disinfection, the pre-cleaning conditions.

This would not be the case the other way around, as technical cleaning focuses on the dirt, while high-level disinfection acts on the deeper levels, where the microbiological threat is harbored.

Finally, the combination of the right technology with the right biocidal products guarantees the effectiveness of the treatments. treatments we perform at Microclean. These guarantee a healthy microbiological balance or its absolute elimination (depending on each case) and displace the bacteriological threat, however resistant it may be, quickly and permanently.
