Understanding Contact Time!

When you apply a disinfectant, you want to be sure it's really doing its job! After all, keeping your surfaces and equipment clean and disinfected is the key.

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a disinfectant is contact time (contact time or “Wet Time”). This time is how long a disinfectant needs to stay wet on a surface in order to be effective.

Contact times can range from as little as 15 seconds for common hand sanitizer too as long as 30 minutes. Specific products that require long contact times can evaporate before achieving disinfection such as in environments with high temperatures and low humidity this means that this infection will not be achieved with one application you will have to reapply the disinfectant.

A short contact time is always beneficial, it's even more important now during the COVID-19 pandemic and of course flu season. A shorter contact time means your staff can spend less time disinfecting reducing staffing needs.
