Disinfection

Get to Know Daycon’s Disinfectants

Keeping your facility and its occupants safe has always been a top priority at Daycon and the Coronavirus only pushed us further in that truth. Disinfecting has always been a crucial part of the cleaning process but we realize may have also been a step overlooked prior to COVID-19 that now cannot afford to be overlooked.

Disinfectants vs. Cleaners: What’s the Difference?

Cleaning is the removal of germs and dirt from surfaces.
Disinfecting is the process of killing germs on surfaces.
