What is Cleaning?
Cleaning is the process that refers to physically removing dirt, dust, germs, crumb, and other unwanted impurities from the surface. Keep in mind that cleaning will only release them or reduce the number of harmful microbes but will not kill them.
To clean the surface or object, you will likely use soap or detergent mixed with water to physically clean it. This process will make your surface clean and reduce the number of harmful germs but not completely kill them. So, the remaining fewer bacteria and viruses can spread infection and diseases to your family members.
What is Disinfecting?
Disinfecting makes use of chemical or antimicrobial agents basically to kill harmful microbes from the surface and objects. Unfortunately, the available disinfectants in the market mostly have bleach or alcohol solutions.

Always clean before disinfecting
For making your surface 100 percent clean and germ-free, it is essential that you should do cleaning first, followed by disinfecting. First of all, clean the area by removing the visible dirt, dust, and other waste materials. Cleaning will eliminate dirt and soils, making the surface and object to be disinfected.
After cleaning the surface properly, follow the procedure of disinfecting. It will kill the harmful microbes from the surface, blocking them from multiply in numbers and spreading infections to people.
