Disinfection uses antimicrobial agents on non-living objects or surfaces to destroy or inactivate microorganisms. Disinfectants may not kill all bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. Most disinfectants are weakened or inactivated by organic matter such as dirt and feces.

Example of disinfecting – removal of heavy debris by dry sweeping and or use of high volume hose or pressure washing. Application of sanitizing solution then let dry

Sanitation uses an antimicrobial agent on objects, surfaces or living tissue to reduce the number of disease-causing organisms to non-threatening levels. Sanitizing does not affect some spores and viruses.

Example of sanitation – removal of heavy debris by scrubbing, sweeping, or high volume hose or pressure washing. Application of detergent, rinse, application of sanitizer (Chlorine or other type), rinse with high volume hose or pressure washing

Sterilization is using chemicals, temperature, gas and/or pressure to kill or inactivate all disease-causing bacteria, spores, fungi and viruses.

Examples of sterilization – remove heavy debris by sweeping or high volume hose or pressure washing. Rinse with water and detergent. Incinerate debris and apply either ethylene oxide, hydrogen peroxide, or similar product. Alternative method is to clean surfaces using steam.
