Why do we need to use disinfectants?
We are constantly exposed to various micro-organisms in our daily lives. Most of these micro-organisms are harmless, and some are actually beneficial to keeping us healthy. But some micro-organisms can be harmful and cause real health hazards such as food poisoning, sickness & diarrhoea and coughs and cold.
These harmful micro-organisms are known as 'germs'. These "germs" live all around us on surfaces, in the air, in plants, pets and people. Examples of harmful micro-organisms are:
- bacteria e.g. salmonella which can cause food poisoning
- viruses e.g. rhinovirus which can cause colds
- Fungi e.g. candida which can cause thrush.
Disinfection reduces the number of micro-organisms to a level not harmful to health.
