Disinfecting: Are you using the right product?

Should you clean or disinfect? Sanitize or sterilize? In recent months, the need has grown for new procedures in public and commercial spaces, businesses and factories. Simple actions such as cleaning have taken on a whole new dimension, with a shift toward genuine and necessary disinfection.

In this time of significant public health requirements, and out of a desire to help protect the environment, we provide you with versatile and highly effective disinfectants. Our products are non-toxic, non-corrosive, and environmentally friendly. Most importantly, they kill virtually all surface germs that are harmful to humans.

Versatile and effective disinfection, by leveraging the forces of nature

Currently, disinfection is what is most needed. Our range of Thymox cleaning products has been formulated to deliver effective disinfection. Our technology is biodegradable and safe for the environment, as it is composed of a botanical active ingredient derived from thyme oil, called thymol.

All the products in our Thymox range provide you with the professional-grade disinfection you need. Thanks to their versatility, they clean, sanitize and deodorize, all at once. Rather impressive, wouldn’t you say? What’s more, they require no personal protective equipment (PPE) or special protection for users.

Disinfection: What is it?

To understand why Thymox MultiSurface disinfectants are essential in helping your organization protect people and the environment, check out the following brief explanation of their different cleaning actions.

When it comes to cleaning spaces, surfaces and objects, there are 4 levels of action. Disinfection is one of them. Remember that only disinfection can kill viruses, such as COVID-19, along with bacteria and other germs. Disinfecting makes spaces and objects safe for people.

1- Cleaning

Cleaning means removing anything that might contaminate a surface, from dust and grime to allergens and chemical residues. Cleaning requires a cleaning agent or detergent. This is an important daily action, but it is not sufficient to protect people’s health.

2- Sanitizing

Sanitizing reduces the number of microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi, and limits their proliferation, by means of a specific product. But this action does not kill viruses or certain bacteria, including those that are resistant to antibiotics. This means that sanitizing won’t fully eliminate viruses and even some bacteria.


3- Disinfecting

Disinfecting kills, destroys or neutralizes bacteria and viruses, some of which are harmful to health, by means of suitable products. Proper disinfection requires a specific disinfecting product, which must always be used according to the instructions.

4- Sterilizing

Sterilizing is a rare and even more specialized action. It kills all microorganisms, good or bad, on treated objects and surfaces. Sterilization is achieved through a specific process and is required in certain settings such as laboratories, hospitals, and dentists’ and doctors’ offices.
