Audience members will have the opportunity to share their opinions and insights as well.

Why Disinfection?

The idea for the panel discussion on disinfection came about after a P&G Professional survey revealed a lack of consistency and clarity across the industry when it came to processes, procedures and best practices for cleaning and disinfecting.

“One of the most important things for professional cleaners to remember is that they must both clean and disinfect,” says Tom Bell, a registered sanitarian associated with product safety and regulatory affairs for P&G Professional. “Cleaning well allows disinfecting agents to work effectively. We believe that, ultimately, multipurpose products provide the best value because, when used as directed, they can do both in a single step.”

According to Bell, “It is also imperative that cleaning professionals follow the instructions on the product label — regardless of the brand of product being used. The manufacturer knows how to best use the product for optimal cleaning and/or disinfecting results. A simple spray and wipe will typically kill some germs, but we want everyone, whether they are our customer or not, to be as effective as possible at creating clean environments for their guests. We believe that following label instructions is one of the best ways to do that.”

The development of this panel discussion was born from P&G Professional’s desire to help arm professional cleaners everywhere with the knowledge necessary to do the best job possible.

The experts featured on the panel will ensure a focused and impactful discussion.
