Why do we need to use disinfectants?


We are constantly exposed to various microorganisms in our daily lives. Most of these microorganisms are harmless, and some actually help to keep us healthy. But some microorganisms can be harmful and cause real health hazards such as food poisoning, sickness and diarrhoea, and coughs and colds. These harmful microorganisms are known as 'germs'. These "germs" live all around us on surfaces, in the air, in plants, pets and people. Examples of harmful microorganisms include:

  • 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 microorganisms to a level not harmful to health. When diluted 1 part Zoflora to 40 parts water, Zoflora antibacterial disinfectant kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria found in the home.
