All Unico Disinfectants have been tested using European Standard methods to give a bacteria reduction greater than log 5, which means the bactericidal reduction is 99.999%.
Bacterial Efficacy of 99.9% is a log 3 reduction, and does not meet the European Standard.
A product killing 99.9% of bacteria leaves 1,000 bacteria for every million on the surface, a product killing 99.999% of bacteria leaves 10 bacteria for every million on the surface. In 2 hours 1000 bacteria could grow to 256000; whilst 10 bacteria would grow to 256. Whilst using an EN tested disinfectant, giving a 99.999% reduction in bacteria will minimise the number of remaining bacteria it will not wipe them out completely. The major problem is the speed at which the remaining bacteria grow. A number of factors affect the growth rate e.g. Temperature and presence of water; the surface and level of contamination. Good cleaning practices with effective cleaning and disinfectant products on a regular basis will minimise the number of bacteria. Unico disinfectants are all fully compatible with each other and are water based.
