What is the meaning of Cleaning?

Only refers to the removal of visible dirt and grime from surfaces. The purpose of cleaning is to make an area look more presentable and to remove any immediate health hazards posed by visible debris. However, cleaning does not necessarily kill all bacteria or viruses; for that, disinfection is necessary. workplaces, manufacturing places, hotels, and other public places must be cleaned regularly to create a safe environment for employees and customers.

In healthcare settings, cleaning is especially important in preventing the spread of infection. Surfaces must be cleaned with the proper products and techniques to ensure a safe and healthy environment.

What is the meaning of Sanitation?

Sanitation is the process of cleaning and removing all dirt, organic matter, and dangerous microorganisms from surfaces. Sanitizing goes one step further by using chemicals or heat to kill any remaining bacteria. Sanitation is essential in a crowded work environment and in hotels, healthcare facilities, and other places where cleanliness is critical. An adequately sanitized workspace helps to ensure a safe workplace and helps to prevent the spread of illness.

In addition, it can also help to avoid cross-contamination. As a result, proper sanitation is an essential part of any business that deals with food or other sensitive materials.
