This is what you need to know:

Safety Profile:

Give priority to those items with low toxicity towards humans and animals alike since they will come into contact with them frequently during use. Take into account issues like skin irritation, respiratory impact among others related to safety. Additionally, go for non-corrosive substances which cannot stain or damage surfaces neither cause any allergies.

Contact Time:

Time taken by different disinfectants before for eliminating/activating the pathogen should also be considered when choosing a suitable one. Some may require longer periods than others hence affecting work flow within your facility if not carefully selected.

Environmental Impact:

Biodegradability of a disinfectant plus its potential contribution towards antimicrobial resistance are some of the things which should be considered. In other words, go for environmentally friendly products with minimal long-term effects on ecosystems.


Do comparisons based on concentration levels required, coverage area expected to be treated vis a vis frequency required etcetera so as to arrive at best decision that will save money without compromising safety or efficacy thus ensuring infection control is optimized always.
