‘Disinfection is defined as the treatment of surfaces/equipment using physical or chemical means such that the amount of microorganisms present is reduced to an acceptable level’ (Krop, 1990).
Disinfecting is essential, you can find it in hospitals and laboratories for example. But the gases which can occur during the disinfection process can also be dangerous. A major disinfectant is Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2). Exposure to this gas can cause serious harm to your health. Frequent symptoms are for example breathing difficulty, chest pain, or even seizures.
Protect yourself, decide on a gas detector. We have multiple solutions available, like our PDM+ H2O2.
