Protel SS Surface Disinfectant works by destroying the cell wall of microbes or interfering with their metabolism. This disinfectant is frequently used in hospitals, dental surgeries, kitchens, and bathrooms to kill infectious organisms. And regular cleaning of surfaces in the home removes dirt and food particles on which germs can grow. Protel SS Surface Disinfectant can prevent infections that develop during hospitalization that are neither present nor incubating at the time of a patient's admission. Personal cleansing and household cleaning products that contain an active antibacterial or antimicrobial ingredient provide extra protection against germs, including those that may cause disease.
