Let’s face it we hate the dark – not because it is dark but rather because one of our most used senses, sight, is not at its best in the dark. Color disappears or is muted. Depth of vision is restricted because our ability to gather light from the surrounding area is diminished making it possible for someone or something to hide. We are afraid of bacteria and viruses because they exist for all intents and purposes, in the dark. They are too small for us to see and feel. Sometimes we can smell their effect but only because of the reaction of the organic matter being destroyed. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, the philosopher in the late 18th century, thought he was a “superman” until he was brought to his knees by a lowly bacterium, showing that sometimes the unseen presents a dire threat.
Since viruses linger in the dark and cannot be seen we often sacrifice efficacy on the altar of efficiency. To be efficient with our time we look for what is the quickest, cheapest, and easiest disinfectant to use? With our constant lack of time some people look for ways to only clean occasionally or infrequently missing out on the efficacy (effectiveness) of disinfecting.
Disinfection (or decontamination) is an ongoing process subject to the movement of people through space, and what those people leave behind. Infrequent or improper cleaning is one of the causes of hospital-acquired infections like MRSA, VRE etc. Complete cleaning and disinfection are critical for properly functioning healthcare systems, school districts, sports venues, airplanes, and any public or commercial space where people congregate.
