The EPA defines dwell time as:
“The amount of time that a sanitizer or disinfectant must be in contact with the surface, and remain wet, in order to achieve the product’s advertised kill rate."
In other words, this means leaving a disinfectant on a surface completely wet for a certain amount of time to disinfect it. To make sure you are disinfecting effectively and properly, it is imperative to abide by the disinfectant's dwell time. While dwell time varies based upon the disinfectant, most products on the market are 5-10 minutes.
However, there are some disinfectants available with shorter dwell times. This includes the disinfectants offered from Midwest Health Consultants, Inc.
