|No rinsing required||Physical cleaning requires contact through wiping and rinsing|
|Leaves no residue behind after treatment||May leave behind residual marks|
|Solution propellant allows for the disinfection of high, hard-to-reach areas||Limits vertical reach and restricts access to awkward or tight areas|
|A strong deodorizer||Average effectiveness as a deodorizer|
|A guarantee that all high touch objects and high-risk surfaces are disinfected||Manual clean with spray and wipes give the opportunity for missed areas|
|Perfect instrument and surface compatibility||Can corrode instruments and metallic surfaces|
|Handheld application and allows for no-touch disinfection||Requires direct interaction with contaminated surfaces|
|Features a particle size as low as 0.05 microns to reach spaces most traditional cleaners cannot||Relies on surface coverage with (Human) cleaner, leading to possible untreated areas|
|Gentle, non-corrosive application||Relies on physical contact of cleaning medium to surface, risking abrasion and wear-and-tear|
|Kills on contact with 5-second application time per square foot||Depending on the method of application, may require longer application times|
|Handheld applicator assists in distributing solution evenly over surfaces and reaches surfaces that wipes cannot reach||Physical application risks uneven application, oversight and human limitation on reaching high surfaces and inside of cabinets|
|Aerosolized application that spreads like a gas-going above, beyond, under, and around disinfecting sprays and wipes||Old fashion direct spray and wipes have a limitation to the spray pattern and width. Higher chances of missing some areas|
|No cross-contamination risk||Sprays, wipes, and sponges have risks of cross contamination between treated surfaces|
