understanding the four factors of clean

At Ecolab, we recognize that choosing the correct cleaning product is only one piece of the cleaning procedure. Understanding and optimizing the complete cleaning process is critical to ensuring an effective and consistent cleaning and sanitation program.

Any process requires a combination of the 4 factors of clean - Time, Temperature, Chemistry and Mechanical Action. Each cleaning procedure will utilize some combination of all 4 factors, although the amount of each factor may vary for each process.
