Decontamination is the process of removing or neutralizing pollutants such as microorganisms or harmful substances including chemicals, radioactive substances, and infectious diseases.
The purpose of decontamination is to prevent the spread of microorganisms and other harmful pollutants that could endanger human or animal health or harm the environment.
Contaminants or other names of exemptions are commonly used in the medical environment, including dentistry, surgery, veterinary science, food preparation, environmental science and forensic science.
Among the decontamination methods are physical cleaning, sanitization, disinfection and sterilization.
Physical cleaning is the process of removing unwanted materials such as impurities, infectious agents, and other impurities from an object or environment.

Soap & Detergent
