What is rotational cleaning?

Cleanroom Rotational Cleaning

Rotational cleaning is the practise of using more than one disinfecting agent in your cleaning regime to maximise the kill spectrum of viable contamination within a cleanroom.

EU GMP Annex 1 states that more than one type of disinfecting agent with different modes of action should be used for maximum effectiveness against bacteria and fungi. The periodic use of a sporicidal agent is also endorsed.

A back up cleaning agent may be required in case of a build-up in resistance to other agents.

Microbial monitoring will detect any change to the room that may occur due to resistance to cleaning agent.
