Decontamination is the process of cleansing a surface to remove contaminates such as micro-organisms or hazardous materials (chemicals, radioactive substances, and infectious disease). There are three main types of decontamination- sanitizing, disinfecting, and sterilizing.

Sanitizing-the process of reducing the number of bacterial contaminants to safer levels. Sanitizing is the least invasive form of decontamination because it is only reducing the number of bacterial contaminates-not killing

Disinfecting-a process that eliminates many or all pathogenic microorganisms, except bacterial spores.

Sterilization-a process that destroys or eliminates all forms of microbial live and is carried out in a health-care facility or chemical methods. This is the highest form of decontamination.
