Dwell time, or Contact time, is the amount of time that a surface must remain wet to allow the
chemical to be in contact with an organism in order to kill it. The dwell time of a product will
vary by chemical manufacturer and can be found on the product label. Typical disinfectant dwell
times range between 2-10 minutes. It is important to consider the dwell time as a factor when
determining which disinfectant to use. Always make sure to read the chemical label prior to
use and wear the recommended PPE.
