What is Electrostatic Disinfection?
Electrostatic spray disinfection is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialized disinfectant solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that effectively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they are aimed at.
For awkwardly shaped objects, varying surfaces or hard to reach places, cleaning staff only have to point and spray; the nature of the misting process allows it to cover surfaces evenly, and coat objects—even if the mist is only sprayed from one side. After the spray is applied, the sanitizing agent works to disinfect the covered surfaces. For this reason, electrostatic spray is an excellent solution for all areas that have probability of germs, virus or emerging pathogen build-up.
How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?
Electrostatic spray is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate sanitizers and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a more complete clean. As the chemical exits the electrostatic sprayer, it’s given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient.
Is Electrostatic Spray Disinfection Right for My Business?
If your building, store or facility has continuous employee or patron traffic making it a candidate for the accumulation of germs or virus transmission, then yes, electrostatic spray cleaning is the safest and most effective option versus fogging or other methods which require the product to be airborne or drifting for extended periods of time. Instead, our electrostatic application allows for the disinfectant product to be on the targeted surface in seconds.
The main features and benefits of electrostatic spray disinfection include:
- Reduces the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places by 50% compared to conventional methods
- Improves infection control and the spread of viruses such as influenza, MRSA, HIV and many others
- Applies chemicals in a more efficient, controlled manner, eliminating the dangers of overuse
- Prevents costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections
For desktops, floors and walls that need to be spotless, electrostatic spray cleaning is the best option. The same goes for equipment and hard to reach places; if a piece of equipment is heavily trafficked, electrostatic spray cleaning in the most comprehensive way to remove germs and dirt.
