Electrostatic Spraying

Disinfecting services have been important for as long as they have been around. For obvious reasons, at the beginning of last year, they took on a whole new importance. Newer, more enhanced disinfecting solutions were even introduced by way of Emergency Authorization by the FDA as a result of COVID-19.

However, even the most experienced and effective professional disinfecting services companies sometimes fall short in maximizing their efforts. Enter electrostatic disinfecting. Maybe you’ve never heard of it. Maybe you’ve heard of it, but you don’t know what it is. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here’s all you need to know about electrostatic disinfecting services, and why it’s still important for your facility:

What Is Electrostatic Disinfecting?

Electrostatic disinfecting is a process that uses a specialized sprayer. The sprayer distributes a positively charged disinfecting solution that bonds with any negatively charged surface. Through this process, a much more even and complete coat of disinfecting solution is distributed, ensuring maximum effect. It’s a much more reliable process than traditional disinfecting services that use normal sprayers, much less professional services that use regular spray bottles, and man-powered application and wiping. Not to take away from the hardworking professionals in the industry, but in this case it’s a good idea to eliminate human error!

Why Is It Important?

The fact is that traditional disinfecting services rely on people, and people can’t see and reach every corner and surface in even the most basic facilities. Even with an industrial disinfectant sprayer, the application of disinfectant solution isn’t perfect. Often, the traditional process isn’t sufficient enough to eliminate germs, bacteria, viruses and other pathogens. This poses an obvious risk to those who use your facilities.

Ensuring that the disinfecting solution reaches every surface, however hard-to-reach, as well as providing an even coat of solution so that every surface is sufficiently disinfected, is extremely important. Electrostatic disinfecting checks those boxes.

Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfecting

There are many benefits to electrostatic disinfecting. One benefit is the efficiency of the process. In order to achieve the same effectiveness, traditional disinfecting services would need more staff, require more time, and would likely cost you more, and still wouldn’t be able to guarantee a comparable outcome.

Another benefit is, for lack of a better term, peace of mind. Electrostatic disinfecting, again, is a process that ensures that disinfecting solution evenly reaches every corner and surface of your facility – even the places that are impossible for humans to reach. At the same time, it kills 99.9% of pathogens for up to 30 days, including influenza and COVID-19.

It’s really a no-brainer! Disinfecting services should already be important for your facility. By that logic alone, electrostatic disinfecting services should hold the same importance, if not more. Your facility will appreciate the upgrade!
