Electrostatic disinfection in a classroom

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work? And What are the Benefits?  

When considering the best way to get a surface clean, traditional wet and dry cleaning methods like dusting are likely the first method that comes to mind. However, in reality, they do little besides spreading the dirt and filth around. In addition, sometimes objects or surfaces that need attention are oddly shaped or hard to physically get to, making it difficult or impossible to clean them. Therefore, especially in highly sensitive areas like labs, health care facilities, schools, and other commercial facilities it’s important to truly clean these surfaces without redistributing the dirt back into the air or on other surfaces. For situations like this, when disinfection is immensely important as is ongoing cleanliness, electrostatic disinfection can be the answer.

What is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic disinfection is a commercial cleaning service that cleans and disinfects a vast array of surfaces quickly, providing a clean atmosphere for an office, educational facility, retirement facility, healthcare facility and so much more. It utilizes a disinfecting solution that is applied via an electrostatic applicator or sprayer. This is not a cleaning solution in and of itself, and should not take the place of traditional cleaning methods entirely, but it can be a great way to disinfect a large amount of surfaces quickly in a commercial or public space. This is typically done after the area has been wiped down, and visible debris has been removed. In other words, it’s the last step in a cleaning process to create a clean environment in a commercial location.

How Does it Work?

The way that electrostatic disinfection works is actually based in science. To put it simply, it works by providing a charge to the solution as it leaves the sprayer or applicator so that all the solution is electromagnetically charged. This means it sticks to the surfaces, and provides 360-degree coverage, which cannot be duplicated by hand application. This works because surfaces are generally neutral in terms of their electrostatic charge, so the charged solution will be attracted to the surface.

What are the Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfecting My Business?

There are many benefits of this type of final step cleaning. The following are just a few of the most notable:

Extensive Cleaning: Even when great care is spent, there will be spots that are missed when cleaning traditionally. Corners, crevices, and more can be impossible to reach. However, with electrostatic disinfection, all surfaces are cleaned completely and thoroughly.

Time Saver: This works quickly and efficiently meaning that less physical time is required to complete this process than would be required if done by hand.

No Rags: Another benefit of this type of disinfection is there is no need for rags or towels to complete the process. It works without these items as it takes place after dirt particles and debris have been removed as a last step to create a safe, healthy environment.

No Cross-Contamination: With other disinfection methods, spraying and then wiping is necessary. Unfortunately, this can cause cross-contamination by using a rag or towel that has been contaminated on another surface that isn’t fully disinfected. This spreads germs and can actually make a facility dirtier germ wise. Thankfully, there is no risk of cross-contamination with electrostatic disinfection because there is no need to use rags or towels to wipe off surfaces afterward.
