The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends cleaning and disinfecting high-touch points frequently to stop the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). Electrostatic Disinfection helps you save time and money while creating a healthier work environment.
Electrostatic Disinfection 101
On the other hand, Electrostatic Disinfection kills 99.999% of harmful pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) in a matter of minutes. But how?
It’s simple. Following the principle of charge interaction (opposites attract and likes repel), electrostatic sprayers apply a positive charge to the disinfecting solution as it passes through the sprayer nozzle.
In other words, the charge created by the electrostatic sprayer makes the disinfectant wraparound the targeted area; reaching nooks and crannies that manual disinfection often misses.
After proper dwell time, treated surfaces air dry, and rooms are thoroughly sanitized in minutes
Is Electrostatic Disinfection Worth It?
Facilities are full of “high-touch points,” or anywhere you put your hands often. That means elevator buttons, doorknobs, switches, countertops, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, and more.
According to CDC guidelines, high-touch points should be cleaned and disinfected more frequently than surfaces with minimal hand contact to help break the chain of infection.
Not only does Electrostatic Disinfection guarantee a wider and further spread of the disinfectant, behind and over hidden surfaces, but it is also eco-friendlier; using about 65% less disinfectant per square foot than manual disinfection.
What’s more, electrostatic spraying can be safely performed around electronics, including tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, and ATM machines.
Is It Effective Against Coronavirus?
For example, at Newline Eco-friendly Cleaning Services, we work exclusively with EvaClean’s PURTABS, a powerful and versatile disinfecting and sanitizing solution that is safer than bleach and eliminates 99.999% of Coronaviruses in one minute.
For this reason, it is important to implement an infection control plan that suits your needs.
Is Electrostatic Disinfection Expensive?
No. Electrostatic Disinfection is relatively cheap, costing cents per square foot on average.
