What is electrostatic Disinfection
Electrostatic disinfection spraying the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spraying uses a specialized solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they’re aimed at.
Electrostatic disinfection provides 360 degree disinfectant coverage
Electrostatic sprayers use positive and negative charges to make disinfecting solutions electromagnetically stick to targeted surfaces. For example, no matter which angle you disinfect a surface from, the charge created by the electrostatic sprayer makes the disinfectant wrap around and cling to the entire surface. The system is faster than traditional wiping and safe for people, animals and plants. Your facility is ready to use within minutes of application.
Electrostatic disinfection Against pathogens including COVID-19
The disinfectants we use are EPA registered and hold kill claims for viral, bacterial and fungal infections . Our job is to create safe spaces year round, not just during a pandemic. Done regularly, this is a service that can fight against the cold and flu all year long.
Offices, schools, prisons, nursing homes, churches, day cares, gyms, and other commercial settings are especially susceptible to germs and bacterial infestations, and not just during the cold and flu seasons.
Electrostatic Disinfection effectively kills and eliminates staph, E. coli, Legionella, listeria, salmonella and more; as well as viruses including H1N1, Hep A, B and C, Norovirus and Rotavirus among others.
The Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfection
- 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
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take?
This will depend on the size of the area being disinfected. According to EvaClean, it takes approximately 30-45 minutes to clean and disinfect each room in a hospital. The EvaClean system can reduce cleaning and disinfecting times by 40%. It is important to follow application instructions in order to meet kill claims. The system thoroughly disinfects within minutes. After that, you are ready to use your facility.
How long does it last
Electrostatic disinfection does not create a protective barrier. It disinfects, or kills, unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but won’t protect those surfaces from becoming infected again. That being said, institutions like medical facilities, schools and gyms may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are introduced to new, potentially harmful pathogens on a daily basis.
Is it safe around electronics?
Electrostatic disinfection can be safely performed around electronics such as laptops, monitors and keyboards as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.
Is it safe for plants?
Electrostatic disinfection will not harm your plants. The disinfectants we use are safe for people, animals and plants.
