Electrostatic disinfectants offer a simple, quick, safe way to eliminate traces of COVID-19 virus and other illness-causing microorganisms. When performed by trained professionals, electrostatic disinfection works powerfully to sanitize virtually any type of surface, and can serve as an excellent complement to UVC disinfection devices that utilize ultraviolet light to thwart pathogens.
The electrostatic disinfection process begins with a sprayer that disperses a cleansing agent into the air. This creates a fog or mist that spreads throughout the area in a more or less uniform manner.
The mist is composed of tiny droplets (about 10-50 microns) that were electrostatically charged as they were dispensed from the sprayer. These positively charged particles circulate around the area, where they cling to all the various negatively charged surfaces and enable the sanitizing chemical to settle in properly.
As the positively charged particles form a layer on a surface, they begin to repel other positive particles. This natural phenomenon has the effect of ensuring the even, efficient distribution of sanitizer and preventing an excessive amount of chemical from coming to rest on exposed surfaces.
Electrostatic disinfectant equipment provides a number of benefits that make it an ideal tool for keeping rooms free of harmful microorganisms. These benefits include:
Speed – If you need to clean up a room quickly, electrostatic disinfectant sprayers are faster—several times faster, in fact—than manual spray-and-wipe methods. You only need a few minutes to cover a typical room when you use electrostatic disinfection devices, while it takes considerably longer for people to clean a room with handheld sprays and rags. After the disinfectant has set for twenty minutes, you’re ready to go.
Full coverage – Electrostatic sprayers are capable of covering every surface in a room, including the walls and ceiling. The mist even captures airborne particles. By comparison, conventional cleaning personnel may find it impractical or impossible to reach certain areas, or they could simply forget to clean a few spots.
Odor removal – Disinfecting a room also tends to bring the side benefit of getting rid of molds and other pathogens that produce foul odors. Because these kinds of organisms often linger in out-of-the-way and hard-to-reach areas, electrostatic equipment is far more effective at removing them than standard cleaning methods. This helps improve your indoor air quality.
Safety – Electrostatic disinfectant devices release FDA-approved chemicals that effectively eliminate pathogens without posing a risk to people. These chemicals can even be applied safely on surfaces used for food preparation.
Easy preparation process – There is little that needs to be done to get a room or area prepared for electrostatic disinfection. It’s a good idea to remove paper products from the vicinity, but most types of objects—including plastics, electronics, and fabrics—will not be harmed by the mist generated by the electrostatic disinfectant sprayer.
