What is Electrostatic Disinfection? How Does it Work?

Running a business or managing a commercial property means keeping the space clean and healthy. Not only for your employees but for clients who are coming and going.

As we have learned from COVID-19, spaces that experience a high volume of people passing through, become breeding grounds for germs, bacteria, and viruses.

There are a variety of disinfectant methods that exist making the process much more effective and efficient, including electrostatic disinfectant.

What is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic disinfection is a method of disinfecting that uses a system that turns liquid into aerosols and then applies a charge. These aerosols are attracted to surfaces using electrostatic forces greater than gravity.

Due to the electrostatic forces, these droplets do not just fall onto the surfaces. The droplets repel from each other and cling to the surrounding surfaces with opposite charges. As a result, the disinfectant solution clings to the entire surface rather than slowly sliding off if it’s not flat.

This comes in handy for environments where there are a lot of odd surfaces such as gyms with various types of equipment. Electrostatic sprayers cover hard-to-reach spaces around your business or commercial space. It also allows for a more efficient way to disinfect large surfaces and high traffic areas. With electrostatic disinfection, you achieve great coverage in less time.

It should be noted that cleaning and disinfecting should be done together. That is the best way to keep your work or home environment as safe and as clean as possible.

How Electrostatic Disinfection is Used in Commercial Cleaning

A professional disinfectant crew will know the right technology to use for your specific needs. However, electrostatic cleaning has become a common method used for commercial cleaning.

Electrostatic disinfectant sprayers that are usually used by professionals are a battery operated backpack style cleaner. With this contraption, they’re able to cover an immense amount of square footage in one go. The disinfectant solution is sprayed across all surfaces resulting in even coverage and using less solution.

Disinfecting a commercial space is crucial because it impacts your bottom line. If your employees are constantly getting sick, that will impact your daily operations and overall productivity levels. As well, clients need to feel safe and assured when entering your place of business. When viruses spread, it’s important to stay on top of cleaning and disinfecting high traffic areas.
