How Electrostatic Sprayers Can Help Keep You Healthier
You’ve probably seen commercial cleaning companies, restaurants and others touting the use of electrostatic sprayers over the past few months. Electrostatic technology is the new standard in infection control. But do you know what makes electrostatic technology more effective than traditional cleaning methods?
Electrostatic sprayers and misters have provided a new and highly efficient method of applying a commercial-grade disinfectant.
An electrostatic sprayer places a positive charge on the liquid before it enters the nozzle, allowing the maximum levels of liquid to be charged and distributed onto negatively charged surfaces (most surfaces are either negative or neutral). The electrostatic spray allows the liquid to more completely cover the targeted surface and to be applied faster while using less liquid.
Why are electrostatic sprayers better than traditional cleaning methods?
One huge advantage to using electrostatic sprayers and misters is that disinfectant can be applied without a technician ever touching the surface.
In some cases, it is possible for the traditional spray-and-wipe technique of applying disinfectants to move bacteria from one surface to another. Using an electrostatic sprayer or mister can considerably reduce cross-contamination.
The sprayers also make it possible for technicians to sanitize even the hardest-to-reach corners and crevices. The disinfectant is simply applied and allowed to dry naturally on the targeted surfaces.
How does electrostatic technology keep office workers safe?
A comprehensive commercial cleaning schedule helps you to maintain a healthy workplace, and deep cleaning and regular disinfecting should be part of your cleaning program.
Cleaning lifts dirt off of surfaces, which is necessary to allow disinfectants to work effectively. Traditional cleaning keeps surfaces sanitized, while deep cleaning and disinfecting kills germs, such as bacteria, viruses and fungi. Routine disinfection helps to reduce the risk of COVID-19, flu and other respiratory illnesses.
Electrostatic technology provides an efficient and quick way to apply disinfection to common areas, personal spaces and hard-to-reach spots.
The sanitization provided by the electrostatic sprayer helps to reduce sick days and increase productivity by keeping a building healthy. From flu to coronavirus to the common cold, a proper cleaning and disinfecting routine can help to reduce the risk of unnecessary illness.
Why should you hire professionals to use electrostatic sprayers?
Although you might be wondering whether your business should invest in its own electrostatic sprayer, it would be safer and more economical for you to hire a professional, full-service cleaning company to handle your disinfecting needs.
A professional cleaning company trains their cleaning crews in the proper use of the technology and application of disinfectant, following manufacturer’s recommendations on dwell time as well as wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment.
Finally, consider the cost: Electrostatic sprayers and misters cost between $600 and $2,000 each, and that does not include the disinfectant needed. Both the equipment and chemicals are in high demand and short supply right now, so professional cleaning companies can typically obtain the necessary supplies from vendors with whom they have established relationships to ensure they have what they need to service their customers.
