Electrostatic Spray Technology
Electrostatic sprayers are an effective and efficient cleaning method available through janitorial providers. We use state-of-the-art electrostatic sprayers and misters to provide sanitization and disinfection services. Electrostatic disinfection services are ideally suited for common areas, personal spaces and hard-to-reach corners and crevices in the workplace. Electrostatic sprayers are vital in the fight against germs that cause COVID-19, flu and other respiratory illnesses.
High-traffic medical offices and clinics may need daily treatments, while places like veterinary clinics that may only allow “pet clientele” in the building may feel comfortable scheduling electrostatic disinfection once per week or less frequently. It is important to schedule traditional cleaning services on the same days as disinfection treatments, as surfaces must be cleaned and prepped before spraying disinfectant for maximum effectiveness. Electrostatic disinfection not only helps to keep employees and customers safe and healthy but also provides peace of mind for people with concerns for their health.
How to Verify Cleaning Products Used in Your Medical Facility
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a list of EPA chemical registrations that have been deemed effective against hard-to-kill germs that cause viruses such as COVID-19. Ask your cleaner to see the EPA badge on the product or compare the EPA registration number to the chemicals on List N.
