What's the deal with Electrostatic Cleaning?

Since COVID-19 took hold electrostatic cleaning has become common, but what is it?

The increased focus all businesses have on cleaning and disinfecting has seen a rise in the use of electrostatic sprayers. This type of cleaning equipment is effective and popular but what exactly does it do? Electrostatic spray equipment provides disinfection in any given area. It is an effective way of disinfecting large areas quickly and evenly. Rather than scrubbing and wiping individual surfaces, the sprayer coves everything evenly. It has become popular because it helps to prevent cross-contamination easily in larger areas such as schools and businesses.

How does Electrostatic Cleaning work?

Electrostatic cleaning coats every surface in any given space evenly with disinfecting solution. Electrostatic spray guns and sprayers work through applying a positive charge to liquid disinfectant as it passes through the nozzle of the gun. The positively charged disinfectant droplets are then attracted to negatively charged surfaces. The result is an evenly and efficiently coating of disinfectant to all hard non-porous surfaces.

Bacteria and other hazardous compounds spread quickly in hard-to-reach areas such as walls and ceilings. Traditional methods of cleaning and bottled spray disinfectants don’t often include wall and ceiling cleaning, but this is easy and straightforward with electrostatic cleaning. Some electrostatic sprays can disinfect 10,000 square feet using just a single disinfectant solution tank. Also, as the droplets of disinfectant are electrically charged, they wrap themselves fully around the surface, completely covering it. School desks and hospital counters can be completely disinfected in a matter of seconds.

Chemicals used in Electrostatic Cleaning

There are a range of different disinfectant chemicals that may be needed for electrostatic spraying. You can discuss the options with your cleaning company and be sure the chemicals being used are suitable for your particular environment. Certain chemicals should be avoided in food preparation areas for example.
