Even the best efforts at sanitation can fall short when surfaces that should be disinfected are complex in shape or are hard to reach. Furthermore, your staff often has limited time to cover large areas where traditional spray and wiping methods take a substantial amount of time.
That is why electrostatic disinfection became something more than just a fancy procedure for many businesses in the world. With the COVID19 still not being under control, and with chances of us getting rid of it soon being close to zero – it actually helps to save lives. But how and why you might want to consider it?
Electrostatic disinfection is an innovative process that helps effectively kill germs, viruses (including COVID19), and pathogens. Obviously, it will only work if you use a specialized disinfectant from the list N (link). Choosing the right disinfectant will make the disinfection process more effective and efficient. For example, there are many disinfectants that can only be used in non-food environments, but there is a handful of those that are food-safe. The food-safe disinfectant can be a good choice for a grocery store or a restaurant. As compared to traditional spray-and-wipe, fogging, and UV lighting, electrostatic disinfection application systems present a much more sophisticated, and cost-effective approach to disinfecting any facility or establishment.
Here’s the technical description of the electrostatic process:
“Electrostatic spray disinfection is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. The electrostatic spray uses a specialized disinfectant solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that effectively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they are aimed at.”
Therefore, electrostatic disinfection effectively kills 99.999% of all germs on the surface. However, there is a catch – it does not protect the surfaces for too long by itself; but, combined with the groundbreaking solution – BIOPROTECT – electrostatic disinfection becomes your ultimate protector. BIOPROTECT is a great way for you to protect already cleaned and disinfected surfaces and make sure no germs and viruses are spreading. It works while you do not see it with a naked eye. After coating a surface, BIOPROTECT will create a microscopic film to protect the area for multiple weeks. It will automatically kill all the germs and viruses as long as it is there.
Some of the BIOPROTECTS characteristics:
- EPA Registration #87583-2
- Concentrate antimicrobial surface protectant
- Inhibits the growth of odor and stain-causing bacteria, mold, mildew, fungus, and algae.
- Remains active on applied surfaces for up to 90 days
- Non-leaching & non-migrating
It is important to notice, however, that you should not think that one service will solve all the problems since BIOPROTECT is a multi-week surface protector. It takes regular services to make sure that surfaces are still covered – especially those where you have high traffic and lots of high touch areas. It takes consistency and diligence on the part of the company you would hire – or if you would do it yourself – to ensure that all those areas are covered.
Electrostatic disinfection paired with BIOPROTECT, can dramatically decrease your needs in:
- Additional staff and the time of the existing staff
- Additional expenses in form of cleaning crews, disinfectants, and products
- It will save you time
