Electrostatic Cleaning in West Sussex

Electrostatic disinfection fights against a variety of pathogens including COVID-19.

Electrostatic cleaning is quickly becoming the new standard in infection control, but what exactly is it?

Electrostatic cleaning (electrostatic disinfection) is a touchless application of chemicals used to efficiently and evenly coat surfaces with a disinfecting solution. The electrostatic applicator applies a negative charge to the disinfecting solution as it leaves the application tool.

What is the difference between Fogging and Electrostatic?

Although the same disinfectants can be used in both a fogger and an electrostatic sprayer, the technology and the results are quite different.

Electrostatic cleaning

Electrostatic sprayers positively charge the disinfectant particles and since surfaces/objects are neutral or negatively charged, it allows for full, even coverage of all surfaces, regardless of their position to the spray. Objects and surfaces actually ATTRACT the disinfectant from the electrostatic sprayer!

Fogging systems

Fogging systems deliver very small droplets that PASSIVELY deposit on surfaces, based on the direction of spray and the effect of gravity, which may result in uneven coverage. These small droplets do not wrap around surfaces and objects, meaning commonly touched areas such as the inside of handles or switches on the underside of machines, are left unsanitized.

Benefits of Electrostatic Cleaning

We offer regular and one off cleaning to a large variety of businesses and commercial premises.

Touchless application

There is no need to touch or wipe the surfaces after spraying (dependent on cleaning solution). This provides a fast and effective application method, while using less solution.

Reduce cross contamination

In most cases, a spray-and-wipe technique can move bacteria from one surface to another. Cross contamination can be considerably reduced with the use of electrostatic cleaning.

Liquid adhesion and coverage

Using our electrostatic sprayer enables a quick and effective chemical application. As fully-charged droplets hit the surface they create an even spread. Particles hold their cationic charge for approx. 2-3 seconds – preventing drips. This allows the solution to cover hidden and shadowed areas, and also enables you to cover a large area in a small amount of time. These sprayers have been designed to meet dwell times for solutions so they can work to their full capabilities.

ECO friendly

The sprayers we use give an eco-friendly approach to disinfection by spraying up to 65% less chemicals per square foot.

Frequently asked questions

How long does it last?

Electrostatic disinfection does not create a protective barrier. It disinfects, or kills, unwanted pathogens from every targeted surface, but won’t protect those surfaces from becoming infected again. Institutions like medical facilities, schools and gyms may require electrostatic disinfection more frequently because they are introduced to new, potentially harmful pathogens on a daily basis.

Is it safe to use around electronics?

Electrostatic disinfection can be safely performed around electronics such as laptops, monitors and keyboards as long as it is not applied directly at close range. We recommend putting away paper documents, along with anything else you don’t want sprayed before the scheduled service.

How long until facilities can be used after disinfection?

While your facility is safe to enter immediately after it has been sprayed, we recommend waiting at least 10 minutes to allow the disinfectant to dry. This also allows enough time for the disinfectant to dwell on surfaces long enough to kill unwanted pathogens.

Is it safe for fabrics and upholstered surfaces?

It is safe to use on upholstered surfaces, however, to be safe we perform a spot test on fabrics before spraying as some dyes can be affected by disinfectants.

Why add electrostatic disinfection to your cleaning schedule?

Electrostatic disinfection is not a replacement to your regularly scheduled service. But it is a great addition that guarantees that all surfaces, even small areas or upholstered surfaces that can’t get wiped down, are disinfected. Remember, it’s not just disinfecting the tops of surfaces but underneath and all the way around.
