Electrostatic Sprayer:

What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialized solution that is combined with air and atomized by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray contains positively charged particles that are able to aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they're aimed at.

For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, cleaning staff only have to point and spray; the nature of the mist allows it to coat surfaces evenly, and envelope objects-even if the mist is only sprayed from one side. After the spray is applied, the sanitizing agent works to disinfect the covered surfaces. For this reason, electrostatic spray is an excellent solution for germ and contaminant ridden areas.

How Does Electrostatic Disinfection Work?

Electrostatic spray is electrically charged, allowing the appropriate sanitizers, mold preventatives and disinfectants to wrap around and evenly coat all types of surfaces for a more complete clean. As the chemical exits the electrostatic sprayer, it's given a positive electrical charge. The droplets then become attracted to all negative surfaces, covering the visible area, underside and backside, with the sanitizing agent. Surfaces that are already covered will repel the spray, making the method extremely efficient. This is a safe and effective way to clean offices and medical buildings.

Foggers:

The ULV Fogger (Ultra Low Volume) uses a liquid antimicrobial solution that is converted into a vapor. A fan then disperses the vapor to the desired areas. As more vapor is dispersed it develops into a thick mist or fog-like atmosphere, hence the name fogging. The fogging application will cover anything it comes in contact with: surfaces, floors, and hard-to-reach places that oftentimes go unnoticed. Disinfectant fogging also combats airborne pathogens as it passes through the air and lands on a surface. Once disinfection has been completed, all hard-surfaces are wiped down to remove excess solution. A recently disinfected home or business should be evacuated for at least six hours after being fogged.

Benefits of Disinfectant Fogging

Over time, your home or business naturally collects dust, bacteria, and viruses. Although germs gather everywhere, they are of special concern in high contact areas. High contact areas are the objects and surfaces where you and other individuals touch the most. Prime examples include doorknobs, table tops, and light switches. The high amount of traffic that visits these areas makes them perfect breeding grounds for germs and easy exposure points for cross-contamination. The more people that touch an area the more likely they leave bacteria for the next person to pick up. Fogging can apply disinfectant to large spaces including high contact areas, lowering the chance germs will spread between persons.

Paint Sprayer Disinfecting:

Applying disinfectant using an airless disinfectant sprayer is more efficient and effective than spray-and-wipe methods. Airless sprayers provide effective disinfecting by completely coating surfaces to meet required dwell times. Spray-and-wipe methods are not only inefficient, but also ineffective at providing proper dwell times and complete coverage of disinfectant.

This is more commonly used in large spaces such as buses, trains, gyms and factories where sensitive equipment and computers are not an issue.
