What is Electrostatic Spraying

What is Electrostatic Spraying? 

In reality, it can be very difficult to disinfect every nook and cranny of a building during clean up. This is because most hard-to-reach areas, spots, and crevices are covered in pathogenic bacteria and germs. Take a typical office building; for example, you’ve got file cabinets, desks, tables, drapes, window blinds, bulletin boards, etc. All the washing, trigger spraying, scrubbing, mopping, and sweeping is not enough to cover every spot in the building. Hence access to a wide array of specialized equipment is vital if you want to efficiently disinfect every surface. Here, we want to share with you a great life hack to make cleaning easy, effective, and fast. 


Electrostatic Spraying—What is it?  

Electrostatic spraying, otherwise referred to as electrostatic disinfection, involves the use of a specialized sprayer that has an electrode in its nozzle. This electrode delivers positive charges to the disinfectant solution contained in the sprayer, mixing it with air. Why positive charge? You may ask. Well, this is basic science. Most surfaces and even the earth are negatively or neutrally charged. Remember what they say about unlike charges? They attract.


How Does It Work?

Though electrostatic spray seems like a complex system, the science behind its method of operation is pretty basic. The average Joe can comprehend this fact. Like we stated earlier, unlike charges attract, just as with magnets. Recall that we said the molecules of the disinfectant are made positive by the electrode in the nozzle. When this disinfectant is sprayed, it becomes attracted to negatively or neutrally charged surfaces, thereby covering a wide area (including those hidden from the line of sight) thoroughly and completely. 


Why Is It More Efficient? 

Many factors make electrostatic spraying more efficient than other conventional methods you are familiar with. We will go on to list just a few of the advantages. 

Covers a Large Area: Because the chemical contains positive charges, the molecules repel each other as they actively seek out negative charges, inadvertently giving it a wider coverage. 

Less Waste: The charged molecules avoid areas already covered; this means less disinfectant is wasted. Less disinfectant being wasted means it is cost-effective. 

Saves Energy: The even layers of the disinfectant dry on their own without needing a wipe off. This will reduce the amount of labor, thereby saving energy. 

Saves Time: It covers a wider area compared to other conventional methods in a shorter time. 


Is It Effective Against All Pathogens?

Well, it largely depends on the disinfectant you are using. The electrostatic spray is just a specialized spray. It’s the chemical in it that does the disinfecting job.

At Clean Rite Clean Service of Chicago, Corp, we use Aseptic Plus+ Disinfectant. Why? Because it is 99.9999% effective against a wide range of pathogens, ranging from over 30 classes of bacteria, germs, allergens, to viruses including those that cause MRSA, Norovirus, H1N1, E. coli, Salmonella, and Listeria. It does this by actively destroying their cell walls, thereby leading to their death. The novel coronavirus wreaking havoc across the globe is not spared!

Where Can You Use Electrostatic Spray Disinfection? 

We recommend that you can use electrostatic spray disinfection anywhere sanitization or disinfection is needful. Ranging from classrooms, office buildings, gyms, hospitals, places of worship, cafeterias, waiting rooms to desktops, floors, and even walls. The list is virtually endless. 

How Long Does It Last? 

Electrostatic Spray Disinfection does not last quite long. You can only use it to get rid of harmful pathogens once, and that’s all. If you’re looking for a method that could serve as a protective shield against future pathogenic attacks, electrostatic disinfection is not a perfect choice for that. 


How Safe is It for The Person Using It?

Besides safety protocols for using electrostatic spraying, you’ll want to acquire the necessary electrostatic spraying equipment. We know you now know the basics, but to efficiently carry out this disinfection technique and maximize its benefit, it’s best to opt for the service of a cleaning company; a reputable one. Save yourself the hassle and choose Clean Rite Clean Service of Chicago, Corp, we deliver exceptional results when it comes to electrostatic spray disinfection and sanitization.


Are There Different Types of Electrostatic Disinfection Spray Available? 

Yes. You can find different styles available in various designs of these sprayers on the market. Different spray systems serve different purposes. This means it’s virtually impossible to find one size that fits all. Be wary of manufacturers who claim their product can serve all purposes; another reason why you need to get in touch with an experienced professional to get your electrostatic disinfection done. 


A Final Note 

Electrostatic spraying is a better way to disinfect. Now that you are armed with the knowledge of this disinfection method, we will help you can cover a very wide area in a very short time. 

The positive molecules of the disinfectant are electromagnetically drawn to the negative or neutral surfaces in your surroundings. This makes them cling together as the disinfectant begins destroying a wide array of harmful pathogens that contaminate various surfaces. If you have any questions or inquiries, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to clear the air; don’t be a stranger.
