Electrostatic Sanitation Treatments explained

When it comes to cleaning surfaces and objects, traditional dry and wet dusting techniques tend to be the obvious methods that come to mind.

While these cleaning techniques are tried and true, they do little more than spread dirt around, unless the cloths used are washed regularly. Dry dusting disturbs resting dust particles, redistributing them into the air and onto other surfaces, whilst wet dusting can involve the use of harmful cleaning chemicals and make it harder to reach certain spots or objects. To effectively clean sensitive places, such as clean rooms, research and development labs, healthcare facilities and schools, more practical cleaning solutions are available, and can be delivered by Viroclenz.

What is an Electrostatic Sanitation Treatment?

Electrostatic spray surface cleaning is the process of spraying an electrostatically charged mist onto surfaces and objects. Electrostatic spray uses a specialised solution, combined with air and atomised by an electrode inside the sprayer. Subsequently, the spray’s contents become positively charged with particles that can aggressively adhere to surfaces and objects. As the particles in the spray are positively charged, they cling to and coat any surface they are aimed at.

For awkwardly shaped objects or hard to reach places, cleaning technicians only need to point and spray the solution; the nature of the mist allows it to coat surfaces evenly and envelop objects—even if the mist is only sprayed from one side. After the spray is applied, the sanitising agent works to disinfect the covered surfaces. For this reason, Viroclenz’s electrostatic spray is an excellent solution for germ and contaminant ridden areas.

How does it work?

Electrostatic spray is electrically charged which enables the appropriate sanitisers, mould 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 sanitising agent. 

Is it the right solution for my business?

If your building contains rooms or areas that are sensitive to grime and germs, such as offices, high traffic areas, research and development facilities or clean rooms, then yes, electrostatic spray cleaning is the best option for cleaning all the surfaces and equipment in that room. Although electrostatic spray may sound like an aggressive method for regular commercial cleaning applications, the opposite is true.

Electrostatic spray disinfection can:

  • Reduce the time it takes to cover and disinfect all surfaces and hard-to-reach places by 50% compared to conventional methods
  • Improve infection control and limit the spread of viruses such as COVID-19, influenza, MRSA and many others
  • Allow the application of chemicals to be more efficient and controlled, eliminating the dangers of overuse
  • Prevent costly financial burdens associated with contagious healthcare infections
