Electrostatic disinfection significantly increases cleaning outcomes while reducing costs due to demonstrably superior surface coverage and application times when compared to conventional methods.
The Benefits of Electrostatic Disinfection Technology
Electrostatic sprayers result in superior cleaning outcomes when compared to conventional disinfection methods with benefits that include:
- A reduction in time needed to thoroughly coat complex surfaces, such as desks, and disinfect extensive complex facilities, such as classrooms and gyms, resulting in faster turn-around times.
- Improved infection prevention and control of common deadly pathogens and pathogenic bacteria, including SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, and MRSA.
- Improved operator safety and engagement, which contributes to long-term workforce retention, and;
- A substantial reduction in resource use and waste, including electricity and disinfectant products-- which contributes to more desirable environmental outcomes.
What the Science Says About Electrostatic Sprayer Technology
For decades, scientists have studied the efficacy of various disinfectant application methods, including several spraying technologies.
Recent research conducted by the Cleveland Clinic and Cleavland VA, comparing conventional and emerging technologies, supports that electrostatic disinfection appliances are easier to use and are more effective.
According to CloroxPro;
One research team at the Cleveland Clinic and the Cleveland VA have investigated utilizing electrostatic spray technology in comparison to a high-level disinfection chamber and UV light.
Of the three technologies tested, electrostatic disinfection and the high-level disinfection chamber were the most effective, but the electrostatic device was considered the easiest technology to use as the required spray times for small items were only 20 seconds.
In another study, the same researchers found statistically significant reductions in pathogen contamination on portable equipment, wheelchairs, and waiting room surfaces when a disinfectant was applied via an electrostatic sprayer, without any wiping or pre-cleaning.
The regular implementation of electrostatic sprayer technologies dramatically improves facility hygiene outcomes, especially when compared to conventional methods.
Outcomes can vary based on operator training and experience and the type and quality of the chemicals deployed through the spraying apparatus.
Further, to ensure maximum efficacy, the sprayed surfaces must first be free of clutter and thoroughly cleaned with a commercial-grade detergent.
As such, to reap maximum benefits and to avoid damaging the built environment or other potentially adverse outcomes, only qualified service providers should be employed in the use, preparation, handling, and maintenance of electrostatic technologies.
