In today’s pandemic, it is critical for schools, businesses and organizations to make sure that all surfaces are disinfected thoroughly for students, employees and customers. Even though there are caustic cleaners and corrosive chemicals that can be used to do the job, electrostatic spraying is less expensive, more effective, and safer. With this in mind, it is important to understand the mechanics of electrostatic spraying. Just how does it work? Why is it so effective in keeping surfaces, buildings, and businesses clean and safe?
What Is Electrostatic Spraying?
Also called electrostatic disinfection, this is a technique that is commonly used in sensitive places such as healthcare facilities, restaurants and schools. With this cleaning technique, the room is sprayed with a mist that has been electrostatically charged. The mist is applied to surfaces and objects, aggressively adhering to contaminants and germs that might be present on these surfaces.
Because the particles in the spray are positively charged, they effectively cling to and coat everything they touch similar to static electricity. This is particularly helpful for objects in the corners that might be located in hard-to-reach places. The spray also covers all surfaces evenly, allowing the sanitizing agent to work effectively to remove these particles from the room. As a result, this electrostatic spray is particularly helpful for areas that have been contaminated with germs, dust, and debris.
Why Does This Work with Cleaning Agents?
Because the spray has been electrically charged, sanitizers, mold cleaning agents, and disinfectants wrap around this electric charge similar to a magnet. In this manner, the sanitizing agent will work with the spray to cover all types of surfaces in an even manner, providing a more comprehensive cleaning experience.
As the cleaning spray exits the electrostatic sprayer, it is charged positively. Then, the droplets coat all negative surfaces like a magnet, covering the visible area as well as bottoms and backs of surfaces and objects.
On the other hand, surfaces that have already been hit by the electrostatic spray are already positively charged. Similar to a magnet, they repel the positive electrostatic spray away. This ensures the spray coats the surface evenly.
An Effective Cleaning Agent for Viruses
In particular, electrostatic spray is effective against viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens. These particles are small and can hide in the cracks and crevices of various surfaces. Therefore, it is important to use a tool such as an electrostatic sprayer like Enviro-Master Service’s Virus Vaporizer that will enter these crevices easily, allowing sanitizing agents to work to maximum effect.
