    Electrostatic Disinfection Guide

    As COVID-19 cases continue to develop and the pandemic reaches its third year, individuals in the US continue to develop new methods of staving off the virus. These include the vaccinations that most of the US has now received and new cleaning and disinfecting methods. Here is a quick electrostatic disinfection guide to get you up-to-date to the latest methods of disinfecting.

    What is electrostatic disinfection?

    One of these new cleaning methods, electrostatic disinfection, uses a process whereby a janitor uses a spray machine that emits an electrostatically charged mist containing a disinfectant solution. When the janitor sprays the solution, it combines with air and electrodes inside the sprayer to atomize the cleaning solution.

    Advantages of Electrostatic Disinfection

    The surface receives a comprehensive spray rather than a spotty application using electrostatic disinfection. By applying an even coat, the janitor can ensure disinfection of all areas of the object or surface. The combination of electrostatically charged mist and disinfectant solution eliminates pathogens upon application. It does not provide a barrier to future contamination, though, making it vital to regular cleaning using this spray method.

    Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Recommendations

    The CDC recommends cleaning surfaces, so the virus cannot last. You should also wash and moisturize your hands after coughing, sneezing, or touching your face. Before entering a grocery or drug store, you should wash or sanitize your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer.

    You take these precautions because you don’t know if the store uses the same level of cleaning, such as electrostatic disinfection. This, combined with wearing a mask, can help keep you safer.

    Rather than simply cleaning your home or office, it needs disinfecting. Cleaning simply makes the area look and smell nice. Disinfecting goes beyond cleaning to sanitize an area so that germs and bacteria, and in this case, a virus, no longer exist on the surface.

    According to the CDC, you need to sanitize and disinfect:

    • bathroom counters
    • computers
    • computer keyboards
    • doorknobs
    • faucets and faucet knobs
    • game controllers
    • hard dining chairs, including the arms, back, and seat,
    • kitchen counters
    • light switches
    • table surfaces
    • toilets, including seats and handles,
    • TV remote controls.

    Essentially, any surface that you or another human touches needs disinfecting. Here’s the Safe Spray USA way of cleaning and disinfecting:

    1. Clean the surface to remove debris, dust, and most contaminants.
    2. Apply the electrostatic disinfection agent to the surface by spraying the area with the atomizer.

    Although time outdoors provides some safety from COVID-19, if you’re spending time on your patio or in your outdoor kitchen, don’t forget to clean those surfaces. This includes any tables, chairs, and a BBQ pit or outdoor stove surfaces. While spring and summer bring better weather, they also increase the number of allergy attacks. That means more sneezing, so you need to disinfect those areas frequently.
