With the pandemic sweeping across the globe, current measures are insufficient to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The virus is spread primarily via close and prolonged contact with an infected carrier. Social distancing may help, but only in delaying natural immunity and inevitable infections. Mask wearing too, may slow the spread, but ultimately, only a fully sealed respiratory system can prevent the inspiration of microscopic, virus-laden particles.
For regions that have taken the most vital measures against the pandemic, the economic consequences have been devastating. The EPA recommends “increasing ventilation with outdoor air and air filtration as part of a larger strategy that includes social distancing, wearing cloth face coverings or masks, surface cleaning and disinfecting handwashing, and other precautions.” A study by the Elsevier Public Health Emergency Collection, published by NCBI, states that hygiene is an essential part of a solution that includes PPE, engineering, “isolation and quarantine, social distancing and hand hygiene.”
But there is another solution above and beyond distance and personal protective equipment that can make these measures more effective and help your business stay open safely. It’s called electrostatic disinfection, and Safe Spray is leading the way in bringing this solution to businesses, healthcare facilities, and other high traffic locations.
What is Electrostatic Disinfection?
Electrostatic spray surface cleaning involves spraying an electrostatically charged mist over objects and surfaces. This technique uses a special solution of air and active ingredients that are atomized by an electrode in the sprayer. The spray itself contains charged particles that adhere to objects and surfaces. The particles cling to and coat any surface they’re aimed at since the spray particles are positively charged.
Electrically charged particles in the spray allow sanitizers, mold inhibitors, and other disinfectants to envelop and evenly coat any surfaces for complete sanitation. As the chemical leaves the electrostatic sprayer, it receives a positive charge. The droplets are then attracted to all negatively charged surfaces, covering visible areas, under and behind, with a sanitizing agent or agents. Surfaces that have already been sprayed will magnetically repel the spray. This means there is very little reason to worry about overusing the spray in each area since it automatically resists over-spraying, making this method extremely efficient.
Safe Spray’s disinfecting solutions are perfect for many industries, especially those with a lot of equipment in rooms, such as medical equipment, restaurant equipment, and furniture.
The Benefits of Safe Spray’s Electrostatic Spray Disinfection
The benefits of reducing the spread of COVID-19 are clear. Preventing illness is not only suitable for everyone, but it’s good for business as well. When surfaces have been sprayed using this method, customers, partners, employees, and patients will detect it through sight, smell, and touch. This sends a clear message that you are taking proactive measures to ensure pathogens in your establishment are being dealt with.
Reduces the time needed to cover and disinfect surfaces by 50% when compared to conventional cleaning and disinfection methods
Elevates the effectiveness of infection control, reducing the spread of viruses like Sars CoV-19, influenza, HIV, MRSA, and more
Applies chemical disinfectants in an efficient and controlled manner, eliminating the risk of waste through overuse
Prevents the costs associated with infectious public health threats
At the end of the day, as the pandemic progresses, establishments that demonstrate their commitment to taking disease prevention seriously will have a competitive edge over those that do not. Safe Spray’s innovative sanitation solution helps you to show that you place the health of your customers, employees, and partners first.
