Is Electrostatic Disinfection Needed for Your Office?

Your office space should shock you. Within four hours, forty to sixty percent of surfaces in your office become contaminated. Germs like E. coli and H1N1 can live on surfaces for days.

Cleaning can kill a lot of those germs. But nearly all forms of cleaning leave some germs behind.

You need advanced, thorough measures to protect yourself and your coworkers. That's where electrostatic disinfection comes in. Here is a quick guide.


What Is Electrostatic Disinfection?

Electrostatic disinfection sounds like science fiction. But it is EPA-certified, and it has been used in offices for years.

Electrostatic disinfection uses a specialized spraying device and cleaning solutions. As the solution is released from the sprayer's nozzle, an electrode atomizes it with a negative charge. The particles in the solution are then attracted to a positive charge - which is the natural resting state of all things!

They cling to surfaces that have positive charges. When using an antimicrobial solution, the particles form a shield over the surfaces, killing germs already on them and killing germs that land on them.

Electrostatic disinfection does not replace routine cleaning. Spills and contact with the surface will reduce the effectiveness of the sanitizing agent. But electrostatic disinfection accompanies and promotes routine cleaning.

Electrostatic disinfection works for any environment. It is best for surfaces in high demand because when utilized with an antimicrobial solution it provides constant disinfection over a long period of time. Pick electrostatic disinfection to clean surfaces like door handles.


Is Electrostatic Disinfection Right for the Office?

Consider your current cleaning practices. Talk to the cleaners in your office building. Ask them about the sanitizing agents they use.

Look at the cleaning sprays that are available in the office kitchen. Test them out on surfaces.

If you have to clean surfaces often, use electrostatic disinfection with antimicrobial solutions. If you need aggressive measures to protect yourself, use electrostatic disinfection with antimicrobial solutions.

Restaurants deal with harmful germs every day. E. coli from meat can spread across surfaces, infecting customers and staff. Use electrostatic disinfection with antimicrobial solutions on cutting and serving surfaces.

Gym equipment is shared amongst many people on any given day. Spray antimicrobial solutions handgrips on treadmills, step machines, and barbells. Disinfect benches and bins where equipment is stored.

Customers touch all sorts of racks, handles, and shelves in retail stores. Chasing after every customer with a spray bottle is not an option. Electrostatic disinfection provides prompt and easy cleaning for every surface in your store.

Chairs, tables, and clipboards distribute germs throughout a medical office. Sick patients bring the germs that make them sick into the office. Electrostatic disinfection with antimicrobial solutions cleans the most common surfaces while still allowing patients to use them.

Plastics and metals appear in every office space. Printers, copiers, and staplers carry germs from person to person. Electrostatic disinfection cleans the smallest and most shared surfaces in little time.
